Ames Genealogy & History

Ames is an ancient English name derived from the Old French given name/nickname Amis/Ami, meaning friend, with spelling variations of Amies, Amiss, Amos, Eames, Emmes, Haymes, and Hames. Ames family history dates back to the time of the Norman Conquest, when the family was granted lands by William the Conqueror in Northumberland. The Ames family motto of fama candida rosa ducior means fame is sweeter than the white rose; the crest and coat of arms contain silver roses symbolizing hope and peace. American Ames genealogy dates to the 1630s in Massachusetts and Virginia and includes Joseph Ames, president of Johns Hopkins University.
