Subject: [KENDALL-L] George Kendall of Jamestown pt. 1
Date: Sun, 14 Mar 1999 18:13:55 EST

George Kendall of Jamestown was descended of a younger son of Kendall of
Lichfield Staffordshire; namely Sir Robert Kendall of Sulton. Sir Robert
was born no later than 1340 and possibly as early as 1320. Heraldic
evidence links him to the Kendalls of Hertfordshire and Southampton. The
Kendalls of Hertfordshire descend from Sir Jordan de Kendale. Sir Jordan
may have been a Hospilitier. Sir Jordan was probably born c. 1240. Sir
Jordan was a member of a family that had been serving the Crown from, at
least 1237.

Earl Warwick ( Letter from Burmuda 1615-1646, Vernon A. Ives, Toronto;

up in the feud between the Sandy faction ( his second cousin) and the
Rich faction ( where he had a personal relationship). He was part of a
smear campaign by Dutton; who went to great lengths to discredit Miles. A
smear that last till this day. ; See also "The Records of the Va. Company
