Where did the Scottish Kinlaw family come from? What is the Scottish Kinlaw family crest and coat of arms? When did the Kinlaw family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Kinlaw family history?

The Kinlaw family saga is rooted in the people of the Pictish Clan of ancient Scotland. The Kinlaw family lived in the barony of Kinloch, which is located at the head of Rossie Loch in the parish of Collessie in Fife. The surname Kinlaw belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Prior to the invention of the printing press in the last hundred years, documents were basically unique. Names were written according to sound, and often appeared differently each time they were recorded. Spelling variations of the name Kinlaw include Kinlock, Kinloch, Kinlocke, Kinglake and others.

First found in Fife, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The freedom of the North American colonies was enticing, and many Scots left to make the great crossing. It was a long and hard journey, but its reward was a place where there was more land than people and tolerance was far easier to come by. Many of these people came together to fight for a new nation in the American War of Independence, while others remained loyal to the old order as United Empire Loyalists. The ancestors of Scots in North America have recovered much of this heritage in the 20th century through Clan societies and other such organizations. A search of immigration and passenger lists revealed many important and early immigrants to North America bearing the name of Kinlaw: Patrick Kinloch, who came to Boston in 1687; Alexander Kinloch, who settled in Carolina in 1703; Cleland Kinloch, who came to South Carolina in 1799; James Kinloch, who settled in South Carolina in 1703.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Non degener
Motto Translation: Not degenerated
