Kimmins Family History

This very interesting Scottish surname is probably Norman-Breton in origin. It was introduced initially into England, by the followers of William the Conqueror at or after the battle of Hastings in 1066. The derivation is from either a pre 7th century personal name, originally 'Cumine' or 'Comyn', and thought to derive from the Breton-Celtic element 'can', meaning bent or crooked, and a common element in such surnames as Campbell and Cameron, or from the French town of Comines. In Scotland, the family founded by William Comyn (see below), grew to be one of the most powerful in he country.
