HAINE.  The surname is not a common one, and we have borrowed the apostrophe, as in Haine's, to distinguish this from the separate surname Haines.  The Haine's had farmed at East Pennard for generations.  Two influences crept in with the arrival of the nineteenth century: Methodism, and the whiff of better farming opportunities in North America.

You can read about Stephen and Mary Symes by following this link.  James Haine died in 1833 at East Pennard.  Four weeks later, the youngest child married in the parish church and set sail for her groom's native township, Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.  Elizabeth and William followed the Symes couple to Ohio over the next two years.  This left just George to manage the family farm.
