Janeway Early Origins



The surname Janeway was first found in Herefordshire 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 1218 when Gilbert Genewy held estates in that shire.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Janeway were among those contributors:

  • Thomas Janeway, who landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1683

Janeway Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Charles Janeway arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "William Mitchell" in 1840 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
