On this page is an image shown from the wedding registers of the Nederduits Gereformeerde Gemeente of Woudrichem.

It is the eldest known registration of the family name Kentie. In that period written as Kenti.

The document shows that Alexander Kentie is from Scotland. Unfortunately, there is no reliable data on his birth and/or parents present.

Several sources on the internet indicate that Alexander was born in 1634 in the town of Dyke in Scotland as the son of Colin Kintey and Isobell Rett. However, no documents from that period confirm this assumption. That is why Colin and Isobell are not included in genealogy on this website.

If someone has reliable data about Alexander's origin, the webmaster would appreciate it if this data is shared with him.
