Name Meaning

English: habitational name from places in Lancashire and Sussex. The former seems from the present-day distribution of the surname to be the major source, and is named from Old English scingel ‘shingle(s)’ + tūn ‘enclosure’, ‘settlement’; the latter gets its name from Old English sengel ‘burnt clearing’ + tūn.
