The sad part about all this is, Im an African American with Choctaw indian heritage. Haynes is my last name but I will never know my true history because Africans and Native Americans are not from Ireland. Thats my given slave name... My true name was erased.
Not being a troll, I swear, but to avoid embarrassment in the future, this is an English, not Irish name, Not insulting you, or your problem
My last name is Haines and my family comes from Ireland and none of us are English. Not everyone with the last name Haines no matter the spelling, is English.
Just saying, whilst it may be true that it was a slave name - amongst the African population, surnames didn't become prominent until too late in history to be effective. They mostly used the Habesha naming system in which your surname was your fathers first name. Now, given that Haynes is your 'slave name' as you call it, then on one hand it is devastating your history contains slavery HOWEVER, whichever of your relatives first adopted the name Haynes, would have bee a well respected gentlemen. You should take solace in the knowledge that whilst what was done to him was horrible, he still lived an honourable life that eventually led to you

My maiden name is Haynes and I've always wondered about the origin of it. I heard it was English and there was a connection to Bedfordshire. When my father was 19 years old and in the Army during WWII he was stationed in London and his CO told him to take a truckload of supplies to Bedfordshire. He said he drove right to the location without directions and when he got there he knew where everything was, Post Office, General Store, etc., even though he had never been there before. My mother's maiden name is Ayers and I always heard that they considered themselves to be of Irish descent but when I looked up the surname it is of Scottish or French descent.
Nigel Anthony Haynes
Our family have an interesting twist to the Haynes surname. Tradition dictates that male Haynes members should have the middle name Anthony, and so boys names are all "Malefirstname Anthony Haynes". Apparently this goes way back in our genealogy, so I wonder how widespread it is?
This is interesting. I'm Maurice Michael St. Anthony Haynes . Does that count?
Brandon Anthony Haynes
Me and my dad have the middle name Anthony
I've been doing genealogy research & this site was helpful to pinpoint the area of the UK to search in. Thanks:)
Well I'm an English Haynes, apparently were I live The Midlands, or more precisely the West Midlands In England is where it's most prevalent. it does have a band of counties down the eastern side of the U.K., Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire and Essex. The City of Bristol is another high occurrence area, The area it is most common by percentile (17th most common surname is East Sussex. surprisingly there is also one area of Scotland where is is significantly above the average (249th most common surname in Great Britain), that being Moray. There is a famous clan from Moray (Hay) but There are no links to the surname Haynes
Ive always loved and been so proud of my name. So much so that it was restored as my legal surname after a divorce in 2000. I knew I'd never "give it up" again...thus the hyphenation of my (2nd) married name.
Very interesting info
Fed up of people calling me Hayes. It gets very very old.
Happens to me all the time!
I am also interested in all information pertaining to the haynes
