Origins Available: English, French


The name Colinet was spawned by the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture that ruled a majority of Britain. It comes from the personal name Col, which is a diminutive of the personal name Nicholas. This surname features a "double diminutive" formed by the suffixes -in and -et. The name Nicholas was popular in the Middle Ages, due to the popularity of St. Nicholas, a 4th century Lycian bishop. In some cases, the surname Colinet may have been imported from France.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Colinets to arrive on North American shores:
