Spinie is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Spinie family lived in Warwickshire. Their name, however, is a reference to Epineville, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Spinie family


The surname Spinie was first found in Warwickshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The Spineys were originally of Spine Villa or Epineville of Scine in Inf in the arrondisement of Yvetot, and held lands in Feltwell in Norfolk and Cloughton in Warwickshire.

Spinie Spelling Variations


Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Spiney, Spinney, Spine, Spines and others.

Migration of the Spinie family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Spinie or a variant listed above: C. Spinney who arrived in New York in 1823; J. Spinney arrived in San Francisco in 1850; Thomas Spines settled in New England in 1767.
