My name is Robert Vines, a farmer from Gloucestershire in the South/West of England.

The Vines family name seems to be particularly prevalent in the counties of Gloucestershire and the neighbouring Wiltshire.

Research seems to suggest that the family started out in France, possibly Hugenots and came to England to avoid persecution in mediaeval times.

We have a little knowledge about our Vines ancestors from Gloucestershire and Wiltshire who moved to Australia several hundred years ago, but very little information about those who may have gone to America.

However, an early link is Richard Vines who landed in the States before even the Pilgrim Fathers and proved to be an intrepid pioneer, settling first in Maine and later in Barbados.

A later Vines was Henry Ellsworth Vines who was the Wimbledon tennis champion in 1932.

If anyone has any information about their Vines ancestors in England, or how and when they arrived in another country anywhere in the world, it would be fascinating to hear from you on my email address or the Vines surname message board.

I am just starting my Vines line (Alabama USA
I have been searching my family tree for
near 6 years and just found out yesterday
that Lucinda Vines was a ggg Grandmother.
Native American is in my tree somewhere and
I haven't been able to trace it. However,
I am blonde and green eyes very Irish.
I will be happy to find out about her, how
ever, the women are alway hard to trace. I
don't have her birthday yet, but probably
the late 1700's. Have a Happy New Year

I noticed with interest Robert Vines' posting of November 24, 1899. My great grandmother was a Vines and I have been undertaking a one name study of this name for many years.

I am descended from the Wiltshire branch of the family, ie David Vines (b Brinkworth, Wiltshire 1760, d Reading, Berks 1830). His son Joshua, emigrated to Australia in 1855. His son Caleb (1840-1918) was my grandfather's grandfather.

I am keen to exchange information with other researchers. I have a large data base of Australian Vines and will gladly check that for anyone interested.

According to family legend, David Vines was decsended from the Rev Richard Vines, of Leicester. Does anyone know something of this gentleman and his descendants?

Rev.Richard Vines(1600?-1656)

Richard Vines was a puritan divine, born at Blaston, Leicestershire about 1600.He was educated at Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A., 1622 and M.A., 1627. He was an excellent Greek scholar. About 1624 he became schoolmaster at Hinckley, Leicestershire where John Cleveland, the Cavalier poet, was among his scholars, and owed much to his training. On the death of John Cranford(1627) he was presented to the rectory of Weddington, Warwickshire and instituted on March 11th 1627 or 1628. In 1630 he was instituted to the neighbouring rectory of Caldecote, and held both livings.
In 1642 he was presented for Warwickshire as one of the 'orthodox divines' to be consulted by parliament 'touching the reformation of church, government and liturgie'.He preached a sermon before the House of Commons(30 Nov. 1642) which made a great impression. Owing to the disturbed state of his county- due to the Civil War- he took refuge in Coventry in 1643, with other puritans, and took part in the daily lecture there.In the summer of 1643 he arrived in London, and was placed in the rectoty of St. Clement Dane, where Robert Devereux,third Earl of Essex was his parishioner.
On the 18th March 1644, he was made against his wishes, master of Pembroke Hall, Cambridge
He was placed on the parliamentary 'committee of accommodation' in 1644 and chosen chairman of the acting sub-committee on September 20th.
He was presented with the rectory of Watton, Hertfordshire by the Earl of Essex, when he resigned St. Clement Dane.
He was one of the divines who took part in the written discussion on episcopacy in 1648 in the Isle of Wight, which intended to influence King Charles the First, the king showed that he thought highly of Vines.
On the morning of the execution of King Charles, he was one of the puritan divines who proffered religious services to the King.
Refusing the engagement of 1649 of allegiance to the existing government 'without a king or House of Lords 'he was ejected from the mastership of Pembroke Hall and the living at Watton.The parishioners of St. Lawrence Jewry immediately called him to be their minister.
He died on February 4th 1656.

Dear Jennifer,

In reply to your message, I can see no link at present, but this does not mean there isn't one.
I remember from way back there was mention of a connection with South Africa, but I don't know any more than that.
The Canary Islands, I have never heard of any mention. Although a Vines was once in the Azores. This connection is through Fred Vines, he may be able to help more.
Monmouthshire connection? It is possible there may be a link here, as one of my great grandfathers brothers supposedly moved to this area, but more than that I cannot say.
Sorry I can't help more, but I will keep an eye on the message boards as more information arrives from different people.

Robert E.Vines,
I cannot find a direct connection with the Vines family of Brinkworth, but I think there is a possibility that a link does exist.
I only live about 35 miles from Brinkworth and my family has been in this area for at least 300 years.
Many people leaving messages seem to have a connection to Brinkworth especially tracing back to Edward Vines marrying Ann Henly.
There is quite a few of this line in Australia.
