This rather rare surname probably was derived fro the Old English word "tynen" which was commonly used for a "field" or "hedge."
The surname Tinline was first found in Roxburghshire where it is presumed to be a rather rare local name. Interestingly, the Tinlin(e) spelling is listed more frequently in Scotland, whereas the "g" ending is generally further south.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Tinling, Tinline, Tinlin and others.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Pax et copia
Motto Translation: Peace and plenty.
