Just thought I would share the origin of the Hindley name.
In the Doomsday Book compiled during the reign of William the Conqueror there is mention of a little town in Lancashire called Hind Lee (as in the deer and the direction in sailing). There were maybe about 200 inhabitants at that time. Over the years the spelling of the town was changed to Hindley and most of the original inhabitants took that name. The Hindley name is also Saxon in origin not Norman French, which means that Hind Lee was around way before William the Conqueror.
A little information to pass a long. Good luck to all!
