Jenkins Genealogy & History

Jenkins is an English and Welsh name. It was originally derived from the personal name "Jenkin". This is a combination of the old personal name "John" (derived from the Hebrew personal name "Yochanan", meaning "God has graced me with a son") and the suffix "-kin", used to denote smallness, intimacy, or endearment. Jenkins family history in England is first recorded with one Richard Janekyn (an alternate spelling) in Sussex in 1296. In Wales, the family first hailed from Monmouthshire. Jenkins genealogy includes Richard Jenkins, an award-winning actor, and Roy Harris Jenkins, who founded the Social Democratic Party in England and became chancellor of the University of Oxford.
