Is anyone related to the Charles Francis William Payne side??
My last name comes from my fathers father who was welsh. Is that a different lineage of paynes? I wanted to get my family crest or coat of arms tattoo but i dont want to get the wrong o.e for obvious reasons. Can anyone help? Is there a difference? Ive seen two so far
I'm another Payne family member
I'm from the Caribbean. St. Vincent and the Grenadines to be exact, which is just West of Barbados. I've found my name in the history books from the caribbean and it related to the topics of slavery. theres also Clement Payne, from Trinidad who had a major role in the Caribbean Trade Union movement. I'm catholic and i read that most members of the Payne family are catholic. coincidence maybe? But i'm glad to know we are everywhere. :)

Kathrine Payne Nygaard
Hei! I am adopted from India - and I now live in Norway. My indian surname Is PAYNE - and im trying to feagure out the indian connection to this name. Sincerely, Kathrine.
my grandfather was william payne from london , he came to New Zealand and changed his spelling to Paine, we do not know why.
good to know that the Payne clan is still loitering about somewhere that isn't the U.K. or canada
I have always had a proud connection with my name. Orgins of the name were never really discussed in the family. My first names spelling adapted over time and regions to be spelled Janice from (Janus) a Greek god...... Completely interested in the roots of my family.
My dad, Garrett Thomas Payne, was born in Ohio in 1948, and his father (long gone by the time I was born) was of English descent, I think. Dad has only gone into detail about his mothers' (a first generation American of Slovak descent) side of the family. Oh well. My sister I were born and raised in North Carolina, so us Payne's have branched out a little from the apparently traditional UK home
You did not explain why this surname is of French origin and where it comes from...Payen, Normandy perhaps? "It derives from the pre 7th century personal name 'Pagen', itself from the word 'paien' [from the Anglo-Norman word? or the french word "paÏen"?] and the earlier Latin 'paganus' (could you please offer a source for this information?) The original meaning was a villager or rustic, and later a heathen!" (Yes, it is well documented that the term "paganus" referred to those living outside the "Christianized cities", but where it the proof that this term is linked to the surname Payne?) "Amongst the earliest recordings of colonists in the New World is that of Susanna Pain, the daughter of Robert and Elisabeth Pain. She was baptised in the parish of St. Michael's, Barbados, on August 5th 1678." Actually, my ancestors were already in Virginia in 1623. Please, I would like to know your sources for the information contained here.
Jeremy, I can assure you that not all Paynes are Catholic, not these ones anyway
