Kelynd History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Kelynd is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the now-lost settlement of Kelland Barton in the county of Devon. The surname Kelynd belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Kelynd family


The surname Kelynd was first found in Devon where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Painsford in Asprington, some say before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066 A.D. Professor Seary of Newfoundland suggests that there was also a Kelland Barton in Devon but he has been unable to find it. This may have been a family tradition.

Migration of the Kelynd family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Kelynds to arrive in North America: Michael Kelan settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1848; Charles Kellen also settled in Boston Massachusetts the same year; Teresa Kellen settled in San Francisco Cal. in 1852. In Newfoundland, Canada, Mary Kelland settled at Scilly Cove in 1792.
