Henry Edward Kendall junior (1805-85) was a pupil of his father of the same name, who designed hospitals and workhouses and lived to be 98. Before the son went into independent practice, the two worked together and both were founder-members of what became the RIBA. He designed some large country houses, including one for the exiled Empress Eugénie at Farnborough, Hampshire, as well as parsonages, schools (on which he produced a book of designs) and churches. Among these was the chapel of the County Lunatic Asylum, later St Francis Mental Hospital, near Haywards Heath. He was District Surveyor for Hampstead from 1844 and in his final years was assisted by his nephew, Frederick Mew.
