The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Stannes come from when the family resided in the parish of Staines in the counties of Middlesex and Surrey. The latter appears in the Domesday Book [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
as "Stanes" derived from the Old English word "stan" and meant "place at the stones". [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

One of the first records of the name was Sir William Staine who married into the Yarboroughs of Heslington Hall about the year 1100.

Stannes Early Origins



The surname Stannes was first found in Yorkshire where they may have given their name to a number of places in Yorkshire including several Staintons, Stainland, Stainforth or Stainburn. Staines-upon-Thames, commonly referred to simply as Staines, is a town on the River Thames in the borough of Spelthorne in Surrey (in the historic county of Middlesex.) Early records also revealed Richard of Staines (or Richard de Stanes) (d. 1277), a English clerical judge who acted as an Itinerant Justice, then was appointed justice of the Court of King's Bench in 1209 and finally Lord Chief Justice in 1269.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Stannes or a variant listed above: Ruth Staines who settled in Barbados in 1691; William and Mary Staines settled in Maryland in 1775; Charles Staines settled in North Carolina in 1674.
