Atkins Genealogy & History

Atkins, equivalent to Adkins, literally means "son of little Adam", as Adams Jr. is used in 21st-century America. A patronymic name, "Ad(e)" is a diminutive form of the biblical name Adam, meaning "red earth", and Old English "kin" is a diminutive suffix meaning "little". The change from "d" to "t" was simply dialectic, and the ending "s" indicates patronymism. The Atkins family history originated in Westmoreland/Northumberland, where the Atkinses had a family seat. The family motto is "vincit cum legibus arma", meaning "he wins over violence with laws". The earliest American Atkins genealogy traces back to Barbados in the 1630s.
