The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Lentel come from when the family resided in the chapelry of Lenthall found in the parish of Aymestrey in the county of Hereford.

Lentel Early Origins



The surname Lentel was first found in Herefordshire at Lenthall. However, later some of the family were found at Yelford-Hastings in Oxfordshire. "This parish, which originally belonged to the family of Hastings, was purchased by Mr. Speaker Lenthall, whose descendant, K. J. W. Lenthall, Esq., is the present lord of the manor." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The same gentleman was later found at Besselsleigh in Berkshire. "Sir Edmund Fettyplace sold [the manor of Besselsleigh], about 1620, to Wm. Lenthall, master of the rolls, and speaker of the house of commons in the Long parliament, from whom it has descended to Kyffin J. W. Lenthall, Esq. The old manor-house was pulled down about fifty years later: Cromwell, who was a frequent visitor, usually concealed himself in a room to which the only access was by a chair let down and drawn up with pulleys. Sir John Lenthall, son and heir of the speaker, and governor of Windsor Castle, was buried in the chancel of the church in 1681." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Lentel Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Lentel has been recorded under many different variations, including Lenthal, Lentall, Lenthall and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Lentel or a variant listed above:
