Per Wayne Olsen:
From "The Kelloggs in the Old World and the New", by Timothy Hopkins,Sunset Press and Photo Engraving Co., San Francisco, 1903:
Nicholas, the first Kellogg whose name is found in the public records of England, was born about 1488, as is shown in his deposition in1548... Where he came from, or if his ancestors had lived for many generations in Essex Co., is not known. He was in Debden, and was a witness to the will of William Hall (whose daughter he married), 4 Oct1515.
In 1525 he and William Kellogg were taxed in the earliest Subsidy Returns for Debden now found. From this time until his death in 1558, his name appears at various times in the tax rolls. The names of all his children are not known as he did not mention them in his will, and the earliest entries in the parish register are in the year of his death. TheManorial Court Rolls indicate that he had at least two sons, William and Thomas. From the frequency of the name in the registers of Debden, it would seem to have been the home of several Kellogg families, and the similarity of Christian names of Kelloggs in neighboring parishes a generation later, indicates that all were descended from the Debden family.
The descent of property from William Hall to the son and greatgrandson of Nicholas Kellogg may be traced by the wills of Wiliam and Alice Kellogg and the rolls of the Manorial Court of Debden.
