MINES Family HistoryRecorded in many forms including Manass, Maynas, Maynuss, Mannis, Manus, Mannice, Meenes, Mines, Minis, Minnis, and Munnis, this surname has both Scottish and Irish origins. It derives from the pre 10th century Old Gaelic "MacNaois", a patronymic form of the male name 'Aonghus', the modern Angus, and meaning "enterprise". This ancient name was borne by an 8th century Pictish king, who gave his name to the county of Angus in Scotland. Early examples of the surname recordings taken from early surviving rolls and charters of the medieval period include: John Dow MacNeische who witnessed a charter at Grantully in 1494, and Jonete Macknes, who was a tenant in Drumgy, Menteith, in 1495.
