Charles C. KENDRICK was born on 8 APR 1844.
Hon. Charles C. Kenrick , State Senator, is one of the most prominent citizens of Franklin, N.H. He was born April 8, 1844 , fourth son of Stephen and Clarissa A. (Blanchard) Kenrick . His paternal grandfather, John Kenrick , who was born December 17, 1764 , was a native of Amesbury, Mass. He married Sarah Colby , of the same place, born January 25, 1771 , and had nine children, of whom Stephen , father of Charles C. , was the youngest. John Kenrick died in Amesbury in 1806 , and his widow married David Marsh .

Stephen Kenrick was born June 15, 1806 , in Haverhill, Mass. , and came to Franklin when a young man. After remaining here a short time, he went to McIndoe's Falls, Vt. , where he was for a few years engaged in business; and from there he went to Bangor, Me. Later, returning to Franklin , he was married December 29, 1833 , to Clarissa A. Blanchard . He then went into business in the town, and continued thus engaged for the greater part of his life. He was a very prominent citizen, and held various positions of importance. He was President of the Hillsborough National Bank, and also of the Concord & Portsmouth Railroad. His death took place on August 4, 1884 , and that of his wife October 12, 1893 . They were the parents of seven children--Ebenezer B. , Ebenezer B. (second) , Stephen B. , Charles C. , John Smith , Dr. Timothy Francis , and Clarissa Ann . The first Ebenezer B. was born March 3, 1837 , and died August 16, 1838 ; and Ebenezer B., second , was born November 6, 1838 , and died February 9, 1839 . Stephen B. was born April 9, 1842 , and married Lizzie A. Rowe , of Plymouth, N.H. He was interested in a railroad, the Fort Madison (Ia.) & Green Bay (Wis.) , of which he was superintendent. He died January 30, 1896 , at his home in Clinton, Ia. , where his wife still resides. John Smith Kenrick was born October 28, 1846 , and died August 10, 1847 . Timothy Francis Kenrick , born July 8, 1849 , was graduated at Dartmouth College and also at Utica Medical College. He practised a few years in this country, and then went abroad and became the medical adviser of some foreign nobleman. In this capacity he travelled considerably, spending some time in Rome and Naples especially. He died at Naples , January 29, 1879 , in his thirtieth year. The Doctor was a man of culture and wide intelligence, with bright prospects before him. The circumstances of his death in a foreign land seemed to render it doubly sorrowful. Clarissa Ann Kenrick November 8, 1852 , and died August 11, 1853 .

Charles C. , the special subject of the present article, was educated in the academies at Boscawen and New London, N.H. He was a great lover of horses, and started out when a young man in the livery business at Franklin Falls , in which he was engaged until 1894 . He still remains in the stock business, being a breeder of fine horses and cattle, and owning some of the finest horses in the State. He became interested in farming, and now pursues it on a large scale, employing a number of hands to carry on the work. He is connected with the Franklin Savings Bank of Franklin Falls . He also has a keen aptitude for the real estate business, and at present has the largest interests in that line of any one in the city. He has built and now owns many of the finest business blocks and dwellings both in Franklin and Franklin Falls . His own residence in the former place is a beautiful one, and stands without an equal in the town. In political matters Mr. Kenrick has always shown an active interest, being a stanch Republican. He was Representative from Franklin for two years, and was also on the Board of Selectmen several years, being Chairman of the Board in 1886 . He was elected State Senator for the terms of 1897 and 1898 . He is identified with social organizations as follows: he is a member of the Knights of Pythias , and was charter member of St. Andrew's Lodge at Franklin Falls . He also belongs to the A. O. U. W. at the same place. Both he and his wife attend the Congregational church at Franklin .

Mr. Kenrick was married August 5, 1894 , to Arabelle Rowe Morgan , of Gilford, N.H. She was born November 26, 1849 , daughter of James and Lucinda (Harper) Rowe , the former of Gilford , and the latter of New Hampton, N.H. Mr. Rowe , who was a farmer most of his life, died August 19, 1893 , his wife's decease having occurred in 1868 . They had six children--George W. , Charles C. , Mary E. , Sarah , Clara A. , and Arabelle . Of these, the first-born, George , is a farmer in Manchester, N.H. ; Charles is a farmer in Methuen, Mass. ; Mary is the widow of John McDonald , and lives in Cambridgeport, Mass. ; Sarah is the widow of Eugene Spaulding , and lives with Mr. and Mrs. Kenrick ; and Clara is not living. Mr. Kenrick has no children, but has a niece living with him, Florence May Spaulding , born June 10, 1884 , who is a very attractive child.

Mr. Kenrick is decidedly the most widely known and successful man of a large community. He has many and varied interests, and his spirit and energy are adequate for whatever he undertakes. He is a most prosperous and substantial citizen, and his influence has made itself felt in many ways for the good of the public.

Biography of Stephen Kenrick by Hon. Geo. W. Nesmith

This biography is from "The History of Merrimack and Belknap Counties, New Hampshire". Edited by D. Hamilton Hurd and Published in 1885.


Stephen Kenrick, Esq., one of the oldest and most influential citizens of Franklin, died on the morning of the 4th of August, A.D. 1884, after a lingering illness of several months.

He was born in Haverhill, Mass., June 15, A.D. 1806; his age, therefore exceeded seventy-eight years. He was the youngest member of a family of nine children, born to John Kenrick and Sarah Colby. They were both natives of Amesbury, but became citizens of Haverhill soon after their marriage. The husband was born December 16, 1764; the wife January 25, 1771. John died by a casualty in 1806. His widow subsequently became the wife of David Marsh, and the mother of two other children, viz.: Nathaniel, of Staten Island, N.Y., deceased, and Mary, wife of Rev. G. W. Kelley, resident in Haverhill, Mass., now deceased.

The name of Kenrick, or Kendrick, or Kendricke appears to be of early English origin. The name of John seems to have been adopted as an early favorite by the family. We find the name of John Kendrick, sheriff in London, in 1645. The same name appears as Lord-Mayor of London in 1651. John Kenrick was in Ipswich, Mass., in 1657. John Kenrick, John Kenrick, Jr., and Elijah Kenrick were among the petitioners, in May, 1678 to the Legislature, to set off part of Cambridge and to establish the town of Newton. John Kenrick, Jr., of Newton, marched from that town, and was engaged in the Lexington battle, April 19, 1775. Among the many immediate descendants of John Kenrick, of Amesbury, Mass., who were distinguished in the walks of business and professional life, were Professors Henry L. Kendrick, of West Point Academy, and John Kendrick, of Marietta College, Ohio, both first cousins, and James R. Kendrick, superintendent of the Old Colony Railroad, who was also second cousin of Stephen Kenrick, Esq. These gentlemen were all natives of the town of Lebanon, in this State, and we might enumerate many others of the same family, and their " kith and kin ", or collaterals, in different parts of the Union, as being prominent and successful business men, and highly respected in their respective localities.

Early in this century, and prior to 1820, Timothy Kenrick, the elder brother of Stephen, had emigrated to the town of Lebanon, and established there a profitable mercantile business. He had acquired early a good education, and was known and honored by his fellow citizens as a man of integrity by several public trusts. He was town clerk thirty-seven consecutive years, and was several times elected their pepresentative to the Legislature. He was often employed in the settlement of estates of his vicinity, and was for many years director of the Northern Railroad. He well discharged these important trusts. In the meantime his brother Stephen was with his kind father-in-law, Marsh, in Haverhill, where he received good paternal protection and the benefits of the best schools found there until he arrived at the age of fifteen years. He then was commited to the care of his brother Timothy, then of Lebanon, and was employed in his brother's store. Here he received that valuable systematic instruction which proved useful to him in after-life. We next find him for a short time in Bangor, Me. Afterwards he was engaged in trade for himself with Mr. James Howe, at Barnet, Vt.; next, for a short time, at Boscawen Plain, N. H. Then, in 1831, he formed an advantageous co-partnership with Mr. Brewer, of McIndoe's Falls village, Vt., and there continued his business until 1836, when he came to Franklin, and ever since has made his permanent residence here, identifying himself with the business of this town, and becoming one of it's most active and prosperous citizens.

For many years he was largely interested in various railroad projects and contracts, in connection with Joseph A. Gilmore and John A. Lyon. From these enterprises he derived much profit, and became a large propietor in several railroads. He was president of the Concord and Portsmouth Railroad from about 1861 to the time of his death. For many years before his death he was president of the national bank located at Hillsborough Bridge, and was interested in its stock. He was also trustee of the Franklin Savings Bank. He took also a deep interest in the management of the prudential and financial matters of the town, occupying many of the official stations, conferred by his fellow-citizens. He was elected one of the selectmen of the town during the years 1849, 1850, 1851, 1854, and 1872. In 1859 and 1861 he represented the town in the House of Representatives in this State. For many years he was a member of the Congregational Church in Franklin, and was one of its most generous supporters.

In 1833 he married Clarissa A., youngest daughter of Captain Ebenezar Blanchard, late of Franklin, who still survives him. To them were born seven children, four of whom were removed in infancy by death. Another, Dr. Timothy G. Kenrick, died in Naples, Italy, January 29, 1879. He was born July 8, 1849; graduated at Dartmouth College in 1871; studied the medical profession, graduating at the Bellevue Hospital Medical College, New York, June 1, 1874. With much enthusiam he applied himself to the study of insanity, and to the best mode of treating and managing those affected with this unfortunate disease. His mild temper and great power of self-control, united with his skill and learning, gave him signal success in this deaprtment of his profession. He was fortunate in early securing the patronage and friendship of Dr. I. W. Barstow, the eminent manager of the Sandford Hall Asylum, at Flushing, N. Y. He had the full confidence of Dr. Barstow, and was employed by him, to the mutual advantage of both parties, up to 1876, when Dr. Kenrick was called into a larger sphere of duties as assistant surgeon in the New York State Lunatic Asylum, at Utica. It is enough to say that his success here met the expectations of his friends, and that his professional attainments commanded the respect and confidence of his associates and the managers of that institution. His life was sacrificed to the malarial climate of Naples while, in devotion to duty, he was traveling for the benefit of the health of one of his diseased and wealthy friends, who was very wisely committed to his professional care. His early, premature death brought extreme sorrow to the hearts of his parents and his many friends, who had witnessed his progress and reasonably indulged high hopes of his future success in life. The lamentation over his loss at home was most sincere. Abroad " he was by strangers honored and by strangers mourned."

Of the two surviving children, Stephen, the eldest, many years since removed to the West, where he has been extensively engaged in various railroad enterprises. We find him now in Wisconsin, married, but without children, and prosperous in other respects, enjoying the income of the office of general superintendent of the Fort Madison and Northwestern Railroad. He is cheerful, and apparently enjoys life well.

The remaining child is a son, in the full vigorof life, under the name of Charles C. Kenrick, now very active, doing the labor of two men, being extensively engaged in building houses, barns, stables, shops. As a farmer, raising more hay and corn than any other person in town, improving largely, by judicious cultivation, his lands; selecting good breeds of cattle and horses, and increasing their number; giving promptly a fair day's pay to a fair day's labor, thus rewarding a large number of laborers, and expending profitably a good amount of capital daily; improving the condition of his estates, and augmenting the wealth of the town. We might here also, with propiety, refer to the extensive traffic in wood and lumber recently carried on by him, not without profit.

During the long life of his father, Charles has enjoyed the benefit of his advice, and followed it. Thereby he gained his father's confidence, and before his death he received from him the conveyance of a large estate, under the sole obligation to render all needed aid to his aged mother in sickness and in health. This obligation his kind nature prompts him to obey to her entire satisfaction.

We now leave the history of the children and again refer briefly to that of the father. While Mr. Kenrick was a citizen of Franklin we found him interested and well informed in the important interests of the town, State and nation. He had leisure, and opportunity to inform himselfso as to discharge intelligently his own private trusts and duties, as well as those belonging to the good citizen. His knowledge and experience, acquired by him in trade, banking and railroad affairs, were of much value to himself and useful to others. We have already alluded to his great ability in acquiring and retaining successful a large estate. We must not forget to give due credit to a diligent help-meet, in the name of his wife, who brought to him a considerable pecuniary inheritance that descended from her paternal estate. This inheritance, comin down from a worthy ancestry, would, of course, be highly appreciated. It constituted a valuable accession to the estate, now constantly increasing through the harmonius action, kind care and economy of both husband and wife. It is an acknowledged fact that the accumulation of property generally requires much patience and great mental resources; but a critical world tells us that a wise appropriation or disposition of a large estate requires the exercise of still more sagacity, good judgement and wisdom.
