The ancestry of the name Lenthul dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the chapelry of Lenthall found in the parish of Aymestrey in the county of Hereford.

Lenthul Early Origins



The surname Lenthul 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]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Lenthul, or a variant listed above: George Lentall settled in Virginia in 1637; Rowland Lentall settled in Nevis in 1663; Christopher Lentall settled in Philadelphia in 1749; Barbara Lentill settled in Virginia in 1650.
