Miles Files:

Mary Kendall was born in 1661 at Newport House, Northampton Co, VA.

Mary was named in her uncle's will on 13 April 1667 at Northampton Co, VA. She was shown as kinswoman (meaning niece) Mary Kendall in the will of Daniel Baker, brother of Susanna Kendall.

She married Hancock Lee, son of Col. Richard Lee and Anne Constable, circa 1680.

Mary Kendall received land as a gift on 1 August 1685 at Northampton Co, VA. In 1685 William Kendall gave 700 acres of this tract to his daughter Mary and her husband Hancock Lee, saying that it was where they were then living. They were to have a life interest, and then the land was entailed to their daughter Anna and her heirs. In his will of the next year, Kendall confirmed this gift and also left jointly to Mary Lee and a son William Kendall 60 acres and the "Tanne house." This was on the branch at the south and eventually became a part of the Lee Land. Not long afterwards the Lees moved across the bay where he is said to have built the first Ditchley.

Mary was named in her father's will on 29 October 1685 at Northampton Co, VA. She was shown as my daughter Mary, the now wife of my son-in-law Hancock Lee, Gent. in the will of William Kendall Sr., merchant, wife Sarah. [Note: Sarah Custis was Col. Kendall's fourth and final wife; he had gone through one in England and two more in Virginia, including Mary's mother, the also much-married Susannah Baker.]

She died on 24 December 1694 at Northumberland Co, VA.
