Re: William Kendall of Warthill York d. 1856
Yes, we are related.Your Charles was the eldest son of William and Ann Southcoat, who maried at Holtby 1814. I`m descended from Richard, who remained at Warthill.If I remember correctly, Charles married twice and if you need the details I have them filed somewhere.
William is buried at Warthill Churchyard and I have a photo of his headstone which for some reason was overlooked by the local family history society and is not on their records. (I`ve asked why!)
William is said to be born at "Wheadley" [1851 census] and I can only guess that it is in the Ilkley area.I am unable to trace his parents but have made good progress with his wife`s family.
I also have notes copied from another descendant of Charles which may be of interest.
UI`ll look forward to hearing from you.
