Peneyston Early Origins



The surname Peneyston was first found in South Yorkshire at Penistone, a market town and civil parish in the Metropolitan Borough of Barnsley. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Pengestone. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

By 1199, the place name was known as Peningeston. The name probably meant "farmstead by a hill called Penning," from the Celtic "penn," meaning hill + the Old English "-ing" + "tun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
