KENT is one of the more beautiful of England's counties and one of the richest in ancient history. From the days of early invasions it has been in the forefront of national progress, habitation and culture; the number of family seats and landed gentry estates increased each decade, and by the eighteenth century Kent was among the premier parts chosen as a place of residence for the aristocracy, and those wishing to join that select circle. No contemporary history of that period was complete without reference to the families responsible for building the many lovely houses, landscaping the fallow countryside and populating the busy county towns.
