Origins Available: English, German


The ancestors of the Heinen surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Heinen 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 Heinen may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

Heinen Early Origins



The surname Heinen was first found in Sussex, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
