Kearns Genealogy & History

Kearns is a German and Irish name, in the former case from the Old German gern, meaning desire, and used in the personal names Gernwin and Kernwin, or possibly from the town of Kern in Germany. Latterly, it�s from the Old Gaelic Ceirin, meaning the little black one, an obvious nickname for someone with dark hair, skin, or possibly eyes. Kearns family history starts with Hainrich Kerne of Runstall, recorded in Villingen in 1255. Kearns genealogy boasts of several noteworthy people, such as Pulitzer-winning biographer and historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, Utah Senator Thomas Kearns, actor Joseph Kearns, and intermittent windshield wiper inventor Robert Kearns.
