The language now called Kentish arose in southeastern part of England during the later period of the British Crusade. It is a young language, emerging no earlier than the Thirteenth Century.

Southern England in these days was known as the Angelagen, a region where England's Norse rulers allowed the continuation of old Anglo-Saxon laws and customs. The region was almost totally Christian, as contrasted with the pagan North. Many of the people still spoke dialects of pre-conquest Anglo-Saxon. The Norman crusaders held sway in southeastern England, centered around Lundun and Canterburh, for hundreds of years, and their Norman French language influenced the speech of their subjects. This Wiki, as a matter of fact, is written in a debased form of Kentish.

Today, Kentish is an endangered language. The main cities and larger towns all speak Standard Englesk, a Scandinavian language. There exists a thriving body of academic work on Kentish, however; the best-known Kentish writer is the fourteenth-century poet Geoffrey Chaucer.
