About My Family/(Hampshire) Slingo and Molloy
As some of you now know the Slingo name appears to come from the misspelling of Slinger this 
has been proved by limited DNA testing, and the connection is through a member of the Slinger 
family living in USA. 
In comparing 67 markers, the probability that Phillip John Slinger and Graham Slingo shared a 
common ancestor within the last 12 Generations is 96.34%, and within the last 28 Generations 
100% Also a match was found to my DNA (on Ancestry) from a family of a different name but with 
ancestors living in a small village near Oxford England almost next door to Slingo's.

Early examples of the recordings include John Slingere in the 1297 account of the Duchy of 
Cornwall, and Adam Le Sclyngere in the 1327 Subsidy Rolls of Essex. Later recordings include 
Henricus Slenger. 

In the 1379 Poll Tax rolls of Yorkshire, and Peter Slinger who married Jennet Atkinson on 
February 12th 1592 at St. Cuthberts church, Pateley Bridge, Yorkshire. In so far as the name 
has an epicentre, this seems to be Yorkshire, where the coat of arms was granted. This has the 
blazon of a blue field, a silver fretty, a border nebulee in gold, a chief indented, also gold. 

The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Slinger, which 
was dated 1248, in the rolls of the Abbey of Bec, Warwickshire, during the reign of King Henry 
111, known as 'The Frenchman', 1216 - 1272. 

Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was 
known as Poll Tax. 
Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading 
to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

From Ancestry.co.uk
Northern English and Dutch: from an agent derivative of Middle English sling, Dutch slinge  
strap for hurling stones’ (of Low German origin), hence SLYNGER an occupational name for a 
soldier or hunter armed with a sling, or nickname for someone who was a particularly good shot 
with this weapon. 
The word was also used of the ropes and pulleys used for lifting blocks of stone during 
building work, and the surname would also have denoted a worker who operated these slings, (a 
Mason whom cut stones, a Slinger whom engineered how to placed them when building Castles and 
other large buildings).
 For more on surnames 

A slinger was one that threw ranged weapons. Kind regards, Marvin Hull,

  I wish to thank all whom have given me information and other sites on line whom I have 
obtained details from, While all care has been taken to correctness of information do your own 
checking, as I do not take any responsibility for mistakes but if you find one let me know.
Graham (Slingofamily).

DNA has proved there is a connection to the Slinger tree and on the Oxford site shows the 
connection family, I do have more data but for simplistic sake of matching have left this out, 
the main objective is to find our connection.To look at this tree go to the Oxford Slingo tree 

The use of TEMPEST as a first name provides a paper connection as to the Slinger's marriage 
into the illustrious TEMPEST family. Whom also is a ancestral family of GEORGE WASHINGTON (The 
1st U.S.A. President [1788-1796] this is shown in this tree see Isabel TEMPEST (1380 -1422)
All Tempest information is from a Transcript of Eleanor Blanche Tempest's 'Tempest Pedigrees' 
(pre 1820) unless Source citations are provided and these are on (Tempest, Rodger The Lord of 
Bracewell, (1))and (Tempest, Ulchil) please read these citation links!

While the Oxford family whose head is Edward Slingo will be directly connected to the above as 
his son is named Tempest Slingo, the other Oxford branch and the Hampshire slingo's maybe 
from another earlier branch of the Slinger's of North Yorkshire before the Tempest connection.

  Also the some of the Argentina Slingo's are now on the Oxford tree but not connected together 
as the information is not forthcoming yet , it seems that they all descended from the one 
source, the brother of Sir William Slingo, James Henry Slingo
