PRINGLE Family HistoryThis famous surname is Scottish. It is locational and was originally spelt Hoppryngel, Hoppringle, Hopringle or even Obrinkel and Oppringyle. It derives from an estate known as the lands of Hoppringel, near the village of Stow, in the former county of Roxburghshire. The derivation is from the Old English word "hop" meaning an enclosed valley, and Prjonn, a Norse-Viking personal name of the pre 7th century. To these elements was added the suffix "gil", another word which has the same meaning of an enclosed valley or ravine. The surname dates back to the 13th Century (see below), making it one of the earliest to be recorded anywhere...
