TONGE Family HistoryThis unusual and long-established surname, of Anglo-Saxon origin, is found chiefly in Shropshire, Kent, Lancaster and the West Riding of Yorkshire, and has four possible sources, the first being a locational name from places in the above mentioned counties, derived from the Olde English pre 7th Century "tong" meaning "situation by a fork in a road or river". The second source is occupational for a maker or user of tongs, from the Olde English "tonge", meaning "tongue". Peter Tonge, a shoemaker, is recorded in the Wills of Chester in 1572.
