Origins Available: English, German, Irish


The origins of the Heine name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Heine belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The surname Heine may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Heine family emigrate to North America:
