PING Family History

This unusual and interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from Pinge Wood in Berkshire. The placename was recorded as "Punningstoce" in the Saxon Chartulary (815), and derives from the Olde English pre 7th Century "Punna", a personal name, with "ing", people of, and "stoc", place (sometimes used in the specialized sense of a meeting place or a monastery or cell); hence, "the place of Punna's people". Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their birthplace.
