Hyneson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Hyneson family
The surname Hyneson was first found in Yorkshire, where we find Henry Hynson, Ellen Hyneson and Thomas Hynson, "ploghwryght," (plough wright) listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. Henry and Thomas were either brothers or father and son, and were the scions of their respective branches of the family name.

As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Hyneson have been found, including Hinson, Hineson, Hindson, Hyneson, Hynson and others.

Migration of the Hyneson family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hynesons to arrive on North American shores: John Hinson, who sailed to St.Christopher in 1635; Thomas Hinson to Virginia in 1670; Joseph Hinson to Philadelphia in 1812; Martin Hinson settled in Mobile, Ala. in 1852 and Andrew Hinson in Arkansas in 1896..
