The Kenyon One-Name Study

Back to Main Index Page

The surname "Kenyon" appears to have originated from the county of Lancashire in England, particularly the Winwick Parish area where there is a "Village of Kenyon" and a "Kenyon Manor"

Most "Kenyon" family groups around the country emanate from Lancashire and the Manor of Kenyon area as does that of the current "Lord Kenyon" whose family history has been well documented from 1154. Consequently, much of the data about this surname originates in the Lancashire area. However, the name spread worldwide during the late 18th and 19th Centuries, and the data we have gathered reflects this migration.
