Baxendale Name Meaning
English (Lancashire): habitational name, probably an altered form of Baxenden, a place near Accrington, which is named with an unattested Old English word bæcstan ‘bakestone’ (a flat stone on which bread was baked) + denu ‘valley’. Middle English dale was sometimes substituted for Old English denu in northern place names.
