About us

Welcome to The Joines/Joynes/Jines DNA Project. The name Joynes/Joines is believed to have originated in Western England or Wales. The first record of a Joines in America was John Joines who Came to the Eastern Shore of Virginia in 1638. Edmund Joynes lived on the Eastern Shore in the late 1600's and early 1700's. Some of his descendants still live there. Ezekiel Joines settled in Northwest North Carolina about 1778. Documents have been discovered that indicate Ezekiel came from Delaware or the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Jabez Joines lived in Georgia in the late 1700's. Family names in Georgia lead us to believe there might be a connection with Ezekiel's family. Noah and Joseph Joines settled in Kentucky. Some descendants of this family use the name Jines. Records indicate they came from Georgia. Thomas Joines settled in Tennessee records indicate he came from Maryland. Other Joines Families settled in Tennessee and we don't know where they may have come from. There is a large Joines Family in Texas. There are Joines/Joynes/Jines families all over America. There are Joines/Joynes Families in New Zealand and Australia. There are families in England that use the name Joineson/Joyneson. Are we related? Let's find out.
