As far as I can tell all Haineses I'm familiar with originated in England and came across in the 17th Century. There are at least four bunches in these early years. There was a Richard Haines who came from Devon, England, and became a substantial estate owner in Virginia, or South Carolina. Another Richard Haines, as already noted, led a party of Quakers to, or actually toward Burlington Co., New Jersey. He himself didn't survive the voyage. There was also a Rev. Samuel Haines who established a bit of a dynasty in New Hampshire. Finally, closer to my own roots, Richard and William Haines made it to Salem, Massachusetts in maybe 1634 or so. They were from Bedfordshire (near London) England. My own ancester, James Haines, was a cooper who arrived in Salem in 1637. There is some possibility, but thin evidence, that he was related to Richard and William. James Haines moved to Southold, New York, on eastern Long Island in about 1650, and died soon thereafter.

There's also the possibility that your own Haineses came much later, but most likely from England. It's an English name, for sure. Also, there are connections with the rather larger Haynes clan.

My Haynes were from NY and they were Scotch Irish.
John T son of Nicholas, son of David, son of Godfrey.
Either David or Godfrey was a seaman on a British Man of War that wrecked on Hell Gate in the Long Island Sound.
This must have been the HMS Hussar that went down in 1790
Does anyone have any more information on any of these men?

Seems like a very garbled account of Godfret Hans. See:
https://passagetothepast.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/hainesa...
And another garbled account:
https://passagetothepast.wordpress.com/tag/hans/
The 'lady whose father was said to be a British lord' he is supposed to have married seems to be a reference to the family of Hackaliah Browne who was said to have been connected to the Viscounts Montague. Also, John Budd's wife, 'Katheren', was also said to have been a daughter of one of the Brownes, Viscount Montague; but timing and a closer study of the contemporaneous family of the viscounts' makes any such connection very unlikely. The statement appears to derive from conclusions assumed from several name's-the-same coincidences. John Budd is also suggested as Godfrey's father-in-law; which is very likely correct. It seems that a legend that John's wife was 'noble' was transferred to their daughter, Anne. Possibly Hackaliah was a distant cousin of the viscounts', but the relationship likely dates long before the ennoblement of the pertinent family. The claim simply does not withstand a cursory scrutiny.

That Godfrey's son, Joseph Haines 1st died in 'Nova Scotia' (meaning New Brunswick) is also unlikely and I can make a case that Corporal (not Sergeant) Joseph Haines 2nd may have been confused with his father.

Hi There,

I'm trying to research (and find) any information on my 8x g-grandfather Godfrey Haines.

More specifically, I'm stuck at finding any info BEYOND him. I did find his wife's will - by chance of another descendant of his.

Now I do know that the last name could be Hain Hanse Haynes AND that his first name could be Godfret. I was also told that he could hail from Germany or the Netherlands.

Thanks so much for anything you can provide.
