Thomas Kent (died 1561)[1] was the Archdeacon of Totnes. According to one source he held the post during 1549.[2] This Thomas Kent has been tentatively identified with the Thomas Kent of the period who was canon of Christ Church, Oxford, and who died in 1561–2.[3][4][5] That Thomas Kent was also rector of Marsh Gibbon from 1546.[6] The CCEd database makes Thomas Kent archdeacon of Totnes only in 1562; being rector of Tedburn St Mary and Holsworthy.[7]
