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.
hi where does the surname king originally came from? im confused
Hi I am 12 and I am writing a research paper about my last name and this is really helpful!!
I'm ten and working on a project about my ancestors so this was really helpful!
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.
my surname is king trying to figure out ma roots
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.
does anyone have any information on birth name- Carol king- who was born in ND in 1928 and lived in aberdeen SD at the age of twelve in the 1940's my name, Julie, email@example.com
My great-great grandfather was Louis King (1884-1963). He came to the US around 1900 from Germany. I have no idea who his parents were. Any info would be great. Holly.
This is probably Anglizised from the German König as was the practice with new immigrants to the US at the time.
My great grandfather was James King. He married Edna Ritchie and they had three kids. Linda King Witt, Charles "Ebb" King, and Jim King. I know his mother was either half or full blooded Cherokee Indian but I know next to nothing about the King side. I've been trying to find out more about every side of my family so if anyone can help me that would be awesome! I'm visiting Charleston SC right now and found some Kings in an old Scottish graveyard. Possible relation?
There is a plcae in S.C. called King Mountain, this is as far as I got with my line, they came to Bartow County Ga. in the late 1800's. My GGGF Steven King was married to a full blooded Cherokee Lady (Ratcliff).
This is really weird, Bruce. I have been told my Cherokee heritage genealogy info was taken over by a family by the last name King. My great, great grandmother was a Cherokee princess and I've been trying to find out some info myself as to who this King family is. My GG grandmother married an English Canadian with the last name, King.
My 3rd great grandmother was Koning, a variation of King. I have traced the name to New York in the 1700's. I don't yet know where she fits in. I think her father was Ari Konoing. I think they may be Dutch. Researching is interesting, educational and exciting. Katherine
hi looking for info on king family My great grandma was called Agnes king (c1886) she married Arthur Day they had children called edward, Arthur, stan john Violet margaret. She had a Brother called Bill King Farther of the king brothers (band in the 50,s 60,s) any help would be appreciated.
My Maternal Grandfather was named Henry King. The family knows for fact, that he was born to German parents in Germany, came to the states when he was 14yrs old. There seems to be no mention of the name in German. But as I'm sure you know, people comming to the states often changed their names. So-o I'm probably headed down a dead in street witout more info. good luck to you!
