Angevynne History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Angevynne family

The surname Angevynne was first found in Essex and Norfolk where "Osmond and Guy l'Angevin (probably brothers) both appear in Domesday [1]: the former held the manor of Witham in Essex; the latter under the Count de Boulogne in Norfolk. From one or other of these descended William l'Angevin or Angevin, settled at Churchfield in Northamptonshire, who died in 1199, Another William (perhaps his son) in 1250 held, in addition, Waplode in Lincolnshire, and was father of a third William, who left an only child, Margaret, still a minor when her mother died in 1276." [2]

In Norfolk the descendants of Guy l'Angevin, who was Lord of Bereford under Earl Eustace, continued till 1417. His grandson Sir Robert, "wrote himself sometimes de Massingham and sometimes de Thorpe, having lordships in these towns, and held seven fees, with those in Anmere, &c, about the year 1200 of the honour of Bologne." [3]

Angevynne Spelling Variations

Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Angevynne family name include Angevine, Angevin, Angevile, Angeville, Angevynne, Angevyne Angwin, Angwine, Angwyn, Angwyne, Ankerville, Ankervine, Ankwin, Angervine, Angerwin, L'Angerville, Langerville, Langwin, Langwyne, D'Angerville and many more.

Migration of the Angevynne family

To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Angevynne family to immigrate North America: Daniel Angevine, who came to New York, NY in 1710; Lewis Angevine, who settled in New York, NY in 1710; Zachariah Angevine, who arrived in New York, NY in 1710.
