Early Origins of the Penhallow family
The surname Penhallow was first found in Cornwall where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Penhallow.
"The principal villages in this parish, besides the church town, are Fraddon, Penhale, and Summercourt. At Penhale, or Pen Haile, [in the parish of St. Enoder] which signifies the head of the moor, are the original fountains or springs of two rivers, which find their way to the sea on the two opposite sides of the county; one discharging its waters at Tresilian, and the other meeting the ocean at Lower St. Columb Porth."  At Sommercourt, September 25th is the date of Penhale Fair, and was originally held at Penhale.
"Penhallow, which was anciently a seat of a family thus named, is now a farm house, the property of their descendant, John Penhallow Peters, Esq. whose seat is at Crigumurrion in this parish. "
