  • 'The Kendall family in America (1919)
  • ' The ancestor of the American Kendall family was John Kendall, who was born in 1608 and died in County Cambridge in 1660. Two of his sons, Francis and Thomas came to New England before 1640.
    • Deacon Thomas Kendall who was a proprietor of Reading, Mass., in 1644; was admitted freeman 10 May 1648. He married Rebecca ___ and had ten daughters: Elizabeth Dendall born 1642, married John Eaton in Waterown, 8 March 1658; Rebecca born 1644, married 1661, James Boutwell; Mary born 1647, married 1664 Abraham Bryant; Hannah born 1650, married 1667, John Parker; Sarah born and died 1650; Sarah, second, born 1653, married Samuel Dunton; Abigail born 1655, married John Nichols; Susanna born 1658, married Nathaniel Goodwin; Tabitha born 1660, married John Pearson; and Thomas born 1663, died 1664. Deacon Kendall had no son who lived to adult age.
    • Francis Kendall, son of John, and brother of Thomas, deposed in December, 1658, that his age was about 38 years, making him born in 1620. In 1662 he made affidavit that his age was bout 48 years which would place the date of his birth at 1614. He settled first in Charlestown, but soon after removed to Woburn, where with 31 others he signed the town orders 18 December, 1640. In the old registry of the town of Woburn reads the entry:
    • "Francis Kendall, alias Miles, and Mary Tedd (Tidd) maryed 24th of 10th mo. (24 Dec. D-S) 1644."
    • Mary Tidd was a daughter of John Tidd. It is claimed that Francis left England against the wishes of his family, using the name of Miles, until he was settled in this country. Francis was admitted freeman 10 May, 1648. He served the town as selectman, held numerous other offices and was looked upon as "a gentleman of great respectability and influence." He owned and operated a corn mill in Woburn, being a miller by trade. The mill now on the old Kendall homestead was built by Samuel Kendall in 1700 and is near the location of the first mill built by Francis.
