Not much to go on in your original post. There are Tintinger's in New Zealand who immigrated to New Zealand from South Africa 16 March 1977, (Ronald Tintinger 2 April 1933 from Johannesburg).

Barbar Tintinger (38) born about 1900 left Southampton, England for Cape Town, South Africa on German African Shipping line on 22 September 1938

Suggest that if the Tintinger Family were not long in South Africa, that you should look at the Tintingers of Germany and Rheinland, Prussia
