English: locative name from Pembridge (Herefs), which is recorded as Penebrug(g)e from the 11th to 14th centuries. The place-name derives from an Old English personal name * Pena + Old English brycg ‘bridge’. In some cases the surname may be from Pen Bridge in Shipley (Sussex), which derives from an uncertain first element + Old English brycg.
