The name Heiny is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a keeper of the deer. The surname Heiny originally derived from the Old English word hinde which referred to someone who tended the deer. A quote from Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales underlines the occupation: Ther n'as baillif, ne herde, ne other hine.

Early Origins of the Heiny family


The surname Heiny was first found in Oxfordshire, where one of the first on record was Robert Hine who was Lord of the manor and held estates in that shire in the year 1254. John le Hyne was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 in Oxford, and Robert le Hine was listed in Suffolk in the same rolls. The Writs of Parliament of 1313 show Stephen le Hine.

Heiny Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Heiny include Hines, Hine, Hyne, Hynes and others.

Migration of the Heiny family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Heiny were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Thomas and Anthony Hine settled in Virginia in 1653; James Hines settled in Boston in 1716; Jane Hine settled in New England in 1769; James, Jane, Michael, Patrick and William Hines all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860. In Newfoundland, Philip Hines settled at Holyrood Head in 1801.
