Families covered: Pemberton of St. Alban's, Pemberton of Peterborough, Pemberton of Trumpington
[This page was originally launched as Pemberton02. It was renamed to allow for a new Pemberton02 to cover what appear to be earlier generations.]

(1) Visitation (Northamptonshire) starts with Jeffrey, father of the Roger who m. Elizabeth Moor, noting that he "came from Whiston in Lancash: and settled at St Albans being descended from the Pembertons of Pemberton Hall in co: Lanc:". However, Visitation (Hertfordshire) shows the parents of the Roger who m. Elizabeth More as Robert & Catherine.
(2) The reference to coming from Whiston suggests that Jeffrey (or Robert) was connected to the Pembertons of Halsnead, some of whom were also of Whiston. Visitation shows arms of the family, quartered with several others (including 3 dragons' heads), as "a chevron between three well-buckets" (colours not clear) which indicates a connection also with the Pembertons of Rushden.

[Part of this page was first launched on 03.07.08 on a Temporary page (55), then being based on Visitation (Hertfordshire) with additions from BLG1886. It was moved here when it was found that Visitation (Northamptonshire) covered the family.]
