Lineey or Lindley or Linehey? I took a picture of a tombstone in Ireland last week from County Meath from the 1750's and it appears that they name is spelled Lineey one place and possibly Lindely or Linchey another. I am going through Ancestry trying to make an exact name match but have not as yet. If anyone would like to try and decipher this feel free to contact me.

Hi,
I have no idea whether Lindley was ever spelled a different way. I have not seen another spelling, however, spelling was not as codified as it is now. I have my Lindleys in Cheshire before they joined the Quaker group in Ireland. It is spelled Lindley there. I always joked that it came from living lea side of a linden tree and that is pretty true I find.
