Kent Genealogy & History

Kent is an English locational name from the County of Kent, originally spelled by the Romans as Cantium or Cantia, noted in St. Bede's History of the Church. In theory, the name comes from the Celtic canto or Welsh cant, meaning rim or border, signifying an area near a coast or border. Kent family history enters the books with the notation of Nicholas de Kent in the Warwickshire records of the Knights Templar in 1185. Kent genealogy includes Maryland Senator and Governor Joseph Kent, 19th century Newfoundland Premier John Kent, and Marvin Kent, namesake of the Ohio town, which also houses Kent State University.
