  • 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 bv Francis.

  • The emigrants to this country were Francis and Deacon Thomas Kendall, who sailed from England under the alias of Miles, again taking the name of Kandall on reaching this country. Their father, John Kendall, lived in Cambridge, England, in 1646, and died there in 1660. Francis Kendall is the common ancestor of all the Kendalls in this country, Deacon Thomas having ten daughters but no sons.
  • Francis Kendall, above mentioned, was in Charlestown, Massachusetts, prior to 1640. He was a large landholder and a miller by occupatin. He died in 1708. He married, at Woburn, Massachusetts, December 24, 1644, Mary Tidd, and their sons, born in Woburn, Massachusetts, were: John, July 2, 1646; Thomas, January 10, 1648; Samuel, March 8, 1659; Jacob, January 25, 1660. John Tidd, Tead, Ted or Teed, embarked May 12, 1637, at Yarmouth England, aged nineteen, as servant of Samuel Greenfield, of Norwich. Was of Charlestown that year, subscribed there December, 1640, "Town Orders" for Woburn, taxed at Woburn 1645, chosen surveyor of fences 1646. HIs wife Margaret died in 1651. He had second wife Alice, daughters Mary and Elizabeth, and a son John. His daughter Mary was doubtless wife of Francis Kendall.
    • Thomas Kendall, second son of Francis and Mary (Tidd) Kendall, born January 10, 1648, married, at Woburn 1673, Ruth Blogget, daughter of Samuel Blogget, Sr., of Woburn. Ruth Kendall died December 18, 1695. The male children of their family were: Thomas, born May 19, 1677; Samuel, October 29, 1682; 'Ralph, May 4, 1685'; Eleazer, November 16, 1687; Jabez, September 10, 1692. Samuel Blogget, Sr. was born in England, brought by parents to America when one and a half years old, came to Woburn to reside, married Ruth Iggleden, of Boston, December 13, 1655. He died July 3, 1687, and his widow October 14, 1703.
      • Thomas Kendall, eldest son of Thomas and Ruth (Blogget) Kendall, born May 19, 1677, married Sarah, daughter of Rev. Thomas Cheever, at Boston, Massachusetts, November 7, 1701. They lived first in Woburn, where four children were born, moving to Lexington about 1710 and to Framingham, 1761. History of Framingham gives Benjamin, baptized in Lexington, as their first born child. History of Lexington records the birth of three children born before him in Woburn. This discrepancy in the Framingham records has misled those who have tried to follow this Kendall line. Their children, born in Woburn, were Sarah, September 7, 1702; Thomas, July 30, 1704; Abigail, August 10, 1706; Benjamin, 1708. Those born in Lexington were: Mary, 1711; Josiah, 1713; Ezekial, 1715; Elizabeth, 1716; Ruth, 1720; Jane, 1722; Elijah and Elisha, 1725. Ezekial Cheever, born in London, England, January 25, 1614, came to Boston in 1637, died in Boston, August 21, 1708. He was famous as master of Boston Latin School, went to New Haven, Connecticut, 1638, thence to Ipswich, Massachusetts, thence to Charlestown, Massachusetts, and finally in 1671 to Boston, where he resided until his death. Rev. Thomas Cheever, son of Ezakial, born in Ipswich, August 23, 1656, graduated in Harvard College, 1677, first pastor of First Church, Chelsea, 1715, died in Chelsea, November 27, 1749.
