A Quick Overview of Kenton
Kenton is an area in northwest London, England, partly in the London Borough of Harrow and partly in the London Borough of Brent.
- The hamlet was recorded as "Keninton" in 1232.
- The name derives from the personal name of the Saxon "Coena" and the Old English "tun", a farm - and means "the farm of Coena" and his family who once lived on a site near here.
- Before the 20th century, the tiny settlement was concentrated around in what was Kenton Lane (the easternmost part of which remains as Old Kenton Lane to the east of Kingsbury station) and is now part of the present day Woodgrange Avenue and Kenton Road.
