|I am researching the geneology of the KENT family which came to the United States in 1850 from Berkshire, England. Edwin D. Kent homesteaded in Tippecanoe Co. In, Iroquois Co., IL, Delaware Co, IA, and Hall Co. NE.|
Other US Lines of this family are LANE, CHILDS, JAMES, ROBERTS, CHESS, HAWKINS, mostly passing through OH or IN to IL.
I am particularly interested at this time in Kents in Bourton nearby towns in Berkshire and Wiltshire, England before 1850. I have traced the Kent line there as far as Edmunde Kente of bishopstone, Wilts, married in 1604. Other lines in this area include Povey, Rickards, Lacey als Hedges, and Kirby.
I am always happy to trade information.
