According to Lester Kinnamon, in his book, "The Kinnamon Family in America" he says this. KININMONT, KININMONTH, KINNINMONTH. Of territorial origin from lands of the name in Fife. There are two Kininmonths in Fife, one in the parish of Monimail, and the other near Pitscottie. Kinmont in Annandale was Kynmund in 1529.Kyninmonthe now Kinmouth is in Banffshire. This is from The Surnames of Scotland their Origin, Meaning and History, by George F. Black. This name has so many spellings, my line came from Maryland as Kininmont, then went to Kinnamon. Some of the Kininmont's that went to North Carolina and Tennesee from Maryland, changed theirs to Kinnaman.
