The lineage of the name Bendell begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the county of Salop (Shropshire), where the Bendell family took their name from the parish of Benthall, near Much Wenlock. References to the family name in this area date back to the 12th century. Benthall Hall is a 16th century English country house is located there, a few miles from the historic Ironbridge Gorge. The Hall was built around 1580, on the site of an earlier 12th century medieval manor and manor house. It proudly retains much of its fine oak interior, and an elaborate 17th century staircase. Moreover, it is still occupied by the Benthall family, but has been owned by the National Trust since 1958. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Benthall, a village in Northumberland about 6 kilometers south east of Bamburgh.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bendell were among those contributors:

Bendell Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Jonah Bendell settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1856

Bendell Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • John Bendell arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "Cromwell" in 1849
