McKinvon Early Origins



The surname McKinvon was first found in Kintyre, where they held a family seat in this wild and romantic highland territory. Their territories were first located on the west side of the peninsula of Kintyre and the surname was mistakenly believed to a form of MacKinnon. Their name was derived from the Gaelic MacIonmhuinn or AcIonmhuinn in Kintyre which means "beloved son." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Religious allegiances were important in this terrain and it became the domain of persecuted Covenanters. The Hebridean Islands were also a refuge from Government intrusion.
