PEDLOW family of Counties Armagh, Antrim & Down and abroad
« on: November 17, 2008, 01:44:10 AM »
I have just run across this very useful website and used one of the many interesting links (to the National Archives of the UK) to find an 18th-century family member I had not know about before.  So thanks to all you posters for some great information.

For the past 38 years I have been working on a history of all Pedlows everywhere in the world and have collected a lot of data that I am happy to share with other researchers.  The Ulster origins of the family seem to be in the area between Portadown and Tandragee in County Armagh, with subsequent expansion into Antrim and Down, and of course lots moving to Belfast in the 19th century as well as to Canada, the US, England, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand.  If you have Pedlow (Pedloe, Pedlo, sometimes misspelled Padlow in the US, perhaps because of the accent) ancestors, please let me know.  I am particularly interested in finding copies of old family bibles.

The Pedlow surname itself is a very old one, with the first recorded use in 1188, when Richard and Roger Pedelow were witnesses to an Irish land grant (at a time when most families did not yet have fixed surnames).  The name was originally French, with the original "Pied de Loup" (wolf's paw) changing presumably to Ped de Lowe, then Pedelow/Pedelowe and finally Pedlow.  The Pedelowes/Pedelows appear in a number of medieval records in Ireland (all in the Anglo-Norman "Pale" around Dublin) and London until the late 14th century and then show up again in Ulster as Pedlows in the early 18th century.  I have also found some Pedlows in England in the mid-17th century, so it is quite possible that the family had continued on in England and then returned to Ireland - this time to Ulster - with Cromwell or soon afterward.

Hello Greg,

Welcome to the Forum.

I've no Pedlow connection in my tree but have heard much about the Pedlows of Lurgan. Cliff Morgan mentioned Cecil Pedlow (Queen's University RFC, Ireland and the British Lions) in My favourite tries www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/2394909/My-favourite-tries.html

The Archives section of the Lurgan Rugby Club includes two or three Pedlows.

That's a "One Name Study" in the vernacular.

Are you involved with a Y-DNA surname project? You should create one or persuade people to join an existing one - the information is very useful for a deeper historical perspective.

Hello,
My paternal Great Grandfather was Robert Pedlow Reavey, born circa 1865 in New Zealand.  His parents, John Reavey and Ann Pedlow Reavey, immigrated there from Ireland -- not sure of the year, but heard they lived there for about ten years before moving to the United States in 1871. 
I have no other information to provide at this time.  I'm just starting to search the many branches of my family tree, but it appears that I fit into yours.
Sincerely,
Sherry Smith-Noble

PS. Patricks daughter Martha is my Grandmother.

Patrick Pedlow was my grandfather, my father's name was Desmond Pedlow. My dad never talked about his family so I know very little - I don't even know all the names of my aunts and uncles! The only one I really know is Joe Pedlow.

So, Lee, I suppose that makes Martha my aunt, and you my second cousin :)

Familial regards
Jason Pedlow

Jason,
 
I have much information on the family history dating back to mid 1800s.  I have all the names and most of your cousins names on record.
 
Your father Desmond I believe was in the Royal Marines, is that correct?
If so.. you were one that was not on my radar.  I have been digging into our family history for nearly a year now and have dispelled many myths and stories, to some peoples dismay.
 
I have managed to gain my grandfathers military war records and medals, it has been very informative and worthwhile.
 
I now live in the south of England near Salisbury, I think my mother had been close to your father and had visited Desmond in Portsmouth when she was a child (Dont quote me.. I will check with her)
 
Thank you for contacting me and I hope to hear from you soon.
 
Kind Regards
 
Lee
Thank you

Lee

Hi Lee,

Yes, my dad was in the Marines and lived in Portsmouth until he died. I had not heard of any relatives visiting except for Joe but then it might have happened before I was born or when I was young.

Obviously it would be great if we could exchange info (though I know I will get far more than you from the deal!) so I'll PM you with my email address. I'll also ask my mum if she remembers the visit of your mother but I'll need a name...

I look forward to hearing from you.

Jason

Pedlow - Todd connection:
I was was wondering if anyone has found any TODDs in their PEDLOW family tree?
I have a William PEDLOW Todd in my family and I am surmising that PEDLOW was his mother's, (or other relative's,) Surname. William TODD would have been born prior to 1835. William also named one of his sons "William PEDLOW Todd ". I have been unable to make any connections so far. If anyone can help I'd be very grateful!!

Pedlows used to be the main Crittall window people in Belfast, everyone thought that they were of Italian descent :)

My grandmother was Rachel Pedlow (b 1854) from Cordrain.  Her brother Edward emigrated to the US, lived in new Jersey, married Margaret ? and retired and died in New Orleans - no children.  Her other brother William stayed in Cordrain, was married twice (Rachel ? and Annie Vance), but don't know of any children.
Her father was Edward married to Rachel Hammill, and her Grandfather was Thomas.  I presume they were all from Cordrain, but possibly not.  Has any one any info or connections with them?
