The Early Kendall and Mylls Families of Newport Pagnell

Celia has composed several early Newport Pagnell families with the surnames Kendall, Mills, and Kendall als. Mylls. The primary source for them is the parish register but other records were also used. This covers up through the early 1600s in Newport Pagnell and they figure in to the 1605 will of Thomas Mylls als. Kendall. More Newport Pagnell families and others in parishes nearby may eventually be extracted as we try to expand on the family network of Thomas and Francis Kendall als. Miles.

He may also have had a daughter, Elizabeth KENDALL, born ca. 1565, who married John KYGHT on 5 Dec 1586, and maybe a another daughter Isabell KENDALL, buried as a young adult on 29 Sep 1584.

Thomas may have had a daughter, Joan MYLLS, born ca. 1582-3, who married John COLLYS on 19 Jan 1603/4 but Thomas’ will named his daughter Joan MABLEY, apparently the wife of Luke & mother of their children John & Thomas MABLEY, so Joan would have been born earlier, maybe ca. 1565-70.
