Name and history 
It is the only Kingsville Township statewide. The township was named for a resident of Conneaut named King, who paid early settlers four gallons of whiskey to name the township for him.
The first settler in Kingsville Township was Eldad Harrington, a hunter who arrived in 1803. Two years later, he was followed by former Massachusetts resident Walter Fobes.
The township is governed by a three-member board of trustees, who are elected in November of odd-numbered years to a four-year term beginning on the following January 1. Two are elected in the year after the presidential election and one is elected in the year before it. There is also an elected township clerk, who serves a four-year term beginning on April 1 of the year after the election, which is held in November of the year before the presidential election. Vacancies in the clerkship or on the board of trustees are filled by the remaining trustees. Currently, the board is composed of chairman Doug Reed and members Dennis Huey and Charles Page.
