An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016

It comes from in the barony of Kinloch, which is located at the head of Rossie Loch in the parish of Collessie in Fife. The surname Kinloch belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Kinloch Early Origins

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



Many Scots left their country to travel to the North American colonies in search of the freedom they could not find at home. Of those who survived the difficult voyage, many found the freedom they so desired. There they could choose their own beliefs and allegiances. Some became United Empire Loyalists and others fought in the American War of Independence. The Clan societies and highland games that have sprung up in the last century have allowed many of these disparate Scots to recover their collective national identity. A search of immigration and passenger ship lists revealed many early settlers bearing the Kinloch name:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Non degener
Motto Translation: Not degenerated
