Re: Origin of Kinnard

I have been researching the surname Kinnear and have found many variations in spelling - Kinner, Kinnaird, Kinnier, Kineer, etc. The name is from The Kingdom of Fife in Scotland and means headland. Although I have had difficulty researching some names in my family I have found Kinnear very easy as Fife have kept wonderful records, enabling me to search back to 1669. I would love to hear from Kinnears and would gladly exchange information.
