Below is what I found out about the Surname posted on several websites.
There are two possible sources of the Bendell name, The first being that it is a diminutive or patronymic form of a Germanic personal name, which derives from the Latin 'bene', meaning well or good, with the intrusive 'del' denoting the 'son of' or 'little'. The name is well recorded in Germany, the earliest being the marriage of one Paulus Bendel and Barbara Strickerin, on September 29th 1524 at Bayern, and in Belgium in the late 19th Century, with the christening of Joannes Alphonsius Bendel, on April 24th 1874 at Zelgate, Oose, Vlaanderen. However, it may also be that Bendel is one of the variant spellings of Benthall, a locational name originating in a place so called in Shropshire, which derives from the Old English pre 7th Century 'beonet', bentgrass and 'halh' a nook or hidden place. The earliest recording of this name is of an original member of the notable family who still live on the ancestral estate to this day. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Anfrid de Benthall, which was dated 1120, in the Shropshire Charters, during the reign of King Henry 1, known as 'The Lion of Justice', 1100-1135. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
Bendell begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the county of Salop (Shropshire), where the Bendell family took their name from the parish of Benthall, near Much Wenlock. References to the family name in this area date back to the 12th century. Benthall Hall is a 16th century English country house is located there, a few miles from the historic Ironbridge Gorge. The Hall was built around 1580, on the site of an earlier 12th century medieval manor and manor house. It proudly retains much of its fine oak interior, and an elaborate 17th century staircase. Moreover, it is still occupied by the Benthall family, but has been owned by the National Trust since 1958. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Benthall, a village in Northumberland> about 6 kilometers south east of Bamburgh.
