Goins Family

Our advertisers help pay the expenses of this site. Please patronize them.

There are a number of variations of the spelling of Goins in the various Goins families including Goin, Guynet, Guynay, Guinnet, Goings, Goinza, Gomez, Gomes, Geaween and many more..

The name Goins has both French and Irish roots. The French line is found first in the Bourbonnais. The Irish name Goins is thought to be derived from the Germanic Goings.

Most of the Goins settlers in the United States came from England or Wales. The earliest documented Goins is William Goin who was born in 1729 in Bedford County, Virginia. Our line of descendants from William Goin may be seen here. We have additional Goins relatives that go back to 1615. We will be able to document these soon.

Our closest Goins relative is Elvina Goins who married Edmond Howard.

Of special note is the Lumbee Indian line of Goynes and Goins that participated in the fight for Texas Independence together with Chief Bowles of the Cherokee Indians.

Another point of interest is the fact that a portion of the Goins family is also included in the Melungeon group of people that originated in the Appalachian portion of the United States. This group also lived in portions of Hawkins and Hancock Counties, Tennessee. This is the same area that much of the Ellis family settled in.
