Where did the English Haynes family come from? What is the English Haynes family crest and coat of arms? When did the Haynes family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Haynes family history?The Anglo-Saxon name Haynes comes from the baptismal name for Haine. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.
One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Haynes has appeared include Haines, Hains, Hain, Haine, Haynes, Hainson and others.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Haynes arrived in North America very early:
Haynes Settlers in the United States in the 17th Century
Haynes Settlers in the United States in the 18th Century
Haynes Settlers in the United States in the 19th Century
