Francis Fendt

The son of Bernard Simon Fendt (II), Francis, or Frank Fendt was born in London about 1815 and died in about 1856 in Liverpool. Taught by his father, he presumably went to Liverpool to work for the Palmer Brothers, established there as successors to the violin makers James and Henry Banks, the sons of Benjamin Banks of Salisbury. Very little of his work has been identified.
