KIMM Family History

This interesting and unusual surname is a variant of Kyme, which is of Anglo-Saxon origin and is locational from two places so called in Lincolnshire. The placenames are derived from the Old English "cumb", a vessel, tub, and denoting a depression in the ground. Locational surnames were developed when former inhabitants of a place moved to another area, usually to seek work, and were best identified by the name of their bithplace. The placenames were first recorded as "Chime" and "Northchime" in the Domesday Book of 1086; the modern placenames are known as North Kyme and South Kyme.
