Haynes is a small village, civil parish and former manor, located in Bedfordshire, England, about seven miles (11 km) south of Bedford. It includes the small hamlet of Haynes Church End. It used to be known as Hawnes.[2] North from Haynes is a hamlet named Silver End, then further up is Herrings Green, Cotton End and Shortstown.

The name 'Haynes' is derived from an Old English word meaning "enclosures". It was mentioned in Domesday Book. There is a pub, "The Greyhound", a shop, a post office, a village hall and a Lower School.

In 1730 the philosopher John Gay became Vicar of Wilshamstead (later adding the living of Haynes).

Manor[edit]

The manor was acquired in about 1667 by Vice Admiral Sir George Carteret, 1st Baronet (c.1610-1680) of Jersey[3][4]
