The name Wearine came to England with the ancestors of the Wearine family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the Old French personal name Guarin meaning to shelter or protect.

Wearine Early Origins



The surname Wearine was first found in Devon at Waringstown where the family are descended from John Waring who later settled in Ireland temp. James I. It was there he founded another Waringstown, a village in County Armagh. Waring's son, Samuel, brought Flemish weavers to the village, built Huguenot style cottages for them, some of which survive today. The patriarch of the family was Miles Sire de Guerin, who came to England with William the Conqueror in 1066. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Wearine Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Waring, Wareing, Waringe, Wearing and others.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Wearine name or one of its variants: Nathanial Waring and his wife who settled in Maryland in 1699; Richard Waring settled in Barbados in 1654; John Warin settled in New England in 1662; C. M. Waring arrived in Baltimore Maryland in 1823..
