The Anglin ancient family history was found in the archives.

Surnames developed a wide number of variants over the centuries. Many different spelling variations of the same name can be traced back to a single original root. Also, when a bearer of a name emigrated from Ireland it was not uncommon that their original name would be incorrectly transcribed in the record books upon arrival at their new location. Some names have dozens of spelling variations. Some Surnames were also altered over the years based on how they sounded phonetically, by their sound, and depending on the prevailing political conditions it may have been advantageous to change a name from one language to another. This was especially so in Ireland where most Gaelic names were 'anglicized' at some stage.

Variants of the name Anglin include Anglim and Angland. In Irish this name is O'hAngluinn. The most numerous form of the name is Angland this being found in the Griffith's County Cork Valuation, 1851-1853, and in the Fiants the early anglicized forms are O'Hanglen, Anglyn, Angiant, Angyllant and Anglound. The name is found in many instances in County Cork and adjacent areas of neighbouring Counties in wills, marriage licences, and bonds. The earliest reference of the name is found in the ancient document 'The Four Masters' under the date 1490 referring to Fionn O'hAnghluinn, Chief tympanist of Ireland. In modern times the names Anglin and Anglim are mostly associated with County Cork.The Anglin family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Anglin descendants.
