This deed, recorded 20 Dec 1693, is the only record found of Anne thus far (Richmond Co, Records, 1692-1704, p. 99). Thomas KENDALL and his wife, Martha GOFF, were the parents of William KENDALL who later married John Combs' daughter, Elizabeth.
On the same date, John WILLIS of Richmond also sold a tract to Thomas KENDALL described as "being between the land of INDREIN [sic] and Joseph MASON."

This land is further described in a land patent dated 13 Mar 1696/7 by John Combs of Richmond for 200 acres adjacent the land of William YARETT now Mr. TANKARD'S, UNDERWOOD'S line, near "Indian Needs old field."
