BANE Family HistoryThis interesting surname has a number of possible origins. Firstly, it may be from the Gaelic "ban" meaning white or fair and would have been a nickname for someone with fair hair or a pale complexion. One, Edwin Bayne alias Wuhyte, was recorded in Perth, Scotland in 1623. Secondly, it may derive from the Old English pre 7th Century "ban" meaning bone, which later became "bon" and survived as the nickname "Bones". William Banes, is noted in the Assize Court Rolls of Lancashire (1246). Thirdly, it may be from the Old French "bain" meaning bath and would have originated as an occupational surname for an attendant at the public baths.
