It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Kunder are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Kunder include Kinder, Kynder, Chinder, Chendre, Kender, Kyender and others.

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Kunder, or a variant listed above: Bastian Kender who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1752; Anna Eva Kendar who settled in Charles Town [Charleston], South Carolina in 1763; Caspar and George Kinder settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1738.
