Where did the English Banes family come from? What is the English Banes family crest and coat of arms? When did the Banes family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Banes family history?The origins of the Banes name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Bainton, in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Banes were recorded, including Baines, Banes, Baynes, Bayns, Baynnes, Bainnes and others.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Banes family emigrate to North America:
Banes Settlers in the United States in the 17th Century
Banes Settlers in the United States in the 18th Century
Banes Settlers in the United States in the 19th Century
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Vel arte vel marte
Motto Translation: Either by art or strength.
The Banes Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Banes Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
