Kington is a village in Worcestershire, England. Situated near to Flyford Flavell, the earliest known recording of Kington in the Domesday Book under "cyne-turne" – the "King's farmstead".

In 1714 Mr and Mrs Woolmere sold the Manor of Kington to Thomas Vernon (1654–1721). As he had no children the estate passed to his second cousin Bowater Vernon and then in turn to Thomas Vernon (1724–1771).[1]
