The exact date of foundation of Kineshma is unknown. The first written mention of Kineshma dates from 1429, when it was destroyed by the Tatars. At the end of the 15th century, Kineshma, with the city of Lukh, was given to the possession of Prince F. M. Belsky (according to other sources, in 1504 Kineshma Ivan III was granted to Prince F. M. Volsky, and then Ivan the Terrible - Prince IP Shuisky, after whose death in 1587 she returned to royal possession).

In 1504 and 1539 Kineshma is mentioned in the sources as a rural settlement. Initially, Kineshma was a small settlement, whose inhabitants engaged in fishing for themselves and the sovereign; then it expanded and formed a posad. In one of its parts, Yamskoy settlement (later Zarechye or Turuntayevka), there lived coaches, whose clan was descended from Turuntai Pronsky and belonged to the class of armored boyars. At the beginning of the 20th century, traces of the earthen wall and a dry moat remained intact.
