Mayney Early Origins



The surname Mayney was first found in Masny in Hainaut, France where Walter De Manny, 1st Baron Manny, KG (1310–1372), voyaged to England as a soldier of fortune and esquire of Queen Philippa in 1327. He settled in the London area founding Charterhouse and took part in the Scottish wars of King Edward III, eventually rising to be in command of the English fleet. He was later captured and thrown into prison at Saint-Jean-d'Angély but was able to escape. Upon his eventual return to England, he founded Charterhouse in London in 1349. His daughter Anne Hastings, Countess of Pembroke and 2nd Baroness Manny (1355–1384) succeeded him in 1375 and shortly before her death, she was invested as a Lady of the Garter.

Mayney Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Mayney, Maney, Many, Mainey, Mainy, Manie, Maynie, Mainie, Mainy, Meny, Meyney, Meney and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Mayney or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
