The origins of the Chenine name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in Cann, a parish in the county of Dorset. The surname Chenine is a palatal form of the surname Canning, of toponymic origin, deriving from the place-name Cann mentioned above. The word palatal is a phonological term. Phonology is the study of sounds used in language. The sounds able to be produced by humans and used in speech are classified into several types: labial, for sounds produced by the lips; dental, for sounds produced by the tongue against the teeth; palatal, for sounds produced by the tongue against the hard palate (found at the roof of the mouth in the front); and uvular, for sounds made at the back of the throat. The translation from the s sound to the sh sound, or the one from c to ch, is known as the palatal translation, for it is accomplished by moving the tongue from the teeth to the hard palate while keeping the tongue in the same form.

Chenine Early Origins



The surname Chenine was first found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



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 Chenine family emigrate to North America: John Channing who settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1712; William Channing and Mrs. Channing settled in Nantucket Mass in 1823; Joseph Channings arrived in New Orleans in 1823..
