|Origin of the Haynes Name|
English (Shropshire): from the Welsh personal name Einws, a diminutive of
Einion (of uncertain origin, popularly associated with einion ‘anvil’).
English: patronymic from the medieval personal name Hain 2. English:
habitational name from Haynes in Bedfordshire. This name first appears in
Domesday Book as Hagenes, which Mills derives from the plural of Old English
hægen, hagen ‘enclosure’. Irish: variant of Hines.
The name Haynes or Haines is said to be of Saxon or Welsh origin and is claimed by some authorities to mean 'Height or Pinnacle.' It is found in ancient records in various forms Eines, Eynes, Haynes, Heanes, Hayns, Hains, Haines, Hayne and Haynes and in early American records in the last three forms.
My Haynes ancestors
|The main source of information on the Haynes family on this page is briefly summarized from articles published on the internet in the Four Drive Genealogy Newsletter Vol II #5 and #6 (1998) by Donald Chinnery. The articles were written and researched by Paulette Haynes. The newsletter on William is linked here and Jonathan's newsletter is here. Both provide an excellent in-depth history of the family.|
01. William Haynes
arrived in America 18 September 1634 at Boston, Massachusetts on the ship
"Griffin" from Dunstable (Bedfordshire) England. In his company was Richard
Haynes, also from Dunstable. This record is found in Planters of the
Charles W. Upham suggested in his book, Salem Witchcraft, that because of the great purchasing power of William and Richard Haynes, and the respect demonstrated toward them, they were persons of great means and influence.
Sometime prior to July 1644, William Haynes married Sarah Ingersoll, a daughter of Richard Ingersoll, his partner in the Weston Grant purchase. William died some time in 1651. His widow Sarah then married Joseph Hoton on November 13, 1651.
They had 3 documented children: Jonathan (1648-1698), Sarah 1648-1676), and Thomas (1651-1709).
|02. Jonathan Haynes, son of William
and Sarah was born in 1646. In 1669 Jonathan Haynes apparently
contemplated moving to East New Jersey, and is seen in New Jersey deed
records dated 1673, along with several other Newbury men, as purchasing
land in Woodbridge, East New Jersey. It is not known if he actually went
to New Jersey or not; several of the Newbury men did eventually settle
there, but at any rate, Jonathan was in Newbury on 30 December 1674 to
marry Sarah Moulton. She was a daughter of William Moulton
and Margaret Page.Some histories state that Jonathan had married shortly
before to a sister, Mary Moulton, but many people now believe that an
error had been made in the recording of the marriage since Mary Moulton is
recorded in the Moulton family as dying in 1664.
Sometime between 1684 and 1687, Jonathan moved to Haverhill, Massachusetts where he and four of his children were captured by Indians in 1696. The Indians took them to Penacook (Concord) New Hampshire, where they divided. One group of Indians took the elder Jonathan and Thomas to Maine, where they escaped. Mary, Jonathan and Joseph were taken to Canada and were sold to the French. Mary was redeemed for one hundred pounds of tobacco carried up on a hand sled, but her two brothers, Jonathan and Joseph remained in Canada, married there, and became wealthy farmers. Jonathan and his son, Thomas returned to Haverhill, but on February 22, 1698, Jonathan Haynes was killed by the Indians.
The children of Jonathan and Sarah are:
03. Mary Haynes, daughter of Jonathan was born on March 3rd, 1687 in Haverhil, MA. When she was a child, she was captured by Indians and taken to Canada. She was ransomed for 100 lbs of tobacco. She married John Preston on January 17, 1707, the son of Samuel Preston and Susannah Gutterson. I descend from their daughter Susanna Preston who married Richard Adams.
