The village name suggests that the original dedication was to the 5th century nun Saint Cein / Keyne, or more possibly her sister Saint Ceingar. Both daughters of King Brychan of Brycheiniog / Breconshire, Saint Ceingar’s son was the Saint Cynidr of Kenderchurch. Certainly Saint Ceingar founded a Church, usually said to be in Maelienydd, north-east Radnorshire, but it could have been the Church at Kentchurch. Although the present Church is in the style of c.1290-1350, it was rebuilt in 1859 by the Scudamore family of nearby Kentchurch Court. A number of 17th and 18th monuments and floor-slabs were retained from the old Church. That commemorating John Scudamore, 1616, also depicts his widow and their ten children, one a baby in a cradle. The bells were cast by the famous firm of Abraham Rudhall of Gloucester, who cast hundreds of bells between 1684 and 1835.
