Bentley Genealogy & History

Bentley is an ancient locational Anglo-Saxon name, referring to one of many towns of the same name in Derbyshire, Essex, Hampshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Suffolk, Warwickshire and Yorkshire. Variations include Benedlage, Benedledge, and Benetlea, deriving from the Old English "beonet" meaning bent-grass and "leah" meaning clearing. Bentley family history shows them having a family seat (feudal manor) in Yorkshire prior to 1066. The first Bentley record was in Derbyshire in 1176 and spelled de Benetlega. The Bentley motto is "viva ut vivas" meaning "live that you may live". American Bentley genealogy traces back to the original first permanent settlement, Jamestown, in 1607.
