According to the early recordings of the spellings of the name, this interesting and unique name was listed in many forms such as Kinnar, Kinner, and the more common Kinnear, this is a Scottish surname of early old origin. It is geographical from the place called Kinneir in the division of Fife near the hamlet of Wormit. The place name first noted at the starting of the 13th century as “Kyner,” from the Gaelic word “ceann,” which means head(land) and “iar,” to the west. 

The original family who took the name were servants of the ancestors of St. Andrews and held their estates until the starting of the 18th century. One Petrus Kynior selected as common councilor of Aberdeen in 1477, and John de Kynor was admitted citizens of Aberdeen in 1439. Henry Kinneir of Kinneir was selected as “commendator” of Balmerino Abbey in 1574, and by this time the family had the lucrative monopoly of ferry crossings of the Tay at what is now Newport
