Re: KENDALL of WES, ENGLAND
Hello Colleen, I am also researching this line to connect John Kendall b.1421. His first child is supposedly born in 1435,making him only 14 years old. This, of course, is possible, but is it probable?
There is a "younger son of the houses of Austrey,Twycrosse and Smithsbye" who is possibly the correct line. Many sources I have looked at attribute the Kendalls of Woburn,Ma. to the Kendal/Askham,Westmoreland,England area.
They could have been that area very early, but the ancestral lines which came to this country appear to be from the Norfolk area.
As John Kendall died in Cambridge,England, I tend to believe Norfolk might be more involved.Send my your thoughts via E-Mail,please,regards L.K.Sawyer
