Ancestors of the Clinton Family

The Clintons were a great Norman family who arrived in England with William the Conqueror in 1066. They were awarded the Lordship of Clinton in 1067 for their efforts during the Conquest of 1066  The surname was then known as de Clinton and remained this way until mid 1300's. At this time the "de" was dropped and the name has been Clinton ever since. The Earl of Lincoln is associated with the name Clinton.

Note: William Jefferson Clinton, the former U.S. President, is not a Clinton. He was born William Jefferson Blythe IV.

The ancestry report uses 'Ahnentafel' numbering. This means that the numbers for a person's parents will be twice as large as that person's number. For example, if a woman's number is 15, her father will be number 30, and her mother will be 31. Her child will be number 7.
