The prominent surname Goins originated in France, a country which has been a dominant presence in world affairs for centuries.The name Goins emerged in the French province of Bourbonnais, which was occupied by the Romans until the Germanic Frankish tribes overran the region in about the 5th century. In the 9th century, Bourbonnais emerged as a duchy and it was ruled by the powerful Lords of Bourbon, who also reigned over Navarre, and Spain, Naples, and became the royal house of France. In the 12th century, the House of Bourbon became even more powerful when, by marrying with the Bourgoignes, it formed the first Capetian House of the Kings of France. In 1272, Robert de France, who was the Count of Clermont and son of Louis IX, acquired the territory of Bourbonnais through his marriage to Béatrice de Bourgoigne-Bourbon. Their son, Louis I, who was named the Great and was Count of Clermont, was the first Duke of Bourbon. In the early 14th century, Bourbonnais came under the control of Charles IV le Bel. After the Hundred Years' War, the region became a vast princely state which grew to include the county of Forez, Beaujolais and the duchy of Auvergne. In 1531, the duchy fell under Crown rule and in 1532, after the loss of all feudal institutions, Bourbonnais received its first governor.
