The Anglo-Saxon name Synngletirn comes from the family having resided in the village of Singleton found in the counties of Lancashire and Sussex. The surname Synngletirn is a habitation surname which was originally derived from pre-exiting names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The literal meaning of the surname Synngletirn is farm in the burnt clearing from the Old English word sengel. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Synngletirns to arrive on North American shores: Joe Singleton, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; John Singleton and Henry Singleton, who both came to Virginia in 1651; Grace Singleton, who settled in Virginia in 1653.
