Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) after Edward purchased Sandring ham
House. T.M.Kendall also made a number of donations for the improvement
and repair of St.M argarets Church, Kings Lynn.
(notes above from Roger Kendall)

The details of Thomas Kendall and his family come from the 1851, 1861 and
1871 census returns. In 1851 and 1861 the family was living in St. Margarets
Place, in 1871 in St James Street, Kings Lynn.

He was articled to Dr Ingle, formerly of Lynn, then practised for a short time
in Essex, after which he returned to Lynn where he acquired and built up over
twenty years an extensive professional connection.

He was for many years senior surgeon to the West Norfolk and Lynn Hospital
and on the Prince and Princess of Wales entering upon the occupation of
Sandringham, he was selected as the local medical attendant fo their Royal
Highnesses and their houshold, and he held that position up to his death,
much to the satisfaction of their Royal Highnesses.

He was elected an alderman of the Borugh of Lynn, and was also appointed
one of the churchwardens of St. Margaret's Parish. Eminently successful in
his profession, he was personally a warm hearted and charitable man.

(the above is paraphrased from his obituary which appeared in
the Lynn Advertiser, and which was sent me by
Roger Kendall).

In September 1859 Thomas Kendall Marsters enrolled with the King's Lynn
Rifle Corps, providing his own equipment.

He was appointed surgeon to the Administrative Battalion Norfolk Volunteers
on 27th June, 1865 and assistant surgeon to the 5th Corps (King's Lynn) on
4th April, 1867
