The surname Tindale originated in or near Tynedale, the valley of the river Tyne, or in a place called Tindale, in Cumberland. Tindale is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. There are a variety of types of local surnames, some of which include: topographic surnames, which could be given to a person who lived beside any physical feature, such as a hill, stream, church or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties. In this case, the surname Tindale derived from the Celtic word tina, which means to flow. This was commonly adopted as a river name. The second component of the surname comes from the Old English word dæl, which means valley. Thus, the surname Tindale referred to one who lived in the valley of the river named Tyne. The earliest records of this surname indicated that members of the Tindale family resided in Northumberland, along the banks of the River Tyne.

Tindale Early Origins



The surname Tindale was first found in Northumberland, where Tindale is an extensive ward or district which includes the Dale of Tyne. "The great Border family so called had their chief seat at Langley, near Haydon Bridge, and were styled in charters of temp. Henry II." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
Langley Castle originally held by the Barons of Tynedale and from them descend the Tyndall family. The parish of Warden in Northumberland was home to another branch of the family. "The manor and church, in 1298, belonged to the monks of Hexham, to whom they had been granted, according to the record, 'from a time beyond all memory,' by Adam de Tyndale." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
We found two people name Adam de Tyndale in our search. The first was born in 1155 and died in 1192 and his son was born in 1185 and died in 1233. One of these gentleman is also believed to have founded a Benedictine nunnery, dedicated to God, St. Mary, and St. Patrick in Lambley, Northumberland. Another early record of the family was Adam de Tindal who was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Northumberland in 1165. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

This record is believed to be of Adam de Tyndale Sr. William de Tyndale was also listed in Northumberland during the reign of Edward I. Thomas deo Tyndale was listed in 1317 and a few years later, William de Tyndale was listed in 1357. The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list Robertus de Tyndale in 1379. [4]CITATION[CLOSE]
