Early Origins of the Tint family
The surname Tint was first found in Somerset
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor of Wrexhall. Traditionally they are descended from the noble house of Arundel and it is said that a young knight of that house appeared on the field of the Battle of Ascalon in 1192 and so gallantly distinguished himself that King Richard Coeur de Lion praised the maiden knight who had borne himself so well as a Lion, with deeds equal to that of six Crusaders. The King granted to him the arms of a lion surrounded by six crosses. The family later enjoyed three or four centuries of influential west country life from their seat in Somerset.

Migration of the Tint family to the New World and Oceana
Faced with the chaos present in England
at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia
in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England
went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Tint, or a variant listed above:
