The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Pindellton come from when the family resided in the chapelry of Pendleton found in the parish of Eccles in Lancashire. The Pindellton surname was originally derived from the Old English word pendle which means hill. It was also derived from the Old English word ton which refers to a farm or homestead. Therefore the original bearers of the name lived by the farm that was situated on a hill.

Pindellton Early Origins



The surname Pindellton was first found in Lancashire at Pendleton, a small village and civil parish in Ribble Valley which dates back to the Domesday Book where it was listed as Peniltune and literally meant "farmstead by the hill call Penn (Pendle Hill)" having derived from the Celtic word penn (for hill) + tun.

Pendleton is also an inner city area of Salford, Greater Manchester, again historically in Lancashire. For both locations various spellings of the villages were found: Penelton in 1199, Pennelton in 1212, Penilton in 1236, Penhulton in 1331 and Penulton in 1356 before settling on the current spelling about 1600 or so.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Pindellton or a variant listed above: Bryan Pendleton who settled in New England in 1630; Mary Pendleton and her husband settled in Boston in 1679; Otis Pendleton settled in Boston in 1823.
