Origins Available: English, Irish


The origins of this surname remain uncertain. According to family lore, it was originally from a place named Brontegeest, near Ghent in Flanders. Form there, Flemish settlers took the name to Normandy, before arriving in Britain with the Norman invasion. The Pendegast family lived in the village of Prendergast in the Welsh county of Pembroke.

Pendegast Early Origins



The surname Pendegast was first found in Pembroke where Philip, son of a bearer of Prenliregast, a follower of the Conqueror was given the lands, which would encompass Prendergast Castle. There has long been a Prenegast family of this name in Berwickshire, which is said to come from these same roots. "Preenhirlegast is generally supposed to be synonymous with Prendergast, which family, soon after the Conquest, held possessions in the county of Pembroke, and at Akild, in Northumberland, which last estate its owners forfeited in 1327, by their adherence to the Scottish party. Maurice, Lord of Prendergast, near Pembroke, was one of the most eminent of Strongbow's companions in the conquest of Ireland. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
