An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The origins of the name Anniss are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the personal name Agnes, which itself is derived from the Greek name Hagne, which means pure and holy. The name was also used in the Latin phrase Agnus Dei, which means lamb of God. The personal name Agnes was popularized by devotees, the early Christian martyr, Saint Agnes.

Anniss Early Origins



The surname Anniss was first found in the English midlands county of Nottinghamshire from very ancient times, where the family name held vast estates and were an important contribution to the early life and times of the county. They are recorded in the Domesday Book as holding lands and manors. The Domesday Book was compiled by Duke William in the year 1086 A.D.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Annisss to arrive in North America:
