The family of Kendall in
KENDALL England derives their sur-
name from the town of Ken-
dall, county Westmoreland. The town's
name was doubtless derived from that of the
river Ken on which it is located. The fam-
ilv in England is very large and widely dis-

tributed, many of the branches bearing arms
and having- distinguished members. The
name is common in counties Bedford, Essex,
Lancaster, Derby, Devon and Hertford. In
1575 a branch of the family settled in Thorp-
thules, Durham, a younger son of the Ken-
dall family of Ripon, Yorkshire, where the
family lived at an early date. Among the
early Kendalls who were prominent was John
Kendall, sheriff of Nottingham, killed in the
battle of Bosworth in 1485, fighting in the
army of Richard ITT. It is said that the
Westmoreland family of Kendall has sent
more representatives to the British senate
than any other in the United Kingdom. This
family bears arms: Argent a chevron three
dolphins naiant embowed sable. Crest: A
lion passant gules. Motto, Virtus de pressa
resurget.

(I) John Kendall, progenitor of the Amer-
ican family, lived in the county of Cambridge,
England, in 1646. died there in 1660. Two
of his sons came to America: 1. Francis,
mentioned below. 2. Deacon Thomas, pro-
prietor of Reading, Massachusetts, in 1644 ;
admitted freeman May 10, 1648; had ten
daughters and one son, leaving no descend-
ants bearing his name.

(II) Francis, son of John Kendall, was the
immigrant ancestor, and was born in Eng-
land about 1620. He was in Charlestown,
Massachusetts, before December, 1640, when
with thirty-one others he signed 'the town
orders of Woburn. His name was on the
tax list of Woburn in 1645. He was admitted
a freeman May 26, 1647. The town records
of his marriage, May 26, 1647, to Mary Tidd,
daughter of John Tidd, call him Francis
Kendall alias Miles. His brother Thomas
had no such alias and the tradition is that he
assumed the name of Miles in order to con-
ceal his intentions about emigrating, at a
time when the restrictions were obnoxious
to those seeking homes in America. Sewall
says in his History of Woburn : "He was
a gentleman of great respectabilty and influ-
ence in the place of his residence. He served
the town at different times eighteen years in
the board of selectmen and was often on im-
portant committees to distribute land and
erect meeting houses." In 1678 he was tyth-
ingman, but later he differed with the church
as to infant baptism and was fined for
neglecting to attend public worship. He was
attending the meetings of the Anabaptists.
Hi's will was dated May 9, 1706. He was a
miller bv trade and he left his corn mill to



his sons Thomas and Samuel. It remained
in the family by inheritance in direct line six
generations, the present structure being built
by Samuel Kendall (2), about 1700. He died
in 1708, aged eighty-eight years. His wife
died in 1705. Children: 1. John, born May
or July 2, 1646^ 2. Thomas, born January
10, 1648-49. 3. Mary, horn January 20, 1650-

uel, born March 8, 1659-60. 8. Jacob, born

settled there. He married (first) January 2,
1683-84, Peris Hayward, of Woburn, who
died October 19, 1694. He married (second)
January 10, 1694-95, Alice Temple. Some
records give him credit for twenty or more
children, but the younger six may belong to
his son Jacob who settled in Billerica. Chil-
dren : 1. Persis, born August 24, 1685. 2.

on his father's farm. At the age of nineteen
he left home and located in Chicopee Falls,
Massachusetts, entering the employ of N. P.
Ames. When the shops of Mr. Ames were
moved to the other village a few years later
he went with the concern. He followed the
trade of blacksmith until within a few years
of his death. When the Ames Company be-
gan to manufacture sword blades for the
United States government, there were no me-
chanics in the shops who could do the tem-
pering satisfactorily. Mr. Kendall experi-
mented for some time in a quiet way and was
fortunate enough to discover the right pro-
cess. He was successful in keeping it secret,
and while the shops were making swords, he
had all the work he could do, sometimes fin-
ishing three hundred blades in a day. He
bought the Cabot House of Chester \Y.
Chapin in 1850 and carried on that hotel and
a livery stable in connection with if for mam-
years. He also owned the stage route be-
tween Springfield and South Hadley and the

also an Exchange street block that still bears
his name. He lived for many years in the
house on Center street in which he died, May
10, 1891. He was never active in public or
social life, and amassed his property by great
industry and application during the sixty-two
years in which he lived in Chicopee. At the
time of his death he was one of the larget
taxpayers in the city and one of the oldest
and most highly respected citizens. In re-
ligion he was a Universalist, in politics a Dem-
ocrat. In many respects his career was

unique. He made his fortune by his own
hands and his superlative skill as an artisan.
He dignified the trade that he followed and
demonstrated the possibilities of his calling.

died 1864. He married (second) in 1866,
Harriet Prime Carson, of Chicopee, born No-
vember 27, 1839, daughter of James and
Rachel (Prime) Carson. She survives him.
