PENDRY Family HistoryRecorded as Pendre, Pendrey, Pendred, Pendrid, Pendrod, Pindred, Pindrid, and others, this unusual name is usually considered English, but is arguably of early medieval Welsh origin. It is claimed to be one of the patronymic forms of the male personal name "Henry", and if so is a fusing of the Welsh patronymic prefix "ap" meaning 'son of' and the same as the Scottish-Irish 'Mac' with "Henry" to create Penry, Pendre, Pendry and thence Pendred and the other variants. The given name Henry was introduced into England by the Norman-French after the famous Conquest of 1066 but in the spelling of 'Henri'.
