I'm descended from Sir Frederick Haines.
This is an exert from Wikipedia.
In 1880, Haines was offered a baronetcy for services to HM Government in India. He declined the honour due to his wife's failing health, presuming that it would be re-offered to him after her recovery. However, her health declined and she eventually died; the offer of the baronetcy was never renewed.

Father's side of the family have been in London since at least 1800ish, probably before then.
Mother is from Amsterdam and her father was a farmer in Friesland which probably means they were there for at least 1000 years really.
