About the Project

The Haines Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Haines name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Haines name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Hainesws), by time period (18th Century Haineses), or by topic (Haines DNA, Haines Occupations, Haines Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

The following reference should be a useful genealogy resource to find Haynes ancestors and their descendants:

Walter Haynes, of Sutton, Mandeville, Wiltshire, England and descendants 1583 – 1928 genealogy info for family immigration from England to American Colonies - 300 pages From Univ of Wisconsin (available to public) at following URL:


SUmmary In 1879, Haynes family members David Francis Haynes and Andrew Mack Haines combined efforts to gather documents and records concerning all Haynes ancestors of every clan; they found immigration records from England back to 1583. Records of Haynes families living in the American colonies were also found. The following are the early Haynes immigrants to America. The resource lists family members and other details and can be searched for names and places.

Jonathan Haynes immigrated in 1632 and settled in Newberry, Massachusetts; although he was killed by Indians in 1698, he left numerous descendants.

John Haynes, from Colchester, County Essex, England immigrated in 1633 to the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He became the first governor of Connecticut.

Samuel Haynes came in 1635 from Westbury, County Wilts, England, and is the ancestor of Andrew Mack Haines, the genealogist who developed much of this information. Samuel came on the ship, Angel Gabriel, and later settled in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Walter Haynes came from Sutton, Mandeville, County Wilts, England in 1638. His ancestors researched the Haynes families in America.

Edmund Haynes settled in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1660.

Benjamin Haynes immigrated from England and settled at Southampton, Long Island in 1639.

Richard Haynes came from Northamptonshire, England and settled in Burlington County, New Jersey in 1682.

John Haynes came from Shropshire, England and settled in St. Bartholomew parish, Collerton County, South Carolina in 1700.

Haynes (unknown first name) settled in Virginia about the time of the revolution and fought in the war. No further information.

A family came from Prussia named Heine and change their name to Hayne after settling in America.

Stephen Wesley Haines-2865 is my g-grandfather; I am trying to confirm his parents. Wikitree does not list either of his parents. Family search shows his Parents are Willis Haynes LY6X-M64 (abt 1788-abt 1828) and Elizabeth McPherson KZJ7-N52 ( abt 1790-??). I think this is credible because one of SW Haines children is Nathan MCPHERSON Haines which is a common practice using a mothers maiden name as a middle name for descendants. Willis and wife were residents of Marion Co., South Carolina.

Hi I found another Hanes in family these 2 different families.



Is there a Hanes name Study, I have a Adoption as well here I need help with. His adoption record is on his profile. He’s my stepfather. Do I put him in both Hanes and his birth Name study




I am researching the family of Joseph Haynes (1760 to 1849) in what is now Monroe County West Virginia. He married a Barbara Riffe April 5, 1782 with Rev. john Alderson officiating. This Joseph Haynes research can be accessed by going to Familysearch.org and using the ID LZPH-68B. This Joseph should not be confused with a Joseph Haynes Family Search ID of MY9Q-2GZ. Trying to overcome a brick wall of who his father was. The Issac Haynes and Catherine Diffenbough idea has many conflicting problems that lead me to question this relationship. All ideas with supporting documentation would be appreciated.

Hi, I am a descendant of John Odom, b.1776, d. 1861 in Columbus, GA who married a Rhoda / Rody Haynes, b. Est 1779/80, d. Est 1842. They supposedly lived in Marlboro County, SC for a period of time. Does anyone else have information on Rhoda Haynes and who her parents could have been? Thank you!
