Dinnes is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Dinnes 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.

Dinnes Early Origins



The surname Dinnes 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.

Dinnes Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Dyne, Dine, Dives, Dynne, Dinne, Dyves, Dyon and others.
