ENOS Family History

This very unusual surname would seem to have been first recorded (see below) in the 17th century. As such it is a developed form of an earlier name. Either 'Enos' is of Olde English pre 7th century origins and a dialectal of 'Earn' meaning the 'eagle', or it is again dialectal, but of Olde French origins from the female 'Anes'. The latter was introduced by the Normans after 1066 and like Ann(e) is a development of Agnes, itself of Greek origins and meaning 'pure and chaste'. 'Earn' was a nickname for somebody of bold or courageous disposition, possibly a warrior or messenger, certainly a person of forceful character.
