'Dweller by the enclosure.'
A Dictionary of English Surnames by P H Reaney. OUP revised third
edition 1997. 019860092-5.
The family of Heighes in Hampshire took their name
from land in the parish of Binsted, to the east of Alton, well wooded and
extending to the north-west boundary of the ancient forest of Alice
I am grateful to Mrs Reeves of Colwall and John
Heighes of Aylburton in Gloucestershire for passing on all of the
information here about the Heighes family.
In 1200 Peter de Heighes together with his son Alan de Heghes witnessed a charter to Selborne Priory. the descent continues through Lawrence de Hegez (1230 and 1250), John de Heighes (living 1268), Andrew de Heyes (1280 and 1290), Peter de Heighes (1301 - 1319), Simon de Heighes (1362) and Peter de Heighes - 'aged 24 years and more' in 1362.
