The surname is most likely a habitation name derived from the place named Pendle Forest, Lancashire.

Pentill Early Origins



The surname Pentill was first found in Hertfordshire at Pendley, a rarely referenced village near Tring. The village dates back to about the 4th century and is home to Pendley Manor which dates back to about the same time. According to legend, the ancient manor was ceased by William the Conqueror and passed to his brother in law, Robert, Earl of Moretain. From that early reference, it passed through many hands having many restorations to become a hotel and conference center today. As far as the surname is concerned, one of the first listings of the ancient name was in Leicester where Richard Pendorayl was first listed in the year 1253 on the list of Seals given to the Knights of Leicester.
