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. [1] The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Tineslauue [2] and literally meant "mound of a man called Tynni, " from the Old English personal name + "hlaw." [3] 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. [4] The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1372 lists Lecia de Tyneslawe. [5]
