The VANSes OF BARNBARROCH descend from the Norman family of de Vallibus or de Vaux, which held lands in Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex at the time of the Domesday Book 1086.
One of the family came to Scotland in the time of King David I. Family of Vallibu or Vans were proprietors of the lands and barony of Dirleton, in East Lothian. Joannes de Vallibus, Dominus de Dirleton, gave in pure and perpetual alms to the Episcopal See in Glasgow, "decem marcas de firmis terrae suae de Golyn," dated "apud" Edinburgh April 18, 1249, which is ratified by King Alexander, III, June 4, twenty-ninth year of his reign, etc.

    Robert Vans Agnew's correct surname was AGNEW, his father having assumed the name of AGNEW at his marriage. Robert christened all his children Vans (ref the family bible in which he recorded this action and which is in my possession). I believe that his children did the same but that all future generations called themselves by the surname VANS AGNEW until my father, Patrick Alexander Vans of Barnbarroch returned to the name VANS in 1965.
