Origins Available: English, German


The ancient Normans that arrived in England following the Conquest of 1066 are the initial ancestors from which the many generations of the June family have grown. The name June was given to a member of the family who was a young or youthful person deriving from the Old French word jeune, which means young. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

June Early Origins



The surname June was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as a very distinguished family in that county. The family are believed to be descended from an ancient, prominent Norman family who either accompanied Duke William of Normandy at Hastings or arrived soon after and settled in this shire. The name is believed to have been Le Jeune (the young) and the first mention of the name in tax rolls was Matilda Jun in 1273 in Cambridge.

June Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. June has been recorded under many different variations, including June, Jung, Junge, Jevene, Le Jevene, Le Juen and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Junes were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
