I was not able to find a site to give me a lot of historical information on the Long surname origin. I will post what I have found and suggest that anyone with more information forward it to me.

Spelling variations include: Long, Longe and others.

First found in Wiltshire where they were seated from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Some of the first settlers of this name or some of its variants were: Edward Long settled in Virginia in 1649; along with Henry in 1774; James in 1642; Jane in 1624; Catherine in 1635; Ralph in 1638; Richard in 1642; Robert his wife and two sons in 1643.
