Lentill History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Anglo-Saxon name Lentill comes from the family having resided in the chapelry of Lenthall found in the parish of Aymestrey in the county of Hereford.

Early Origins of the Lentill family


The surname Lentill 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]

Lentill Spelling Variations


Lentill has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Spelling variants included: Lenthal, Lentall, Lenthall and others.

Migration of the Lentill family to the New World and Oceana


In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Lentills to arrive on North American shores:
