Origin of last name

STAINES : English (Essex and Middlesex):: 1: habitational name from Staines (Middlesex) and from Steane (Northamptonshire). Both placenames appear to derive from Old English stān ‘stone rock’ though the development of the vowel and the addition of -(e)s have not been adequately explained. Compare Steen.2: topographic name from Middle English stanes ‘stones’ used either for someone who lived near prominent stones or for someone from a minor locality so named. The reference may be to milestones on the Roman road that ran through the town.3: variant of Steen with post-medieval excrescent -s.
