> Thanks to all those who replied to my Kenderchurch question. I too
wondered about the tiny church high on the hill, overlooking and so close to
the church of Ewyas Harold. With a small population and another church
only a mile away, perhaps the curate was only part time. I found several
people from Kenderchurch parish buried in Kentchurch (18th century). Does
anyone know if the Kenderchurch graves have been transcribed? They do not
seem to be on the Herefordshire Monumental Inscriptions site.

IRELAND family had headstones in Kenderchurch graveyard, even one for their
six year old son when he died in 1778, so they must have had some money.
They were not mentioned on land tax returns for the parish, so I concluded
they were not farming. In trying to puzzle out how they lived, I wondered if
they might have had an inn on the Hereford-Abergavenny road, or a haulier
business. Has anyone any other suggestions, or comments?
