The first Kensington was a wooden, ship-rigged vessel purchased by the Navy at New Bedford, Mass., 28 October 1861 for service in the "Stone Fleet." She departed New Bedford 20 November and arrived Port Royal, S.C., by 17 December. She was presumably sunk in the main channel leading into Charleston Harbor 21 December.
