Chin Genealogy & History

Chin has its roots in the pre-seventh-century Old English word cin, a medieval nickname indicating someone with a noticeable chin or beard. It also is a topographical name descended from the Old English word Cinu indicating a chasm or fissure. Some different spellings include Chine, Shin, Attechine, and Ching. Chin family history gives us Stephen Chinne as a witness in the Assize Court Records of Somerset, England, in 1243, as the first known recording of the name. Chin genealogy includes audio engineer Howard A. Chinn; songwriter and record producer Nicholas (Nicky) Barry Chinn; and farmer, rancher and member of the Missouri House of Representatives Kathy L. Chinn.
