VINES Family History

This interesting name is a medieval topographical or occupational surname. If the former, it denotes someone who lived near a vineyard, or a prominent vine, and if the latter, the name referred to a vine-dresser, a worker at a vineyard. In either case the derivation of the name is from the old French word "vigne", from the Latin "vinea", which became "vine" in middle English. Vine-growing was of some importance in medieval England, and there are still places named "Vineyards" in Essex and Cambridgeshire, which may be partial sources for the modern surname.
