Hoin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Hoin family
The surname Hoin was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1200 when Walkelin Hone held estates in that shire.
