The name Kellon is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was name for a person who fished codfish and was accordingly named after the fish. The surname Kellon 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.

Kellon Early Origins



The surname Kellon 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]

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become powerful new nations. Among early immigrants of the Kellon surname to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Catherine Keeling settled in Barbados in 1674; Andrew and Mathew Keeling settled in Maryland in 1775; Thomas Keeling settled in Virginia in 1635.
