Hindes History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought many new words to England from which surnames were formed. Hindes was one of these new Norman names. It was specifically tailored to its first bearer, who was a person who was gentle or timid. The name Hindes is derived from the Old and Old English word hind, which refers to a female deer. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Early Origins of the Hindes family


The surname Hindes was first found in Buckinghamshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hindes Spelling Variations


A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Hind, Hinde, Hynd, Hynde, Hynds, Hinds and others.
