Dines is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Dines family lived in Sussex. The name, however, derives from the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, Dives, Normandy.

Dines Early Origins



The surname Dines was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Dines 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 Dines family name include Dyne, Dine, Dives, Dynne, Dinne, Dyves, Dyon and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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 Dines family to immigrate North America:
