Kendray family

Research started by Barbara Bradley in October 2018 after finding information about Thomas Kendray of Grewelthorpe.

A book has been handed to me containing details of money collected in the village.
One page is as follows:-
1st January 1821.
This contains an Account of all sums of money left to Charitable Uses in the Township of Grewelthorpe in the County of York, specifying the particular lands out of which the same are payable and the periods of there [sic] Receipt and Distribution in each year, and an Account of the poor Persons to whom each Charity is disposed of is kept in an old Book belonging to the Township deposited in a Box in the possession of Thomas Kendray who is employed as Clerk by the Township.

Not a lot of information is available about Thomas.

Information found in Census returns and Parish Registers.
