In 1792 Edmund Pendleton wrote the chronology of his family on the blank pages between the Old and new Testaments of his great family Bible. From time to time he made additional entries, and after his death other entries were made in various hands by persons unknown.

from "Some Prominent Virginia Families," Vol II-IV, Chapter X., pp. 224: "Three miles from Manchester, in County Lancashire, England, is the town of Pendleton, known as a portion of Salfordborough. Over the door of one of the inns swings the arms of the Pendleton family, exactly like those brought to the America by the emigrant, Philip Pendleton. Some little distance off is the manor house, occupied still by a family of Pendletons, and around the old church are the tombs of the departed Pendletons. Here we pause, feeling ourselves aliens in our father's house. Under that roof truss are the records that would carry us back along the line of English history until we found the ancestor whose bravery in the Crusades, won him the right to place upon his shield the silver pilgrim's shells, which form a distinctive feature of the coat-of-arms. The family evidently belonged to English gentry, a purer and prouder distinction oftentimes than many of the titles which have changed hands and family names many times as they come down the avenue of ages."

Judge Edmund Pendleton of Virginia, in his Family Chronology of 1792 stated that "About the year 1674 Nathaniel Pendleton, a Minister, and Philip Pendleton, a school master, sons of Henry Pendleton of the City of Norwich, co. Norfolk, in England, came thence to Virginia in America......In 1469 Thomas Pendleton was living in Lancashire, in which county he held lands; at the same time were two brothers, William and Robert Pendleton, who were probably his sons. Another member of the family was the Rev. Henry Pendleton (1521-1557), who may have been a brother of George Pendleton, Sr., who lived in the town of Pendleton during the reign of King Henry VII. (1485-1509). Thomas Pendleton, who died in 1534, was a nephew of the Rev. Henry Pendleton; he had five sons:

George, Edward, etc......George Pendleton, Esq., Sr., of the town of Pendleton, was living in the reign of King Henry VIII. (1509-1547)."

  * LDS 

Philip, born March 26, 1654 in Norwich, England, and baptised April 2, 1654 at St. Peters in Mancroft, traveled to Virginia in 1674 with a 5 year indenture contract. He was a teacher prior to arriving in Virginia, and it is assumed he was a tutor in Virginia. Philip lived in Rappahannock County and later in Essex, then in King and Queen County. When his 5 year contract was up, he returned to England. He may have married a "lady of high position" who died within a year. His father, Henry, Jr. died in 1682, and Philip returned to Virginia that same year. Philip married Isabella Hurt in 1682. From this union, all of the early Pendletons were descended. In 1687, Philip signed a deed in Essex County, giving King and Queen County as his residence. His eldest son, Henry, signed a deed in Essex County in 1719, giving the same address as his residence.
