Mendenhall - Minall - Mildenhall connections. Ancestry ifs.

A comment appeared at this site re documentation of Mendenhalls.  Suggest:  Start at the Mendenhall Family Association at  Our last personal foray into ancestry (this is my husband's side; his grandmother was a Mendenhall) was decades ago at a reunion at the Mendenhall Inn, Brandywine Valley, Mendenhall, PA, and Kennett Square.  The Kennet River runs through Mildenhall, Wiltshire, England;  see Kennett Square, PA.  Mendenhall land:  The Mendenhall married a Wilson, land included  at Toughkenamon, Chester County, PA. Understood that the Mendenhall family came over with or contemporaneous with William Penn, but I never went into documentation.  Enjoy!  Easy start, but verify, at  
"JOHN MENDENHALL was born on 30 Oct 1659 in Marridge Hill, Wiltshire, England. He died on 19 Aug 1743 in Newark, New Castle, Delaware.
"He was born with the last name of Mildenhall. When he and his brother Benjamin came to America the spelling was changed to Mendenhall. All their descendants used this spelling."
