KENDALL’S MILL CAMPBELLTOWN

KENDALL’S MILL CAMPBELLTOWN HERITAGE WALK

Marjorie Kendall suggests that Judith McNally died in Campbelltown. The only connection we have found so far with Campbelltown is with Lawrence Kendall’s Mill. Patrick was a carter at Barker’s Mill in Sussex Street and Lawrence was apprenticed there as a clerk. Lawrence was brother to Basil Kendall. So far we have not found evidence of Judith’s Death or Burial. It does seem likely possible that Patrick was working at the Mill.

Here are some articles relating to Kendall’s Mill Campbelltown.

  • “Fisher’s Ghost Restaurant” or “Kendall’s Mill
    House”
    No. 316 Queen Street, Pt. Por. 33 Parish
    of St Peter DP 77280, Campbelltown.

  • Historic Precinct
    Opposite Big Rooster, at 320 Queen St, is the Campbelltown Art and Craft Society. This building was licensed as the Farrier’s Arms Inn in 1843 and was owned by blacksmith Edward Fitzgerald. Some sources claim the building was originally a grog shop dating back to 1826. It is certain that it was in existence by 1840.

    Next door is Kendall’s Millhouse, now Fisher’s Ghost Restaurant. It was erected adjacent Campbelltown’s first steam-driven flour mill in 1844. Both were built by the uncle of noted 19th-century poet Henry Kendall. The mill closed in the 1880s.

    Virtually opposite is the Campbelltown Community Centre, originally a produce store and bakery dating back to 1853.

    Walk up Queen St to the mall. At number 315 is the old town hall, located on the site of George Worrall’s farm. The building was constructed around the old Temperance Hall (built either in 1862 or 1882 depending on which source one accepts) which the newly-formed municipal council bought, adding the facade and front offices in 1892, the year they also took over the newly-built fire station next door, now incorporated into the structure. These buildings are now used by the Campbelltown Theatre Group.
