About the Kingsland surname

The Kingslands came first to Barbados, in the 1600s and remained there for 100 + years. The first Governor General of Barbados Island was Nathaniel Kingsland. The Kingsland family then came and settled on the Hudson River in New Jersey. My great, great grandfather Richards Kingsland was a peer on the Hudson River, he married Sarah Merrill Thayer and they were the parents of Fannie Kingsland, my great grandmother. They came to North Carolina when war was declared between the North and the South, because they were in sympathy with the south.
