Name Meaning

Of English origin: 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, habitational name from a place so called in Sussex, altered by false analogy with the alternation in Norman names between -ville and -field.
