Kinman Family from Kensington, Middlesex

Kinman Families Outline tree DNA results Photo index

John KINMAN was born in 1795 in St Sepulchre, London. He lived mainly in the Kensington area of London and was a paper stainer. Much of the information reproduced here has been kindly donated by some of his descendants. His baptism appears on the IGI, his father (Thomas) has now been tentatively linked as a descendant of Richard Kinman alias Hoges, born about 1640, a saddle tree maker living in Holborn.

It was thought that this profession provides a clue which may link this Kinman tree to others, however, in addition to the profession it has now been found that there was a substantial family of Kinman also known as Hodges in Cow Honeybourne in Worcestershire, contemporary with this Richard in London.

The will of Henry Kinman als Hodges, written in 1630, names one of his sons as Ricahrd and largely disinherits him in favour of another son who lived locally. There are no further records for that Richard in Cow Honeybourne and he is thought to have moved to the big city, perhaps against his father's wishes - hence the derisory bequest of 12 pence to him in his father's will.

This section contains records on 204 individuals, cross referenced to 45 sources, there are 8 links to images.
