KLINE Family History

This name, with variant spellings Kline, Kleine, Kleyn, Klehn etc., derives from the German or the Dutch "Klein", meaning "small" and was originally given as a nickname to one of slight stature. In some instances, the name may be Ashkenazic from the Hebrew "kleyn" also meaning "small", and regularly appears in such compound names as Kleinhandler, literally "a small trader", and Kleinplatz, (a small place). Klein and its variants is particularly well recorded in London church registers from the early 18th Century, (see below).
