Hynard History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Anglo-Saxon name Hynard comes from when the family resided in Intwood, a parish, in the union of Henstead, hundred of Humbleyard, east division of Norfolk. [1] [2]

The place name literally means "dweller at the Inn-Wood [Middle English in, a lodging, dwelling; Old English inn, a house + Middle English mode, Old English wudu, a wood] " [3] [4]

Early Origins of the Hynard family

The surname Hynard was first found in Norfolk but we must look to Somerset to find the first record of the family. For it is there that Adam Inwod, was listed 1 Edward III (during the first year of King Edward III's reign.) [5] Again in Somerset, we found Thomas de Inwode recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of 1327. [4]

The Inward variant proves to be interesting. While the name are related as proven by a late entry of "Sarah Inward, daughter of Richard Inwood, died in 1685. Inward and Inwood have been confused." [4] This variant may have a different origin. First of all, the earliest record was that of Roger de Ynewrde in the Pipe Rolls of Northumberland in 1202 and secondly, this variant may originate in Inworth, Essex which dates back to 1206 when it was known as Inewrth. [6]

How and when the names became interchangeable, we do not know.
