Any Kent family genealogist out there? Looking to compare DNA for family line. When did the first Kent's come over to America and what were their names?
My Kent links are from S E London/N Kent/Birmingham/St.Albans,Herts.
My surname is Kent and in the village that live in there is about 4 different Kent Family. My dad's name is actually Clarke Kent! I must be a super hero!

A family of Kent's moved from Saskatchawan to Independence, Colorado in the 1800s, had a daughter, who had kids, who had kids of which I am one, and is from where I received my middle name. Any genealogists out there know more about this family?
Well Im trying to figure things out here..my Grandpa's surname is Kent ..and he seems to think we are black..but we all have fair skin, green,blue or hazel eyes....but the feautures of black people.....my grandmas maiden name is Brightwell which is also an english origin name ....this whole thing is confusing ....her family origins show records of slaves but i cant figure out where they came from ..
My Kent ancestors lived in Hertfordshire during the 18th and early 19th century. The family were in Much Hadham for many years, before moving to Bishops Stortford. No luck in confirming earlier records, but I suspect they lived in or near London prior.
My brother has researched our Kent family name to St Eval, Cornwall to 1500s. We were there 3weeks ago and the Vicar had a special service for us and our "ancient" relatives - very special emotional Event
I am a Kent from Suffolk. Looking and wondering what might be around so to speak
I managed to trace my family origins to John Kent who attended Trinity College Oxford. I beleive he was married to Charlotte Windsor in the 1500s.
I am only 15 but I have no idea where my dads side of the family comes from where I got my name becuase I haven't takes to him in 8 years considering he told me he dident want me. So I am just curious if my origin.
From neath south wales father was from Staffordshire

Devin M. Kent
Hello fellow name bearers, I was born in West Palm Beach, FL in 1990. My father George R. Kent was born in Amarillo, TX in 1953 on an air-force base. His father was also named George R. Kent but they have different middle names that both start with the letter R, he was also born in Texas but I don't know when or where. So cool to see the name "Kent" is all over the Globe!
My father and grandfathers names were Oredas David Kent.
My grandfather was Richard Kent married to Edna Pennington. They both passed in March 1956 and May 1956 in Kansas City, Missouri. My mother was Jennie Lou Kent and her brother is Joseph Kent. They were born on the same date but 3 years apart- January 12, 1940 and 1937. I am trying to find out more information on the side of my mother's father. Please contact if you have any information to share with me. email@example.com

Hello, I live in Kentucky and I am the last male member of my family. I have been researching the Kent name for two decades and will gladly share information with any other interested person, or compare DNA's. I have found connections of the Kents to Francis Marion (the swamp fox) of South Carolina, land for the William and Mary college in Williamsburg Virginia and one of the founders of Mars Hill college in North Carolina. Im not selling anything I am a working man that lives in the hills of Kentucky and makes a living working,yep, a blue collar person. So to dispel any thoughts of me having anything to sell, I dont. Please feel free to get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
My ancestors are, (going back,) Mack Darcy Kent, Darcy Ernest Kent, Fred L. Kent, John Kent, William Kent, and William Kent, who apparently came to the US from Essex, around 1750. Interestingly, further ancestors, named Hoit, Hoyt, Hoight, Haight and Hayt, (illiterate, apparently,) came to Mass in 1629, 9 years after the Mayflower, can't claim that. Does anyone else have these ancestors? Upper NY, to VT, to ON, to Michigan. Fred L. Kent (no middle name) owned and operated the general store in Horr, MI around 1890-1910 or so.
