Re: my Kendall Line
Edward, Know exactly where you are coming from.Norman Festus Kendall's work called "History of the Kendalls, Cunninghams and Snodgrasses" printed about 1942.Norman had all of his work placed throughtout most of the more important records and it was accepted as being true.I am not saying that it is not.But the family lines you have stated are exactly the same as his in the book.Unfortunately Claude C Kendall proved a great deal of Norman's work to be in error in many places.It is to one own choosing which family line you take as several are written in the records in different directions.I dont personally feel that anyone of us can prove which is correct as we can site the records that we take it from.Norman was fortunate in that he gathered much of his info priort to WW11 before much of the destruction took place that destroyed so many of the English records. Are they right or wrong?? Who knows for sure.I have the same information that you have on the line you quoted as your line also.I have used it myself.It comes from Norman's work.I have a copy of that book. Let me know if you interested in it.Goes back to John and Margaret Kendall of 1421.Now as a matter of record accordingly, the first Kendall to reach American was Captain George Kendall in 1608 at Jamestown, VA.There is quite a bit of history about him.The next Kendall's that arrived according to Norman's records were Francis (Miles) and Edward Kendall.This all comes out of Norman's book that is scattered all over the US and most Kendall's take it as the official document in the Kendall families.
