The middle name "Lincoln"

Posted: 1494008496000
Classification: Query
Surnames: Preece, Lincoln
Where did this name originate or become part of the family? The first time I note it was with Richard Lincoln Preece (B: 1758). Was it a common name during the mid 1700's?
It also appears that on occasion the mothers maiden name or that of a prominent family member was sometimes used as a middle name. Is this how it became part of the Preece legacy?
Anyone have any ideas?
