Pendergast Family History

The following history was recently shared with me by Phillip James Pendergrass, descendant of Philip PENDERGRASS (DE PENDERGRASS), b. ca. 1610 in Ireland, d. aft. 1640 in Charles City Co., Virginia.

"The name Pendergrass is not Irish at all. If you pick up a good book about Irish history, and go to the chapter on the Anglo Norman invasion, you will find that in 1169 there was an invasion launched from Wales by the Normans. The army was led by a man named Strongbow, known as the Earl of Penbroke. One-third of this army was commanded by Maurice de Prendergast. Maurice de Prendergast was a Flemish mercenary that the Normans employed to help control England and Wales.

Maurice De Prendergast continued his military career in Ireland. Eventually he joined the Knights of St John of Jerusalem. He became prior of the order's house at Kilmainham and died there in 1205.

Maurice de Prendergast had a nice role in the invasion and was rewarded with extensive land grants in Wexford and County Mayo for his efforts, thus, the family line extends from there. As I said the name is not Irish but their presence in Ireland over a few hundred years makes them sort of adopted.

Also, a little side note; There is a Prendergast (although it is spelled slightly different) listed on the muster role of William the Conquerer in 1066.

The family shield is well documented, and is correct. It was confirmed to a Jasper Pendergrass in the year 1618 in Wexford. His son Edmund also earned a Knighthood in 1639."
