Pendrill Family History Society: About the Society

About the Pendrill Family History Society

The Society was formed in 1982 by a few enthusiasts bearing the name Pendrill or its derivatives, or who have descended through the female line. The Society is dedicated to researching family trees, and to establishing our lineage back to the five brothers who lived and worked at Boscobel House in Shropshire, and concealed King Charles II after his defeat at the battle of Worcester in 1651.

The Society now has about 100 members living in many parts of the world: England, Scotland, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Under the direction of our Acting Research Coordinator, 16 years of research has revealed much to help us build up our family trees, although some lines are still incomplete. All known Pendrills have now been recorded, and this year we have transferred our entire family tree information to computer disc, which is available to members. It will be updated as new information comes to light. Discs can be obtained from:
