Template:Kemble There are six main variants of the Kemball surname. The Kemball variants (Kimble, Kemble, Kimbell and Kembell) can be found to intermingle with the Kemball family, but each of these could be a distinct name in their own right. The Kimball name derives from two Kemballs who sailed to America in 1634 on the ship 'Elizabeth'. There are now tens of thousands of Kimballs in America.

Other variants found include, Kimbel, Kembel, Kembal and even Simbel, but these are all likely to be transcription errors. Guild of One-Name Studies
