KENTON is a parish and village, 2 ½ miles north from Debenham, 6 north-west from Framlingham station, in Loes hundred, Plomesgate union, county court district of Framlingham, rural deanery of Hoxne, Suffolk archdeaconry, diocese of Norwich, East Suffolk. The church of All Saints is of very ancient architecture, erected in the 12th century: there is an old mural plate near the chancel in memory of the Garneys family, bearing inscription 1524. The register commences in 1538. The living is a vicarage, annual value £150 5s., with residence, and 33 acres of glebe, in the gift of Lord Henniker, M.P., and held by the Rev. William Henry White, M.A., of Jesus College, Cambridge. Lord Henniker, M.P., is owner of the great tithes. There is a National school opposite to the church, which is supported by the vicar and parishioners. There are two charities secured, notice of which is placed in front of the gallery of the church—one of an estate of 25 acres of land and cottage for the benefit of the poor of this parish and Debenham equally, and another of an estate, value £25 per annum, for the repair and ornament of the church. The Rev. Thomas Mills, M.A., is lord of the manor. Sir R. S. Adair, Bart., of Flixton, the Rev. Thomas Mills, M.A., and the Garneys family are the principal landed proprietors.
