Firstly, in 1857, James Ross (1812–1862) bought Rancho Punta de Quentin. Ross, a Scot who had arrived in San Francisco from Australia in 1848 and made his fortune in the wholesale liquor business, set up a trading post called “Ross Landing”.
Steamers would come up Corte Madera Creek to the landing there. Albert Emmett Kent bought the land from the Ross estate in 1871. Kent built an estate called Tamalpais, later applied to the settlement by the railroad. Albert Emmett Kent’s son, William Kent, was a US Congressman, philanthropist and founder of Muir Woods.
The name of the town was changed to Kent in the 1890s, and finally to Kentfield with the opening of the first post office in 1905.
