Attested:  RC Cantaventi, Cantiventi, or Cantanenti, depending on how one reads difficult handwriting.

WhereAmbleside Roman fort at NY37250340, at the north end of Lake Windermere. 

Name Origin:  The first part of this name probably meant something like ‘edge’, as discussed under Canza for the two likely roots involved.  For the name ending, see under Venta ‘home place’.

Notes:  This whole area poses difficulties, as discussed at length here, leading to the suggestion that Cantaventi is distinct from Glanoventa.
