    • DEATH & BURIAL: Unable to locate the death or burial record in Chester Monthly Meeting Records in either FHL 20386 or 20388. Perhaps located in the Springfield Monthly Meeting?

      BURIAL: Ancestral file lists burialplace as Concord Township, Chester, Pennsylvania. Also lists deathplace as Springfield, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, however Dauphin County was not formed until 1785.

    9. [S34] Mendenhall Family Association (MFA), ([online] : http://www.mendenhall.org) (Reliability: 3).
      John's surname was spelled variously Mynall, Minall, Mindenhall, Mendinghall and Mildenhall. He bought 300 acres from William Penn on 14 Sep 1681, while still in England, costing 6 per 500 acres. On 6 Feb 1683, Penn requested a survey for this land, which was laid out in Concord Township, John being the first recorded purchaser of land in Concord. His patent is dated 27 Jun 1684.

      It was probably in the autumn of 1682 that John made the voyage to Pennsylvania. There seems to be no record of the ship on which he made passage. It is likely that it sailed from the port of Bristol. It is probable that he was accompanied by his sister, Mary, and his younger brother, Benjamin. He came to Concord Twp in what was then Chester County.

      The Chester County Court was held at the town of Chester on 17 Apr 1683. The court records indicate that John Mynall was a juror and at the same court John Mendinhall was appointed constable for Concord, Liberty Township.

      A note written 6 Jul 1683 to J Harding has been preserved saying:

      "If thou knowest any such man as John Minall, tell him he may expect a small truss of cloth by ye shipp Francis & Mary, also a truss of goods by ye same shipp for Jno. Kingman, both under ye charge Jno. Burns for delivery and of him they must enquire for it when the said shipp comes. (signed) John Hitchcock."

      John Hitchcock of Bristol, England had close contact with the Mendenhall family. In Concord Township, John was a close associate of John Harding. A record of a somewhat later court session of the Chester County court indicates that John Mendenhall and John Harding were accused of selling whiskey to the Indians. It is possible that these young men might have done this as a means of ensuring that the Indians would not steal their hogs.

      John sold 100 acres of his tract to his brother-in-law, Thomas Martin on 27 Nov 1686. John placed the remainder of this tract in a trust for his three young sons on 8 Mar 1692. John continued to enjoy the use of the property until the sons reached their majority and did not prevent him from donating land for the new Concord Meetinghouse, stables, and graveyard on 13 Dec 1697.

      John bought 250 acres in Concord Township from John Harding (who bought the land from William Penn in England in Sep 1681) which was surveyed to Harding on 13 Feb 1683. John's patent is dated 26 Jun 1684. John assigned these 250 acres to his brother, Benjamin, in Jun 1686.

      John was an original shareholder in the Concord Mill, one of five mills in Chester County.

      MENDENHALL, John and Benjamin, were early settlers in Concord, and another brother, Moses, resided there a short time, but returned to England. They also had a sister, Mary, who came over unmarried, and became the wife of Nathaniel Newlin, April 17, 1685, and Margery, who married Thomas Martin, and came with him from England in 1685. They were from Mildenhall, in Wiltshire, which was formerly the family name.

      John married, in 1685, Elizabeth, daughter of George Maris, by whom he had three children,-George, b. 6,14,1686, d. 1758, unmarried; John, b. 4,3,1688, m. Susanna Pierson, 1709; Aaron, b. 9,20,1690, d. 4,30,1765, m. 4,16,1715 to Rose Pierson, sister of Susanna, and daughter of Thomas Pierson. John, Jr. and Aaron settled in East Caln, whence John went to Lancaster County, and finally to Virginia.

      Benjamin Mendenhall married, 2,17,1689, Ann, daughter of Robert and Hannah Pennell, of Middletown, by whom he had ten children,-Ann, b. 3,31,1690; Benjamin, b. 3,5,1691, m. Lydia Roberts, 3,9,1717; Joseph, b. 3,17,1692, m.Ruth Gilpin, 8,30,1718; Moses, b. 2,19,1694, m. Alice Pyle, 4,18,1719; Hannah, b. 6,11,1696, m. Thomas Marshall, 2,24,1718; Samuel, b. 1,28,1697; Rebecca, b. 10,10,1699, m. Thomas Gilpin, 2,21,1726; Ann, b. 7,22,1703, m. John Bartram, 10,11,1729; Nathan, b. 8,16,1705; Robert, b. 7,7,1713, m. 9,13,1734, to Phebe Taylor, 6,23,1762, to Elizabeth Hatton, and 2,6,1777, to Esther Temple.

      Phebe Mendenhall, daughter of Robert and Elizabeth, was born 7,7,1770, m. Gideon Thomas, and died 1,19,1875. Robert had a large number of children, whose descendants are numerous.

      Benjamin Mendenhall was held in good esteem both in his religious society and as a citizen. His sons Benjamin and Moses were both ministers. Joseph, the second son, removed to the west side of Brandywine, and became an active member of Kennet Meeting. He settled on a large tract of land purchased by his father in 1703. His children were Isaac, Hannah, Joseph, Benjamin, Ann, Stephen, and Jesse.

      Of these, Isaac married Martha Robinson, and was the father of Joseph, Isaac, Betty, Thomas, Noah, Benjamin, Martha, Dinah, Aaron, Ruth, and Caleb. He was born 8,13,1719 and died 8,18,1803. his wife died 5,21,1766. Aaron, his son, born 2,20,1760, married Sarah, daughter of Nicholas Woolas, and had children,-Ann, Isaac, Elwood, Hannah (m. to James Trimble), Sarah (m. to Chalkley Way), and Martha.

      Isaac, born 9,29,1806, married Dinah Hannum, 5,12,1831, and has had the following children: Anna (deceased), Aaron, Luther, Sarah (deceased), and Sallie Hannah. Of these, Aaron married Ella Taylor, by whom he had one child, Anna, and his wife dying, he married Hattie Shoemaker, by whom he has two children,- Isaac and Emma. This Aaron resides on the old Mendenhall property, purchased in 1703, part of a thousand acres, beginning on the Brandywine and extending west two and a half miles to the Letitia Penn line, in the shape of a parallelogram. This Mendenhall homestead contains 150 acres, and the house, shown elsewhere, is the third one built, and was erected in 1838. The barn was built in 1796. This homestead and farm is in Pennsbury township, but Aaron's father, Isaac, lives in Kennet township.
