This name is of Anglo-Saxon origin and is topographical for one resident at the end of a settlement of a street. The derivation is from the Old English pre 7th Century "ende", (Middle High German "ende", from the Old High German "enti"). Early recorded forms of the name include Nicholas Attehende - "The Subsidy Rolls of Staffordshire, (1332); John Atte-Hinde, rector of Burnham Ulp, Norfolk, (1340), and Robert de Ynde, (Gloucestershire, 1369). These forms result from the insertion of "h" between the final vowel of the preposition "atte" and the initial vowel of "end(e)", also written as "ind(e)". The surname with variant spellings Inde, Ind and Ends, is particularly well recorded in London Church registers from the late 16th Century. On May 16th 1585, Thomas Ind, an enfant, was christened in St. Botolph's, Bishopsgate. Samuell Inde and Frances Royston were married in St. Gregory by St. Pauls in 1606, and on May 25th 1655, William Ends was christened in St. Brides, Fleet Street. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Mary End, (christening), which was dated November 2nd 1679, in "St. Dunstans in the East", London, during the reign of King Charles 11, known as "The Merry Monarch", 1660 - 1685. 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.
