Status Deceased

Hiram Kent (1924-1980) was the father of Jonathan Kent and Clark's adoptive paternal grandfather. He was a farmer, like all the Kent men. His wife was Jessica Kent.

Physical AppearanceEdit


Both Martha and Jonathan indicate that the latter's 'hardheadediness' is inherited directly and discernibly from his own father. Like Jonathan, however, he is also a highly compassionate man, with a willingness to stick his neck out for others, as he shows during Jor-El's troubles. He shows a respect for his wife and her judgment which suggests that theirs is a partnership of equals.

Early lifeEdit

Hiram was one of the jury members who put Harry Volk in jail for murder.

Season ThreeEdit

Hiram and Jessica help "Joe".

After Louise McCallum was killed, her accused murderer "Joe" came across Hiram and his wife Jessica at the Kent Farm. Hiram believed in Joe's innocence and helped him get to the Kawatche Caves. As the two departed ways, Hiram told Joe that if he ever needed anything, he knew where to find him.

Later, his grandson Clark Kent started having flashes of Joe's presence in Smallville. When he touched Joe's jacket, he saw Hiram and Jessica help Joe get out of Smallville.


  • Clark told Jonathan what Hiram told "Joe" and suggested that Jonathan and Martha were chosen by Jor-El to raise him because of the love that he felt at the Kent Farm.
  • A cowboy and above all Gene Autry fan, he would have named his son after his hero if his wife hadn't managed to persuade him round to her way of thinking.
