BENT Family HistoryThis very interesting surname, also recorded as Bende, Bint, Bont, and the Cornish-West Country Bunt, is of Olde English or Anglo-Saxon origins. There are a number of possible explanations for the name including the topographical and a derivation from 'beonet', an area of land suitable for grazing. A second explanation is that the name could be occupational and describe either an archer or hunter or more probably a maker of long bows and handles for agricultural implements. Here the development is from 'bend-bow', alos found as the surname 'Benbow'.
