The Motto is 'I live in hope'

The surname Kinnear and the variant Kynnier are derived from the lands of Kinnear near Wormit, Fife, Scotland.
Early historical references mention Reginald de Kener witnessing a gift of one mark of silver annually by Alexander, Earl of Buchan to the Abbey of Arbroath c. 1250

Henry Kinneir of Kinneir was appointed commendator of Balmerino Abbey in 1574 and John Kinneir of that Ilk was bailie of the abbey.
