You can also find my genealogical information, from 2013, on the RootsWeb World Connect Project.

I’m also participating in Family Tree DNA projects. If your surname is Kenyon and you either live in England, or had ancestors, who lived there; you should take the Family Finder Test.

Here are some “Kenyon” facts and links:

  • The Kenyons of Kenyon, a Lancashire township, were lords of Kenyon in the 13th and 14th centuries (B.) The name now has its home in the Blackburn district. (source: 250 HOMES OF FAMILY NAMES).
  • From Kenyon, a township in the parish of Winwick, County Lancaster, the surname Kenyon was derived as early as the middle of the thirteenth century. Since that time the family has flourished in Lancaster, one of its most notable and historic branches being the Kenyons of Peel, to whom many authorities trace the ancestry of the founder of the American family, John Kenyon, who it is claimed was a lineal descendant of Jordan de Lanton, lord of Kenyon, in the reign of Henry III., of England.” (
