Name Meaning

English: probably a habitational name from a lost or unidentified place, perhaps in France. The surname is not found in present-day English records, but is recorded in Hampshire (also in the forms Lenvill, Linvel) in the 17th century. Perhaps it is an altered form of English Lindfield or Lingfield, a habitational name from a place so called in Sussex, altered by false analogy with the alternation in Norman names between -ville and -field.
