Haynes

 

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.
GENERATION 1

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 Commonwealth (Banks).
William and Richard Haynes settled in Salem, Massachusetts and are seen as associates in several legal documents. Because of this, and the fact they arrived on the same ship from the same locality of England, it is believed they were brothers or at least closely related.

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).

GENERATION 2
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:

1 Margaret Haynes (Mar 3, 1686 - Feb 10, 1753)
   Married Thomas Kingsbury (1681-1751) on  Nov 25, 1706
   1. Elizabeth Kingsbury
2 Hannah Haynes (Abt. 1678 - )
   Married John Heath on Dec 16, 1697
   1. Bartholomew Heath (Abt. 1710 - )
3 Sarah Haynes (Jan 19, 1681 - )
   Married (1) Thomas Kingsbury (1653-1720) on Jan 19, 1702
   Married (2) William Corbett on Oct, 1721

Five years after the death of Jonathan Haynes, Haverhill records give the marriage of his daughter Sarah, January 19, 1702/3, to Thomas Kingsbury, Senior. She was his second wife. Eventually this family, as did others from Haverhill, removed to Windham County, Conn. and in Plainfield, when a distribution of town lands was being made, "whereas through the Goodness of God Thomas Kingsbury is returned from a Long Captivity and is now Providentially Cast amongst us," there was deeded to him a tract of twenty acres lying on the north side of the River Moosup. Among the twenty-seven subscribers, "lawful proprietors of the land," was his elder brother, James Kingsbury, who had been one of the early Plainfield settlers. The deed was dated October 7, 1708 and approved in the Town meeting the 2nd of December, 1708. It is not clear as to whether the captivity had been before or after the marriage to Sarah Haynes.  Nearly twelve years later, Plainfield records give the death of Thomas Kingsbury, June 11, 1720. His children by his first wife had been killed in an Indian raid in Haverhill in March 1696/7, and there were no children of the second marriage. In his will he left all the land and building where I now dwell to his beloved Cozen Thomas Kingsbury, who was his nephew and his wife's brother-in-law, married to her sister Margaret Haynes in Haverhill, November 25, 1706. Also named in the will is Cousin Bartholomew who lives with me and to continue to live with my wife. This was his wife's nephew, the ten-year-old son of her sister Hannah Haynes and John Heath, who had been married in Haverhill December 16, 1697, two months before Jonathan Haynes was killed.  The widow, Sarah (Haynes) Kingsbury, married, as his second wife, William Corbett. First Church records of Lebanon, Conn. show that Sarah Corbett was admitted to the church October 29, 1721.
