YANCEY Family History

Recorded in a number of spellings including Hansie, Jancey, Jansey, Jancy, Jansie, Jencey, Johncey, Johnsey, Johnsee, Joinsey, Joncey, Jonsey, and even Ginsie, Gaunsey, and Yancey, this is probably an English surname, although it could be Dutch or Flemish. Its origins are obscure and unproven, although it has been suggested that it may be the forerunner of the American descriptive word Yankee. However spelt it is almost certainly one of the many patronymics which developed from the ancient Christian name John orJohann.
