The ancient name of Chimene finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person who lived near or worked at a furnace deriving its origin from the Old French word cheminée.

The surname Chimene was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Chimene family name include Chimney, Chimyne, Chymene, Chymney, Chimnay and others.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Chimene surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Amelia Chymny, who settled in Maryland; and Michael Chymny, who arrived in Maryland in 1910.
