Re: Robert Fendick, Brandon and Thornaby
Hi - I am new to the site and don't know whether it is still active?
Replying to Linda Provenza's posting of 6/03/00 with a 3-year delay:
My father Lawrence Fendick Robson (1916 - 1992) was son of Annie Robson, born Annie Fendick. She was daughter of Robert Fendick (1843 - 1894), who was born in Brandon, Suffolk but worked as a blacksmith at Thornaby on Tees, in northern England. This must relate somehow to Linda Provenza's Thomas Fendick of Brandon. However, Robert married a Susanna Cornwall of Cavenham, Suffolk, and they only had daughters;
6 sisters survived childhood and 5 of them married, so my father had many cousins who were Fendicks on their mothers' side!
All of this comes from my father's memoirs, written when he retired - I have no official certificates to back up, but if you would like to know more about the Thornaby Fendicks, let me know!
