BINGHAM Family History

This famous and noble surname is English and locational. It originates from the medieval village of Bingham, now a parish in the city of Nottingham. The derivation is from the pre 7th century Norse-Viking word "bingr", meaning a byr or manger, and the earlier Olde English "ham", a homestead, or more usually, a farm. The first known recording of the village name being in the famous Domesday Book of 1086 in the spelling of Binggheham, before being recorded as Bingeham in 1165. Such locational names were in the first instance given to the lord of the manor, as in the first recording shown below, and early examples of the name recording include William de Bingham of Lincoln in 1257 and William Byngham in the Assize Register of the city of Nottingham in 1433...
