The inspiration behind putting this section together was Elizabeth How who contacted me in 2013 about her aunt Mellory Maud Kinsman. Her help has been fundamental in identifying the family groups that we have so far. As of now (April 2013) we have positively identified four emigrant families from England, there may be others. We would like to identify from where all these South African Kinsmans and Kingsmans came.
There is also an interesting emigration from South Africa to Australia with what is I think a unique surname modification. Eric Kingma was born about the turn of the last century in the Netherlands, he emigrated to South Africa and his children changed their surname from the Dutch Kingma to an Anglicised Kingman. His grandson, Gregory Kingma/Kingman then settled in Australia with his wife Janet.
There are still as many unidentified links as there are identified individuals, so if you recognise anyone in these fragments please do let us know.
If there are any male Kin(gs)mans in South Africa who would like to join in our DNA study they would be most welcome. Please contact me if you'd like to join in.
A lot of the work on putting the separate trees together as shown here has been done by others. All comments, corrections and contributions are welcome.
These pages link to records of 323 descendant individuals in the South African branches of the families and to their ancestral Kin(g)(s)man lines where known. Records on 121 of these people have been found or donated, but their relationships to the other trees remains uncertain, there are 7 links to images connected to these currently unrelated members of the families, with information being drawn from 18 sources.
