The name Pindletint is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in the chapelry of Pendleton found in the parish of Eccles in Lancashire. The Pindletint 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.

Pindletint Early Origins



The surname Pindletint 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.

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.

Pindletint Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Pindletint are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Pindletint include: Pendleton, Pendelton and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Pindletint 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.
