Early Origins of the Ameen family
The surname Ameen was first found in Lincolnshire where the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Osgooby, held by Odo the Bishop of Bayeux, the King's half brother who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.

"The manor was possessed by Sir William Armyn, at first keeper of the privy seal and vice-chancellor to Edward II., and afterwards lord chancellor, and bishop of Norwich; it remained in the family until 1662."
