Kenneson Early Origins



The surname Kenneson was first found in Lothian where they held a family seat on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest of England many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire and Lancashire. The name was first recorded as part of the Gun Clan which settled on the border in 1346 having broken away from the main Clan when Cheiftain Will 'the Crowner' Gunn acquired lands here.
