    Catherine Kendall (born 1583) was the daughter of Henry Kendall of Smithesby (Smisby today). She married Thomas Babington of Rothley Temple (now Rothley Court Hotel). She had nine children, of which Lucy was the last and was born in 1618. Lucy later married William Whatton of Netwon Linford. The historian, Thomas Babington Macaulay, was a descendant of Catherine, from the sister of a later Thomas Babington.
