Origins of surname

The name is from the old English cyning, from which our word king is derived. It would not have been given to someone who was actually a king - they had their own family names - but it was used to denote someone who conducted himself in a kingly manner or perhaps who had played the part of a king in a medieval pageant.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey records towards the end of the 17th century, and several different families of the name appear to have become established during the 18th century.
