After reciting the Inquisition of 30 Edward I, (fn. 9) whereby it was found that Kendal church was in the patronage of the Abbot and Convent of St. Mary's, but that its chapels were in the patronage of Sir Ingram de Gynes, Mr. Caley says that, though the creation and endowment of a vicarage (Kendal) has neither been found nor the date ascertained, there is little doubt to be entertained but that what appears in the General Eccles. Survey made 26 Henry VIII upon this subject, is in conformity with the original endowment. Upon an inspection of this roll under the article "Kendall Vicaria" among other things belonging to the said Vicarage, mention is made of a Pension from the church of Wyndeandermer of 13s. 4d. and a Pension from the church of Grysmer of a like sum of 13s. 4d.
