Those who hold the foregohig view maintain that the adjoining parish of Rolvenden was derived from the very common names Rclf or Kolf, the plural of which might be Ivollen or llolveii, hence Ivolvenden. Architects, in oklen times, displayed great wisdom in the selection of sites for their Churches, and other Ecclesiastical Buildings.
(Page 3.) The study of Etymology gives ample scope for speculation, thus with the various names ending in " den," some imagine that this termination merely records the home of the family, and according to this theory Benenden would be the Den of the Benes, the name Beney being at one time common.
