Name Meaning

English (Gloucestershire and Worcestershire): habitational name from Penleigh in Dilton, Wiltshire. The placename probably derives from Old English penn ‘fold, enclosure’, or perhaps Celtic penn ‘head’, + Old English lēah ‘wood, woodland clearing’. It is perhaps also a variant of Pendley . This surname is rare in Britain and Ireland.
