The origins of the Kynmerley name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Kynmerley was originally derived from a family having lived in the parish of Kimberley located in the counties of Norfolk and Nottinghamshire.
The surname Kynmerley was first found in Nottinghamshire, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest.
Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Kynmerley include Kimberly, Kimberley, Kynmerley, imberle, Kymberly and many more.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Thomas Kimberley, who sailed to New England in 1635. Edward Kimberly sailed to Australia with the First Fleet in 1788 and D. Kimberly journeyed to San Francisco in 1853..
