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


Today's generation of the Kinlock family inherits a name that was first used by the Scottish tribe known as the Picts. The first family to use the name Kinlock lived in the barony of Kinloch, which is located at the head of Rossie Loch in the parish of Collessie in Fife. The surname Kinlock belongs to the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Kinlock Early Origins



The surname Kinlock was first found in Fife, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Many Scottish families suffered enormous hardships and were compelled to leave their country of birth. They traveled to Ireland and Australia, but mostly to the colonies of North America, where many found the freedom and opportunity they sought. It was not without a fight, though, as many were forced to stand up and defend their freedom in the American War of Independence. The ancestors of these Scots abroad have rediscovered their heritage in the last century through the Clan societies and other organizations that have sprung up across North Ameri ca.

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
