Deacon Thomas Kendall, Son of John Kendall (1580-1660) of Norfolk, England and Elizabeth Sacherell (1584-1640) of Cambridge, England

He arrived in New England in 1638.
He was a Deacon of his church and a Sergeant in the Massachusetts Militia.

A family's legacy gets diluted when there's nobody to carry on the name. This is what happened to the
descendants of Thomas Kendall, a man who may have been
forgotten as the founder of a family in America by the mere fact he had no surviving sons.
Note: Thomas was said to have been born in about 1617 in Norwich, England. His parents may have been John Kendall and Elizabeth Sacherall. It is known that he had a brother Francis who migrated to America with him. Thomas came over on the ship Defence, arriving in Boston on October 8, 1635. While Francis settled in Woburn, Thomas went to Reading, where he married Rebecca Paine in about 1640. He became freeman on May 10, 1645 and served as a deacon.
Between 1642 and 1665, Thomas and Rebecca had 11 children. All but one were girls; the only boy died as an infant. Of the ten daughters, two died as babies, giving the Kendalls a family of eight girls. One by one, they married, many staying in Reading and populating the town with their children. Knowing their father's name would die out, each daughter is said to have named one of her sons "Kendall." The name carried on for several more generations as a male given name, but when genealogies were later written about the Kendall family in America, Thomas was only given a brief mention with all focus on his brother Francis' line.
