SIMKINS Family History

Recorded in many spellings including Simkin, Simkins, Semkin, Simkiss, and Simpkin, this is an English surname. It derives from the personal name "Simon", itself from a Hebrew word meaning listening, and the diminutive "-kin", meaning close relative, plus sometimes the patronymic short form "s" meaning "son of". The name was introduced into England by returning Crusaders from the Holy Land in the 12th century, and repidly gained popularity. Sometimes an intrusive letter such as "p" or "b" appears in the spelling and these were introduced to make for easier pronunciation.
