Hello,

I have had some luck and help with the Shropshire Archives, who have posted me [for a fee, but worthwhile] the 12pp trial and conviction to 10 years transportation, for housebreaking, to Van Diemen's Land of my gggg grandfather Joseph Kendall in 1841. He was a labourer, from the Parish of Hales Owen.

Anyhow,  I will be in England [from Tasmania - Van Diemen's Land!] in Sept and early Oct 2010 and would very much like to meet any Kendalls and/or Kendall descendants, or those with local knowledge, in the area between Hales Owen, Romsley and Hunnington.

For example, it would be great to meet people  who might be related from the siblings Joseph likely left behind. Also I am hoping that there might be some buildings still standing that are mentioned in the records that I could visit.

Joseph's father,  William Kendall whose house was from  the township of Romsley.
Joseph, in Tasmania, said his native place was "Houston, Shrophire"
but he was apprehended in the Bulls Head public house in Hunnington and it seems he lived at the time at Back Lane, Hunnington.

I have his Tasmanian convict indent record if you are related and interested, let me know.

Joseph Kendall 
Convicted 18 Oct 1841 Salop Shrewsbury
Travelled from Portsmouth on ship MOFFATT (3). Arrived 28 Nov 1842 # 39579
Joseph Kindle married Sarah Ann Cox  6/5/1863 (born 1843 aged 20) when he was aged 38, born 1824/5.
Died: 31/1/1877 Ulverstone, Tasmania, Aged 52

It would be great to map these locations, understand more about what happened and see the places where an ancestor came from.

Julie

Hi Richard /  Kendall relatives

I am sorry I have taken 4?   YEARS to get back in touch !
Are you still out there ?

I will be coming to the UK in a few months - again - end of 2017 - to Birmingham etc - and planning to leave some time to meet any willing/available Kendall relatives.

Hopefully we can reconnect

All the best

Julie, Tasmania
