Today's Irish surnames are underpinned by a multitude of rich histories. The name Kincheloe originally appeared in Gaelic as Cinnsealach. This surname is derived from the Clan name Ui Ceinnsealaigh.

Kincheloe Early Origins



The surname Kincheloe was first found in County Wexford (Irish: Loch Garman), founded by Vikings as Waesfjord, and located in Southeastern Ireland, in the province of Leinster, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Kincheloe Spelling Variations



The recording of names in Ireland during the Middle Ages was an inconsistent endeavor at best. Since the general population did not know how to read or write, they could only specify how their names should be recorded orally. Research into the name Kincheloe revealed spelling variations, including Kinsella, Kinsellagh, Kincheloe,Kenselloe, Kinsello and many more.

The Great Migration



Death and immigration greatly reduced Ireland's population in the 19th century. For the native Irish people poverty, hunger, and racial prejudice was common. Therefore, thousands left their homeland to seek opportunity in North Ameri ca. Those who survived the journey and the quarantine camps to which they arrived, were instrumental towards building the strong developing nations of the United States and the future Canada. By far, the largest influx of Irish settlers occurred with Great Potato Famine during the late 1840s. These were employed as construction or factory workers. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Kincheloe: Michael Kinsella, who settled in Philadelphia in 1860; and John Alexander Kinsella who settled there in 1846.
