Wendlingen History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Wendlingen family


The surname Wendlingen was first found in Norfolk at Wendling, a parish, in the union of Mitford and Launditch, hundred of Launditch, in the W. division of Norfolk. Some time before 1267 an abbey was founded by William de Wendling, in honor of the Blessed Virgin, for Praemonstratensian canons. The name is thought to have meant "settlement of the family or followers of a man called Waendel" which was derived from the Old English personal name + ingas [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

. The place was listed in the Domesday Book as Wenlinga and was land held by the Abbot of St. Edmund and was rather small by standards of that day having only six acres, room for only one plough. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
