Families covered: Kynardesley of Kynardesley, Kynardesley (Kynnardsley) of Loxley

(1) The family name has been spelt in various ways, not least because it includes both the i or y option and the single or double n issue. Kynardesley (sometimes with a double n) is most used by BLG1952 for the early generations whereas Commoners uses Kynnardsley. We change to Kynnersley on the continuation page.
(2) Commoners reported that "The family of the Kynnersleys is very ancient, beiing seated long before the Conquest in co. Hereford, in a castle soe called at present."
