Biography

Ruth SCHMIDT,[1] states the following:

Captain James BENTLEY of the ROYAL STUART ARMY was captured in the wars with CROMWELL. He died a prisoner in PONTEFRACT CASTLE. His estate was confiscated and his home plundered, but his son, Thomas BENTLEY, had a small estate in his own rights at WOODLESFORD in PARISH of ROSHWELL, WAKEFIELD, YORKSHIRE, ENGLAND. Thomas was married twice. He was a 19th generation descendant of "DREW OF BENTLEY HAYE" the first known BENTLEY (1100 AD) PONTEFRACT is in the county of YORKSHIRE, east of WAKEFIELD and northwest of BENTLEY.

Over the years, many Bentley family "legends" lead back to James and Pontefract Castle. See Bentley Name Study for more information on Bentley History.
