Early Origins of the Endesore family
The surname Endesore was first found in Staffordshire where the Edensors were originally found. Many of the family moved to Norfolk where the name was more commonly spelt Ensor and held Rolesby Hall from early times.  Two references claims that Edensor, a village in Derbyshire is also a likely an ancient homestead of the family.   One of the first records of the name was Adam de Ednesovere who was listed in the Assize Rolls in 1247.  The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list Richard de Edensore in Cambridgeshire.

Migration of the Endesore family
To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Endesore family emigrate to North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..
