Richard Kendall of Treworgy, Cornwall (a 1330, MP)
BLG1886 identifies Richard as the ancestor of the Richard who is shown below as the first mentioned by BLG1952. The intervening generations come from Vivian who shows the connections with dotted lines, indicating that they are not certain.
1. Richard Kendall of Treworgy (a 1367)
  A. Richard Kendall of Treworgy, Sheriff of Cornwall (a 1385)
  i. John Kendall
  ii. Stephen Kendall of Treworgy
  m. Christian
a. Richard Kendall 'of Dulo' of Treworgy (a 1456) the first mentioned by BLG1952
  m. Jane Penpons (dau of Richard Penpons)
  (1) John Kendall of Treworgy
  m. Jane Holland (dau/heir of Sir Robert Holland, m2. Sir John Trelawny)
  (A) Edward (or Edmund) Kendall of Treworgy
  m. Elizabeth Glyn (d 20.12.1513, dau/coheir of John Glyn of Morval, m2. Gilbert Beckett)
BLG does not follow this line any further other than to confirm that Edward was ancestor of later Kendalls of Treworgy & Morval. BLG1886 reports that his representative temp Charles II was bur (at Morval) 12.01.1640 leaving a son John (of Treworgy) bpt 07.08.1631. One of the sections of Visitation (Cornwall, 1620, Kendall) starts with the undermentioned Richard who was (we surmise) probably Edward's son or grandson.
