Progenitors

It has not been possible to incorporate all the native Bendings into one line and there are about 50 Bendings shown as progenitors but it is felt that with one exception they probably belong together. Over 80% of Bendings are descended from Robert Bending born about 1530 at Payhembury, Devon.

 

The progenitors of some families who are connected to Bendings by marriage are included in the tables. The table below shows those progenitors with 10 or more descendants and the table on the next page those with less than 10 descendants

Henry numbers are shown on the right, in green italics
