There are many variations of the Kinnebrew, Kinabrew, or Kenebrue names.
One of the first know in America was William Kinnebrew, who was appointed
appraiser of the estate of John Bittle, September 11, 1760, Southhampton
County, Virginia. Land grant records could possibly show the approximate date
William entered Southhampton County, Virginia and St. Lukes Parish. His wife
was Ann Barrow as shown by the following abstract of Wills. Also the
abstracts will show a great number of names and relationships in the family.

William Kinabrew's estate was appraised by Thomas Barrow, John Barrow
and Martin Middleton was was recorded on 12-22-1740. This William Kinnebrew
may have been the father of William Kinnebrew who married Ann Barrow, one of
the daughters of John Barrow who died 1776-1777. In 1740, ths was still the
county of Isle of Wight. While the familes did not move, the name of that area

When the estate of Thomas Barrow, Sr., of Southampton Co., Was settled
in 1763, we find that Hosea Barrow, on of the orphans of Thomas Barrow, Jr.,
(who died testate in Onslow Co., N. C.) was represented in his grandfather's
estate by Jacob Kinnebrew, presumable the son of Ann Barrow Kinnebrew.
Assuming that Jacob Kinnebrew was at least 21 years of age, to be appointed
guardian to represent the orphan Jacob Barrow's interest about 1763 to 1765
when the Accounts were settled, then we know he was born at least as early as
bout 1740. According to the way he was listed in his father's Will, he was not
the oldest son of Ann Barrow and William Kinnebrew. This information helps us
to establish that Ann Barrow was likely born 20 or more years earlier, or
about 1720.

Ann Barrow, born circa 1720 or perhaps earlier, likely married about
1738. When she made her Will on November 12th, 1776, about 4 years after her
husband died, she named her sons Edwin and Lot Kinnebrew and a grandaughter
Prissy (Pricilla) Kinnebrew. We have not learned whether the other two sons
named Jacob and Shadrach Kinnebrew were deceased by this time. We did note
that her son, Lot, was deceased prior to February 13th, 1777 when his estate
was appraised.

Ann Barrow Kinnebrew named "friend" Benjamin Blunt to serve as her
executor. Her Will was witnessed by Benjamin Blunt and Mary Bittle. Ann died
soon after making her Will which was admitted to probate on January 9th, 1777.
So, we can see that she died about the same time as her son Lot. Also, about
the same time as her father, John Barrow, whose Will was proven on the same
date of January 9th, 1777 with the Inventory of his estate files on March 13th

Records indicate the Jacob Kinnebrew married Edith Kirby in Virginia
before 1772 and that Henry and Priscilla were their oldest children.
Priscilla was named in the Will of her grandmother in 1776, possibly this was
the daughter of Jacob. Henry and Priscilla were named in the Will of Edwin
Kinnebrew in 1780. There is no record of the date of Edith Kirby Kinnebrw's
Edith Kibry was a witness to a Will of Joseph Warren in 1775 in
Southampton County, Virgina. She was a witness to the Will of Benjamin Turner
which was dated 1771 and recorded in 1781. (Southhampton County, Virginia,
Wills by Chapman).
