Kime Coat of Arms / Kime Family Crest

The surname of KIME was a locational name, of Kyme. South Kyme is a parish in County Lincolnshire eight miles from Tattershall. North Kyme is a township in the same parish. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land, and indicated where he actually lived. Early records of the name mention Lucia de Kyme who was documented in the year 1272 in the County of Yorkshire and Philip de Kyme was recorded in 1273 in County Lincolnshire. Symon de Kyme of County Lincolnshire, appears during the reign of Edward III (1327-1377). A later instance of the name mentions Robert Lloyd who married Elizabeth Kyme in London in 1638. Nightingale Kyme and Elizabeth Pigeon were married at the same church in 1641. Surnames as we recognise them today are believed to have been introduced by the Normans after the Invasion of 1066. The first mention of such names appears in the Domesday Book and they were progressively adopted between the 11th and 15th centuries. It was the nobles and upper classes who first assumed a second name, setting them apart from the common people who continued to use only the single name given to them at birth. It was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that is became common practice to use a secondary name, originally a name reflecting the place of birth, a nickname, an occupational name or a baptismal name which had been passed on from a parent to the child, as an additional means of identification. The name is also spelt KYME. Over the centuries, most people in Europe have accepted their surname as a fact of life, as irrevocable as an act of God. However much the individual may have liked or disliked the surname, they were stuck with it, and people rarely changed them by personal choice. A more common form of variation was in fact involuntary, when an official change was made, in other words, a clerical error. Among the humbler classes of European society, and especially among illiterate people, individuals were willing to accept the mistakes of officials, clerks and priests as officially bestowing a new version of their surname, just as they had meekly accepted the surname they had been born with. In North America, the linguistic problems confronting immigration officials at Ellis Island in the 19th century were legendary as a prolific source of Anglicization.
