Origin of the Name Pender

The Pender family history was found in the archives. Variants of the Irish name Pender include Prendergast, Pendy, Pinder, Pendegrass, Pendergrast, Pendergrass, Prendeville, Penderville, Pendergest and Penderghest. This family dates in Ireland to the Strongbow invasion of the twelfth century when Maurice de Prendergast obtained extensive grants of lands in various parts of the South and West of the country. He was one of the leading Anglo-Norman invaders during this time. His descendants were seated near Waterford and in the southern part of County Mayo, districts in which the name has always been found. In the year 1598 families of the name are listed as being among the leading gentry of Counties Waterford, Wexford, and Tipperary. Notable bearers of the name include John Patrick Prendergast, 1808-1893, who was author of the 'Cromwellian Settlement of Ireland '. Sir Thomas Prendergast, 1660-1709, was a Jacobite who betrayed an anti-Williamite plot.
The Pender coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Pender descendants.
