Sorry if this is in the wrong place but I saw a post earlier with a tag line saying they were researching Kendall planemakers of York. I'm a turner so can only think it was here.
I am York born and bred so asked a local facebook history group if they'd heard of them.
There are 36 planemakers listed in York cemetery apparently! William Kendal (with one L) was a plane maker and registered as a freeman in 1807. There is a Richard Kendall (Two L's) born 1805 to William and Dorothy died 1865 aged 60 and buried in York with no memorial. Hope this of help to whoever it was?

Thank you Neil, so good of you to ask and forward this information.
I'm going to cross reference those dates and see if they match.
As for 36 being buried, it doesn't surprise me as of its time York was the largest centre for the planemaking industry in the country.
Did anyone offer up a list of the 36 as it would be an interesting bit of information to cross reference with our lists of known makers ?
Regards Andy

@Trevanion cheers

Neil, your William Kendal may be a different man as I believe mine (2L`s) was born 1764 died 1840.
Also my Richard has a born date of 1803.
Cheers Andy

There was a list of burials. I use facebook on a notebook rather than my failing laptop but I'll see if I can copy!

The 1820 poll book shows William Kendall, Planemaker, Little Shambles.
If anything else crops up I'll pass it on.
