The surname Tinney was first found in the West Riding of Yorkshire
at Tinsley, a parochial chapelry, in the union of Rotherham, S. division of the wapentake
of Strafforth and Tickhill. 
The place name dates back to the Domesday Book
of 1086 where it was first listed as Tineslauue 
and literally meant "mound of a man called Tynni, " from the Old English personal name + "hlaw." 
However, the earliest record of the name was not found in Yorkshire
but in Surrey
where Adam de Tindesle was listed in the Pipe Rolls
in 1207. Richard de Tyntesle was listed in Sussex
in 1327. 
The Yorkshire Poll Tax
Rolls of 1372 lists Lecia de Tyneslawe.
