Hi there other Pestridge's...
Just want to start this Pestridge genealogy board rolling, to say we are a UK Pestridge family interested in our family history, how the Pestridge name came about, and far around the globe Pestridge's have spread! We are Tim and Vanessa, Toby, Graham & Jenny Pestridge based in Devon, UK.
The biggest concentration of Pestridge's seems to be in the West Midlands of England, where my father, Graham Neil Pestridge was born (Birmingham), and many other Pestridge families are still settled. A quick glance through a Midlands phone book will confirm quite a few Pestridges, compared to a quick search through our South West of UK (Exeter) phone book, where we are the only Pestridge family!
So, if you want to trace your family history, post a Pestridge message or find out when the first Pestridge landed in the USA (I'd love to know that one!) then post it here.
