Meaning & History

It was first found in Warwickshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Kineton.

Conjecturally they are descended from a Norman noble who occupied this manor at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book, a survey of England initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066 A.D. This Norman held his land from the King, and the estates were originally called Quintone, a market village.
