English: according to Reaney, a habitational name from Kennerleigh in Devon, so named from the Old English personal name Cyneweard + Old English leah ‘woodland clearing’. However, the surname is found predominantly in Cheshire and Lancashire, suggesting that a more likely source is Kinnerley in Shropshire, which is named with the Old English personal name Cyneheard + leah. Kennerley is the much commoner spelling in the U.K.
