Tincknell Family History
Tincknell Name Meaning
English: habitational name from Tintinhull (Somerset). The placename may derive from an earlier Proto-Welsh placename Tinten (perhaps from a word related to Welsh din ‘fort’ + an unknown element) or from an Old English personal name Tinta (genitive Tintan) + hyll ‘hill’. Tyntenhull and Tincknell are equated in the index for 1604 to the Cecil Papers vol. 16.
