I am trying to trace my roots. My dad was Robert Louis King. His father walked out when dad was 2yrs old so I and dad never knew what became of him. I don't know anything, even his name, about him. My dad's mom's name was Rubina, but I never knew her maiden name. Dad was born, raised, and died in Haywood County, NC, which is near Asheville. Any info would be helpful and appreciated.
my surname is king trying to figure out ma roots
Hey, i'm twelve years old. My last name is King. I have always wanted to learn about my ancestors . I have started to search on ancestry.com when i was about 8 years old. I'm a very curious girl an I will continue to search for my ancesors. My mother's last name is king and her dad's last name was King. And that's as far i have gotten with the king thing. I am very curious but very lazy. Therefore it will take a while for me to know everything that I want to know.
I'm ten and working on a project about my ancestors so this was really helpful!
Hi I am 12 and I am writing a research paper about my last name and this is really helpful!!
hi where does the surname king originally came from? im confused
My name is King, but in the Hungarian way - KIRÁLY.
We are coming from Mesopotamia as Sumerian descendants. As you see Nimrod in the Old Testament, the great-grandson of Noah. Attila the Hun is the nephew of Nimrod. (Nimród is still a common name in the Hungarian language)
BTW we are still using many words from the ancient times, such us the city of 'Ur' Úr (Iraq), it is an ancient city name from the Sumerian times.
I've been able to trace my surname back to Stirlingshire Scotland 1551. My King family line was a sept of the MacGregor's. Thomas King emigrated to Pennsylvania in 1710.
J M King
My family was renamed from Percy to King after the Norman conquest, emigrated to Londonderry, Ireland in 16th century, and settled in Pennsylvania in the 18th century. From there we moved to Missouri and Kansas by the turn of the 20th century. Hope this helps any Irish Kings out there.
This is cool, but my dad's dad who I got my last name from was Pennyslvania Dutch and not English, our original last name was Doopres which later a king saw our family as poor and gave us land, wealth, and changed our last name to king
Not all Kings are European.
Many of the descendants of chiefs of the Chickasaw and Choctaw Native American tribes took the name King after they were Anglicized. One of them was my ancestor. His sons adopted Christianity and took the name King.
In Scottish history, the MacGregor clan had to change their names or be killed...t47 Septs spun off... and the name King was one of them. I recently learned these were my roots.
