Junkin Family History

This is an English name of some antiquity, deriving from the medieval given name Jenkin, which is a diminutive of John (meaning "Grace of the Lord") with the diminutive suffix "kin", indicating "young John". There are a number of variant forms of the surname in the modern idiom, ranging from Jenkin, Jenkyn and Jenking, to Jen(c)ken, Jinkin and Junkin. The adding of an "s" to the surname is the patronymic form of the name indicating "son of", first recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire of 1327, where Richard Jenkins and William Jankins are both listed.
