King Genealogy & History

King is a surname originating in England, coming from the Old English cyning, meaning tribal leader. Among folks of Irish descent, it identifies ancestry in County Galway, and it was also given as a replacement for the name Conroy to Irish immigrants to the United States. King family history boasts such illustrious individuals as civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., nineteenth-century Vice President Rufus King, and tennis star Billie Jean King. Unfortunately for people engaging in amateur King genealogy, it is a sufficiently common last name that there are many unrelated branches carrying it.
