The name Herrine finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a person who made a living by catching or selling herring. Early examples of the surname Herrine come from the Old French word hareng, while later examples come from the Old English word hering, which was originally derived from the Old English words hæring and hering; these words all mean herring. Occupational names such as Herrine frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames.

Herrine Early Origins



The surname Herrine was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Herrine has been recorded under many different variations, including Herring, Herrin, Hering and others.
