Banks Genealogy & History

Banks is an English or Scottish locational surname, derived from Middle English "banke" (from Old Danish "banke"), meaning "hillside or riverbank". What appears to be a plural form (the "s") does not indicate patronymism (son of Bank); instead it is the Old English version of "'s" indicating "of the bank". Banks family history originated in Yorkshire in eastern England where they held a family seat (the principal manor of a medieval lord) from the 1200s, and in America in Virginia from 1620. However, since all countries have riverbanks and hillsides, the name came into use independently throughout England/Scotland. Banks genealogy includes variant spellings of Banck, Banckes, Banke, Banker.
