    Notes 
    • Thomas Rudd named the children of Francis and Robert Kendrick in his will. These children would have been nieces and nephews (Thomas Rudd is Franky Rudd's brother). This fact, coupled with the fact that Francis and Robert had a daughter named Tempy and Thomas and Mahala also had a daughter named Tempy, have convinced me that Robert and Francis are indeed the parents of my Thomas Kendrick (born 1821). This also convinces me that Francis (Franky) Rudd is the daughter of Harwood (Herrod) Rudd.
