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.
