Origins of surname

This is an old English and Welsh surname derived from the medieval forename Jenkin, a diminutive of John, and introduced by returning Crusaders from the Holy Land in the 12th century. To this was been added the diminutive suffix "-kin", indicating young John, or perhaps son or relative of John. The addition of "-s" to the surname is a further indication of 'son of'.

Early records

The name has been present in Jersey since the 1660 and William, who married Jeanne Romeril, and had several children baptised in St Lawrence between 1661 and 1689 was possibly a garrison soldier.
