Some Family Updates, Wow is all I can say.

THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY
Our name originates from the Welsh name, Einws.
Vortigern was King of the Brittons at the time of the Roman
occupation of Britton. He married Sevira Serena, daughter of
Magmus Maximus, Roman governor of Britton and granddaughter
of Holy Roman Emperor, Constantine the Great. Together they had
a son named Catigern.
Brochwel Yschithrog, King of Powys, the central part of Wales,
AD 607 was the direct descendant of Catigern. Brochwel's direct
descendant, Einion had a son, also named Einion, but after Welsh
custom he was familiarly called by the diminutive Einws,
pronounced Eins. Einws had a son named John, know as John
Einws, which was sometimes written as Eines or Eynes. John
Eines lived in Bawsley, a town in the parish of Alderbury, which
was partly in Shropshire and partly in Montgomeryshire. From him
descended a flourishing family using the name Heynes, and later
Haynes, that spread over Shropshire and Montgomeryshire.
A member of this family, Richard Heynes relocated Charlebury,
Oxfordshire and eventually to Reading, Berkshire. He had four
sons including Nicholas Haynes of Hackney, Middlesex. Nicholas
was appointed a Yeoman of the Guard to Queen Elizabeth I and
the Coat of arms on the cover was confirmed to him by Queen
Elizabeth I on June 10, 1578.
John Haynes of Messing, Essex, a hot bed of Puritan activity, was
the grandson of Nicholas Haynes. At the request of John
Winthrope, the governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony John
Haynes immigrated to America in 1633. He became the 5th
Governor of that colony and later went on to help found the colony
of Connecticut and become its first governor.
THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY
Richard Haines of Aynhoe, Northamptonshire was the grandson of
John Haynes and his first wife Mary Thorton (direct descendent of
Edward III). He and his wife Margaret Leeds were the immediate
progenitors of the branch of the Haines family known as the New
Jersey branch.
Before leaving England, Richard Haines purchased two grants of
land, each of one hundred acres in the new colony of West Jersey,
which at the time was still a wilderness inhabited by Native
American tribes. The family was coming to America to join their
eldest son John who had left for the new colony of West Jersey in
1680. The girl he loved had left the year before separating the
young couple and John had tearfully promised to follow. John
spent the first winter in a cave along the Rancocas creek. And the
following year built a house below Lumberton. Richard and his
family, including wife Margaret, children Richard, William,
Thomas and Mary set sail from the port of Downs on board the
ship “Amity”. In those days the voyage could take up to three
months, and conditions on board the ship were crude and
unhealthy. As fate would have it soon after leaving port the ship
was hit by a large storm and thrown off course. As the weeks
passed provisions began to run low and the captain ordered that
food and water be rationed, with women and children receiving
first priority. Richard slowly began to weaken and grow sick and
eventually took to his bed. With his family gathered around him
Richard Haines died on April 23, 1682, and was buried at sea. The
loss of one family member was balanced by the birth at sea of
another and just days after Richard’s passing his son Joseph Haines
was born.
The Haines family landed in Burlington, New Jersey in the fall of
1682. The six children of Richard Haines were John, Richard,
William, Thomas, Mary and Joseph. Together they were among
the first settlers of the new colony of West Jersey. They died
owning large tracts of land in Burlington County and elsewhere
and left to their decedents an enduring legacy of faith and courage.
Charles Bozarth Haines was the 7th generation great grandson of
Richard Haines.THE ORIGINS OF THE HAINES FAMILY

So when the October Speaker talked about the Royalty of Europe, we are descendants of them.
More ways than one, is so amazing because this is on Mom's side of family and we already do this on Dad's side of family.  This above write up was sent by cousin. The bottom is my research which overlaps a few generations.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
