Families covered: Pembridge of Clehonger, Pembridge of Mansell (Maunsell) Gamage, Pembridge of Pembridge (Pembrugge of Pembrugge), Pembridge (Pembrugge) of Tong, Pembridge of Wellington (Wallington)

(1) This family's name is often spelt Pembrugge or Pembruge. The family probably took its name from Pembridge in Herefordshire. It appears that there was a Pembridge Castle both in Pembridge and (c25 miles away) in Welsh Newton (also in Herefordshire but closer to the border with Wales), the latter formerly being known as Newland Castle. Either we have become confused on this point (which is quite possible) or some of the web sites we have seen that mention Pembridge Castle have sometimes confused them.
(2) As far as we are aware, the early generations of this family have not yet been clarified & confirmed so most of the upper section should be viewed with caution. It appears that there were several early generations of Ralphs and that Henry became a popular name in the family, possibly leading to confusion between sons & nephews.
