Kelling History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Kelling is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a person who fished codfish and was accordingly named after the fish. The surname Kelling is derived from the Old English word keling, which means young codfish. Occasionally, the name is derived from residence in the settlement of Keeling in the county of Norfolk.

Early Origins of the Kelling family


The surname Kelling was first found in Worcestershire 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 parish of Kelling in Norfolk was home to another branch of the family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Kelling family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Kelling were among those contributors:
