This profile is part of the Martindale Name Study.



  • First is to compare and complete all lines of descent from the Martindales that originated here in the United States, either through traditional geneaology or DNA confirmation.
  • Second, complete each line that would descend from one or several different Martindale ancestors that arrived in the U.S.
  • Third is to eventually go from the U.S. into other countries where the surname is on record, such as England and Barbados. Once there, research the surname as much as possible and obtain as many sources we can on births, marriages and deaths so that we can tie them into what we already know about the Martindale's in the U.S. and hopefully, go back in time to even earlier periods of existence.


  • Adding this one name study category to particular Martindales of interest here in the U.S. dating back to when they arrived in the U.S. for the first time.
  • Cleaning up or just adding to the bios of Martindale profiles that need some attention.
  • Think about adopting orphaned Martindale profiles. Click on "Find" at the top of your profile and then click "Orphaned Profiles".
  • Adding the life stories of Martindales of interest on this page and showing their lines of descent.
  • Sourcing all information as required. Original sources are best, but derivative ones are acceptable.
  • Attempting to use those sources to aid in the creation of a "true story" based on the factual evidence.
  • Scouring the internet for photographs of Martindales on genealogical websites and the like to add to the bios. If you have a photo that pertains to a Martindale in any way and are interested in sharing, this is the perfect place to do it! I will be doing that also with my photos, in the hopes it helps others like myself tie up the loose ends or break through the brick walls.

If there is anyone that can trace their ancestry to a Martindale family with DNA and you are willing to share the results, please share it and feel free to link it to this page. You can find that under the DNA category on your profile page, located in the drop down menu.

Martindale COA

As it pertains to the Coat of Arms above, this article is an interesting read on Family Crests, Coats of Arms, and how it was not something everyone had throughout history as some may think. Obtaining a COA was a lot more difficult than it may seem today. I added it for fun, as I am still unsure if the Martindale's obtained their own authentic COA. This Wikipedia article is about the Wolf "blazon" on the Martindale Coat of Arms and what it means.

Martindale is the name of an old Cumberland family dating back to the 14th century, and holding much property in that shire up to the 17th century and later.[1] The name Martindale is Anglo-Saxon in it's origin. It is a surname that was first found in Westmorland, now Cumbria. A small township or district called "Martindale" is within Westmorland. The valley of Martindale lies close to Deepdale Beck and Patterdale.[2]

From the book Beggarman, Spy The authors, David Chacko and Alexander Kulcsar compare General George Washington's family to the Martindale family...The families were similar in more ways than one. The Martindales were also a collection of planters and patriots, as mobile and opportunistic as His Excellency's family was fixed. The history of the Martindale family in the New World follows a shifting route that is direct in only one sense, the search for wealth. Their passage also typifies a route of emigration to the American mainland that is little known. Far from being religious seekers, poor and driven, the Martindales came to the American mainland as established patrician settlers. The Martindale family that settled in Maryland had ties to General George Washington's family. The families did business together that involved purchases of land. Another line of the Martindale family had settled in Barbados and became wealthy sugar cane plantation owners.

Martindale, Texas is a city in the Austin metropolitan area of the state of Texas.

Martindale was established in 1855 by Nancy Martindale, who moved to Texas from Mississippi in 1851 and donated land for the townsite. John Crayton, his son James Lasater Crayton and their slaves moved to the banks of the San Marcos River in what is now downtown Martindale in 1839. On January 8, 1852, John Crayton sold the land to George Martindale that Nancy Martindale later donated for the town of Martindale. John Crayton moved to the Republic of Texas from Marion County Alabama but was born and married in Franklin County, Tennessee. He also donated the land for the Martindale City Cemetery. John Crayton lived in Martindale until his death in 1873.[4]

Martindale Hall

One of the very first health food stores in the United States was founded by Thomas Martindale in 1869 as "'Thomas Martindale Company'" in Oil City, Pennsylvania. Martindale's is known as the oldest health food store in the United States and is still independently owned, although it is no longer owned within the Martindale family.

Thomas Martindale

In 1875 Thomas Martindale moved the store to Philadelphia, and in 1920, to 10th and Filbert Streets. The move was heavily influenced by the new interest in health and wellness in the 1930s. The store manufactured their own coffee substitute made from dried figs called "Figco". Healthy foods were sold in the lunchroom, with all baked goods being sweetened with honey or maple syrup. Eventually the store evolved into what is known as Martindale's Natural Market which is still in existence today in Springfield, Pennsylvania.

The Only Story We Have

There is always a family story, a tale that is told and passed down from generation to generation about how our ancestors made their way to America. Each family has a different story. Sometimes, they change. Sometimes, they are embellished. Sometimes, over the years the information becomes muddied. By the time it reached the 6th or 7th generation it wasn't the same story as told originally. We all have that story.

This is the story of the several Martindale family lines. The original author of this story was named Wilfred Martindale. He was an attorney in West Milton, Ohio. The date he first put this story down into writing and shared it was approximately April 1965. (New England History and Genealogical Register. "Early Inhabitants of Barbados", Vol. 39, page 137.) Many Martindale genealogists have this same information about the earliest known Martindales that traveled to the New World.

______________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________________________


Barbados is an island that belongs to the chain of islands in the Caribbean. It was inhabited a thousand years ago by what is now considered the "natives". The Europeans discovered it in the 1500s. Portugal and then Spain arrived to the island and did nothing but take the natives as slaves back to Spain.

England was able to claim it as their own. In the 1620s, Barbados became a part of the English colonies in the New World. For two decades (1640-1660), thousands flocked to the island. Something to ponder.....the majority of English that traveled to Barbados were indentured servants. For the cost of their passage to the island, they traded 5 years of labor. Upon being released from their service, they would receive 10 lbs of goods or money. If they arrived before the mid 1630s, they even received a small bit of land to call their own.

When Barbados gave up tobacco to the state of Virginia, it took up the growing and production of sugar. It became the number one sugar producer out of all the English colonies and stayed that way for close to 200 years. [5]

One patriarch of the Martindales would end up in Barbados, cashing in on the sugar trade that was abundant back then.

"The earliest recorded history of Martindales is Cumberland, Westmorland and Yorkshire, England. How or why they went to Bristol, England is unknown.

In 1642, two men named Robert Yoeman and George Boutcher tried to surrender the town of Bristol to the King's army during a reformation against the King. Robert Yoeman was killed, leaving a widow and their 3 children: Ann, Margaret and William.

In 1647 George Fox began the preachings that later became the doctrine of the Quakers. Two of his followers were John and Edward Martindale. George Fox would eventually marry Ann Yoeman. Edward would marry Margaret Yoeman. (these are two of Robert Yoeman's children listed above). The widow of Robert Yeoman (her first name is not known) remarried to a Thomas Speed who had multiple shipping interests.

In 1656 George Fox and John Martindale were placed in jail. When they were brought to court, there were no charges against John Martindale, but he refused to remove his hat in the presence of the magistrate and consequently he was fined forty pounds and remained in jail. (There were no laws against Quakers at this time...such laws passed in 1660).

After about a year, John was released and he immediately fled to Holland in 1659. After Charles II was restored to the throne, Ann Yoeman Fox was rewarded with land in the colonies. Edward Martindale was also a merchant by that time and began trading with the colonies through Thomas Speed's ships. At some point, Edward took some land in the colonies for a debt he was owed. The story goes that he came to America and drowned in Boston Bay in 1671.

Back in England, Edward's two sons; Isaac & Robert, remained there and continued the shipping interests. The laws of the day were that in the absence of a will, all land went to the eldest son. The brothers had an agent at the southern tip of Maryland to act on their behalf. In 1705, Isaac sent power of attorney to their agent, John Washington, (George's father) for the purpose of recording the deed in accordance with the requirements of digging some dirt, breaking a twig, and returning it to the land office. John Washington had come to the colonies in 1675 and was now 72 years old and too feeble for such a task. So in 1706, Isaac sent a new power of attorney to a new agent to follow the proper procedures. This deed is recorded in Maryland.

Meanwhile, John Martindale in Holland became a government official, and due to his reform beliefs was asked to leave. He left Holland with one slave and his personal belongings coming to the colonies in 1670. He came to St. Mary's, Maryland. On the boat was an Ann Tucker. (no further records are of Ann, so John probably married her the same year). John had to serve two years in the local Militia for his passage to the New World.

John Martindale had two sons, Samuel born about 1671 or 1672 and John, born 1676. Son John went to Bucks County, Pennsylvania and is the John Martindale, Cordwainer of Philadelphia written of by another genealogist, Rev. Harry H. Martindale. John is the patriarch of many Martindale descendants today.

The father, John Martindale's estate was settled in 1693 being administered by his second wife's husband. The estate's accounting is in pounds of tobacco including a debt he owed a merchant in Plymouth. No heirs are mentioned. Son Samuel remained in Maryland as a merchant. He could not be a Quaker because of his participation in the Talbot County Militia in a rebellion against Lord Baltimore. While serving as Ensign, he obtained 50 acres of land on the Choptank River from a Sargent. The procedure of transation of that day was, Samuel was obligated to turn over one year's crop to the Governor, and the Governor would sell the Sargent virgin land. Church records in Maryland show Samuel's third daughter was baptized in the established Whitemarsh Church with the other two entered later. His eldest of five sons, Henry received the 50 acres on his passing and the remaining family moved to Caroline County. (Original Editor's note: presumably this is Caroline Co., Maryland)

Samuel would have 3 grandsons; William, Samuel and Daniel and all served in the Revolutionary War. The last of their service was in North Carolina under General Greene at the Battle of Guilford Court House.

.John Martindale II - He was born approx. 1638 in the West Indies. He was the patriarch whose family traveled to Barbados and owned sugar plantations. According to records, he was the son of John Martindale I and Anna Williams. His Will was dated 1674 and probated in 1675. Before 1652 he married, but her name is unknown. His Will indicated that his son, John III was one of the two elder sons, (John III and William) of the 4 sons, total. All boys were under the age of 16 in 1674. This meant that all 4 boys were born in or after 1658 all the way up to John's death in 1674.[6]

This Will left his land in Barbados to his two eldest; John III and William. The terms of the Will were subject to payment of 10,000 Ibs of sugar to each son for his education at age 16 and 30,000 Ibs of sugar to each of the two younger sons. These younger sons were Isaac who appears to have been a sugar merchant and relocated to Newport, Rhode Island where he became a prominent part of society. James, the youngest, remained in the Barbados. He continued to produce sugar.

In 1674, John II was fined 500 Ibs of sugar for twice failing to appear at the annual muster of Barbados Militia (source given for this was given as "Sufferings of the Quakers" by Jos.Besse) This tells us that he apparently was a Quaker. After his death, his unknown wife perhaps did not raise her sons as Quakers. Eliza (maiden name not known) was the widow of William Martindale (one of the eldest sons) and ended up staying in Barbados as she and William become the ancestors of many Martindales still in Barbados today.

Early Martindales in America: John Martindale

The most notable is John Martindale. His father, John Martindale and mother, Ann Tucker Martindale also came to America. Mary Bridgeman Martindale was John Martindale's wife. They were not married until after their arrival from England to Pennsylvania, in 1705.[7]

Interestingly, Mary Bridgeman's parents, Walter Bridgeman and Blanche Constable Bridgeman also were travelers to America, aboard the same ship in 1682. For reasons unknown, both of Mary's parents died within a year of one another. According to record, Mary was born in 1687 in Bucks County, PA.[8] Her mother, Blanche died in early 1688 followed by Walter in late 1688. And, Mary was just a baby.

Mary had a "trustee" of sorts. Her trustee, Nicholas Walne deliberated with the Quakers or also known as the Society of Friends during the session of a Middletown Men's Minutes in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, where it is also recorded. A man named John Penquite (who is said to be a "servant" of sorts) to the Bridgeman family, was given the duty of taking care of Mary after the deaths of both parents[9] The decision for Mary to remain in John's care was made and granted. The particulars of how long she was in his care are unknown to me.

On her 18th birthday, Mary received a Bible which is shown below.[10]

Mary Bridgeman's Bible

In the Bible is a record of John and Mary's children:[11]

'William' was born on 2 Oct 1707 and died a few weeks later on 19 Oct 1707.[12]See additional sources for more information on the first William. [a second reference for William Martindale (first son) is listed under "see also" section]
'Thomas' was born on 24 Sep 1708 and died after 1720.
'Ann' was born on 16 Nov 1709 and died 10 Jun 1714.[13]
'Mary' was born on 22 Dec 1711 and died on 10 Sep 1714.
'Alabrethe' was born 6 Jul 1715 and died in 1716.[14]
'Elizabeth' was born in 1716 and also died in 1716.[15]
'Hannah' (her birth date is unknown, some records say birth year is 1717.) [Hannah was buried in 1719 according to the Quaker Monthly Meeting. John and Mary are listed as her parents in this document.]
'John' was born in 22 Jun 1719 and lived into adulthood until his death in 1782.[16]
'Rachel' was born in 1719 and died in 1740 around age 20.[17]
The final child, 'William' (yes, they named another child the same as their first) was born on 30 Aug 1723 and died in 1808.[18]

John and Mary had inherited land in Bucks County, PA from Mary's father, Walter upon his death. The land was first entered by Walter and provided to him by William Penn.[19] [This is also referenced in the "see also" section below] This made sense to me, as the story my family had known didn't exactly coincide with the truth, but for the most part, it was close!

Mary's life had more sadness in it than anything else. I have a difficult time imagining how hard that actually was to endure. I have a new-found respect for them. She died young, only 39 years old on 7 Dec 1726 and was buried two days later, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. John would live another 24 years and died in 1750.[20]Mary and John were one of the first Martindale lines in America. My direct ancestor is their last child named, William, born in 1723. If he hadn't made it, I would not exist (and neither would many other descendants).

Early Martindales in America: William Martindale (1753-1854)

William Martindale was born in 1753 to the last son of John and Mary (stated above), William Martindale and Martha Merrick [21] Born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania he had approx 11 siblings. His family moved from Pennsylvania down to South Carolina while William was still a young boy.

He eventually married Martha Bishop in 1771. They would have approx. 9 or 10 children. He also fought in the American Revolution as a volunteer for the Rangers during the years of 1777 to 1780. He served under Capt. Benjamin Waterford and later he would serve under Captain William Young.

Portrait - W. Martindale (1753-1854)

The most notable battle or skirmish he would participate in was at a place called Ninety-Six in South Carolina serving under General Green.

He owned over 300 acres of land in South Carolina but in about 1802, William left with his family and was a part of a huge migration west to Waynesville, Ohio. He ultimately freed the many slaves he did have, as he became opposed to slavery. By 1834, he moved to Wayne County, Indiana to live with one of his sons.

When he died in 1854, he was over 100 years of age. Living for a century, he had seen many historical events take place for the very young United States. He outlived many of his children, his wife and his parents. It is said that he resided with his son, Moses in Indiana and that was where he passed away. He is buried in Chili, Miami County, Indiana with a headstone and memorial as a Revolutionary War soldier.[22]

Charles W. Martindale (1859-1948)

Martindale is ranked number 34,581 most common surname in the world, as of 2014.[23] In the U.S. approximately 8,000 people had this surname. The second country that is most populated by the surname, Martindale is England. The country where the surname is most prevalent based on density is Barbados. This makes sense, as some of the earliest Martindales recorded immigrated to Barbados in the early 1600s.[24]

Surname Variants

The surname Martindale has various spellings. There are cases of true variants where the name was actually correctly spelled but differently than today. Others were deviants that were actually incorrectly marked by transcribers, census takers, even the people themselves made spelling errors.

Hi! Nice work on your Martindale pages! I added text to the companion category for your name study (Category:Martindale Name Study). Feel free to edit it. The default for the template is to add the main category, but you can add a line to have a different category. See the ONS template page for details. Give me a holler if you have any questions about categorization.

Cheers, Liz
