The origins of the Pindeltons name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the chapelry of Pendleton found in the parish of Eccles in Lancashire. The Pindeltons 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.

Pindeltons Early Origins



The surname Pindeltons 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Pindeltons family emigrate to North America: 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.
