Earnous Early Origins



The surname Earnous was first found in Devon where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Rous. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1147 when William Bernehus held estates in that shire.

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 Earnouss to arrive on North American shores: Mabel Barnhouse, aged 42, who arrived at Ellis Island from Watsonville, Cal., in 1923; and Samuel Dallas Barnhouse, aged 32, who arrived at Ellis Island from Terralta/WV, in 1917..
