Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, Norman French and other languages became incorporated into English throughout the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Kindred include Kinder, Kynder, Chinder, Chendre, Kender, Kyender and others.

First found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Kinder, a small hamlet originally called Chendre before the taking of the Domesday Book census, a survey initiated by Duke William of Normandy in 1086 after his defeat of the English at Hastings in 1066. Kinder is a hamlet near the Kinder Scout, the highest and best known mountain in the Peak District of Derbyshire, and is often called 'The Peak'.

In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Kindreds to arrive on North American shores:
