The surname Ekins was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from very early times.

One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Ekins has appeared include Eakin, Eakins, Ekins, Ekin, Eaking, Heakins and many more.
