Reply to: ORIGIN OF THIS NAME by Lyndall
Dictionary of English Surnames lists Lindall, Lindale, Lindell, meaning 'from Lindal (a place in Lancashire, England)'.

The village is now called Lindal-in-Furness:

'Lindal-in-Furness sat in a valley astride the road from Ulverston to Barrow. The name Lindal means 'Valley Where Lime Trees Grow'. The first recorded use of the name was around 1220 when it was known as 'Lindale', but by 1225 the village as recorded as 'Lindal' its present day spelling. The name should not be confused with the village of Lindale in the South Lakeland District. The population of Lindal is approx. 600. In 1745 Lindal iron ore first exported from Barrow.' is a quote from this page: http://www.lancstowns.co.uk/Barrowtowns.htm
