Origin of the Name Tindale
The origin of the name Tindale
was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Variants of Tindale include Tindall, Tindell, Tindle, Tindill and Tindel. This is a locality name meaning 'of Tynedale' from residence by the first bearers on the banks of the river Tyne. This name is of English descent and is found in many ancient manuscripts in the above country. Examples of such are a William de Tyndale who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379 and a Robertus de Tyndale who was also recorded in the same year in this ancient document. Names were recorded in these ancient documents to make it easier for their overlords to collect taxes and to keep records of the population at any given time. When the overlords acquired lands by either force or gifts from their rulers, they created charters of ownership for themselves and their vassals. In Ireland this name is usually of immigrant origin having been introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century.
The Tindale coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Tindale descendants.
