Categories: Kinsman Name Study


This is part of a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the Kinsman surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

This section of the Kinsman Name Study is intended for all the bearers of the surname Kinsman who descend from the families of Kinsman originating with Bryant Kingsman born in the mid 1600s, and living in Rushall, Wiltshire in the 1670s . No records of his birth have yet been found. There is an evident name change to Kinsman with his grandson Thomas born in 1693 in Idmiston, and similarly on the "Bryant" side of the family which Kinsman line has not been traced to the modern era.

The most recent records found in this direct line are for the family of Levi Albert Kinsman, born 1863 in Islington, London, who was a Managing Silversmith according to the 1911 census. He married his cousin, Mary Custance, in 1888 and they had five daughters and two sons.

I would be very interested to hear from anyone else who is researching this line, and most especially from any descendants of John or Frank Kinsman (the sons of Levi and Mary) who might be willing to join in the DNA study to confirm or deny whether this family is related to the Kingsman family of Overton, Wiltshire which has been researched back to the early 1500s.

There is a y-DNA project dedicated to the Kinsman surname, details of which can be found on the Kin(g)(s)man Family website. There are currently no y-DNA donors in this Wiltshire Kinsman line.
