LYNN Family History

Recorded as Lin, Linn, Lyn, Lyne, Lynn and possibly others, this interesting and long established surname has three distinct origins, each with its own history and derivation. Firstly, it may be medieval English, and a locational name from any of the various places named with the British (pre- Roman) "lenna", an ancestor of the Welsh "llyn", meaning lake. These places include Lynn, a hamlet south west of Lichfield in Staffordshire; Lynn in East Shropshire; and any of the three Lynns in the county of Norfolk, being prefixed King's Lynn, South Lynn and West Lynn.
