The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Kingmand family have grown. The name Kingmand was given to a member of the family who was a person who was of a kingly nature or appearance. The surname Kingmand originally derived from the Old English Cyng which referred to one with noble features or characteristics of a King. The surname Kingmand also referred to an actor who played the role of a king in pageants or plays. He may have also played the role of King of Misrule in a tournament. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Kingmand Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Kingmand family name include Kingsman, Kingman, Kyngesman, Kingmen, Kingsmen and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Kingmand surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Robert Kingsman, who sailed to New England in 1633; Henry and Joane Kingman, who came to Massachusetts in 1635 with five children, Lee Kingman, who arrived in Virginia in 1650.
