Concerning Maryland Kinnamons, most of us descend from a fellow named Captain John Kininmont who was captured as a young Scottish ensign in the Battle of Dunbar in 1650. The English apparently sent him to the plantations to serve as an indentured servant in Virginia--just where in Virginia is not yet clear. We do know, however, that he arrived in the Chesapeake Bay region in 1654. He settled in Talbot County, Maryland around 1662 and eventually amassed over 1000 acres of land and had a rather large family. They are well represented in the colonial and state records of Maryland in Talbot, Dorchester, Queen Ann, and Caroline counties.
Lester Bryan Kinnamon's "Kinnamon Family in America" is the book you will want to read. He has a few errors here and there, but overall it is an indispensible work if you're doing Kinnamon family genealogy. He managed to contact almost everyone in the family who were alive in the 60s and 70s and got their story. He also covered all the colonial records then available. You can find an online version of this book, I believe. Good Luck Matt Kinnamont Hayward, CA
