Kensington is a town in Rockingham County, New Hampshire, United States. The population was 2,124 at the 2010 census.

History

Once a parish of Hampton, Kensington was incorporated in 1737 by Massachusetts Governor Jonathan Belcher, when New Hampshire was still part of that colonial province. Of the 27 towns granted by Governor Belcher, only 3 were given names, one of which was Kensington, named for Baron Kensington, owner of Kensington Palace in London.

Notable inhabitants

  • Dan Dailey (glass artist)
  • James Bruce MacQuarrie, pilot of Pan Am Flight 103 which was blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland on 21 December 1988.
  • Hideaki Miyamura, studio potter
  • Norman Muscarello, who sighted a UFO in 1965, the story of which was featured in the bestselling book Incident at Exeter (1966), by journalist and magazine columnist John G. Fuller. (See Exeter incident).
