Early Origins of the Kinnamont family
The surname Kinnamont was first found in Fife, where they were a Clan seated from ancient times at two seats in that county, one at Kinnimonth in Monimail, and the other at Pittscottie. The clan also branched to what is now Kinmouth in Banff, and to Kinmont in Annandale, whence they became associated with the Armstrongs of the Debateable Land. In 1189, King William the Lion of Scotland confirmed the grant of lands on Odo the great Marshall, a descendant of Bishop Odo, the great Norman noble who attended Duke William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings. Odo became known as Odo of Kinninmonth, hence the first bearer of the surname. His brother Matthew, was Bishop of Aberdeen from 1172 to 1199.
