Hyndme History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Hyndme is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was taken on by someone who worked as a keeper of the deer. The surname Hyndme 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.

Migration of the Hyndme family
A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: 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.
