    Kent Family last edited by Hyjurocket on 08/28/23 04:50AM View full history

    The Kent family speaks to the fatherly family line of Jonathan Kent. The family's roots go back similar to sixth century England, when Sir Brian Kent took part in a few enterprises under the nom de plume Silent Knight. On no less than one event, he met a time-traveling Superman and it has been proposed that Sir Brian may have been the ancestor of the Kent family line. The immediate family line of Jonathan Kent is followed as far back as the late eighteenth to mid nineteenth century. The American Kents initially hailed from Boston, Massachusetts where print-shop proprietor Silas Kent lived with his significant other Abigail. The two sired eight kids, every one of whom were conceived in the Kent's Boston home. In 1854, Silas Kent joined the Emigrant Aid Society and chose to migrate his printing press to Lawrence, Kansas to advance his abolitionist standards. He brought his two most seasoned children, Nate and Jeb alongside him and they landed in Lawrence in the late spring of 1854.
