The Vines Surname Project
The objective is to aid testing of family historians hypotheses about Vines, Vine, Viner (Vyner) and Viney surname relationships where family branches diverged geographically by migration from their European origins. It may provide evidence to allow bypass of genealogy problems caused by lack of documentary records and may also test conjecture by language experts on a common origin of these names.The distribution of Vines, Viner and Viney names in the 1881 England census seemed to be spread over the SW counties (eg Wiltshire and Gloucestershire) and might well be connected, but the Vine name was distributed very strongly all along the south coast counties only and might have a different origin.
