Rink History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Rink family

The surname Rink was first found in Norfolk where conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Ringstead, held by Norman noble Roger de Evreux as an under tenant also at Great Bircham and Old Buckenham in that same county who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. Roger held from William de Scohies who was tenant in chief. Roger was the son of Comte de Evreux, who was the son of Richard 1, Duke of Normandy.

Roger Ringstead (died 1366), was Bishop of Bangor, perhaps a native of Ringstead in Norfolk, educated at Cambridge, where he became doctor and professor of theology. [1]
