I was just wondering;
Does anybody know how the name Ralph Pendlebury came about? Such as what inspired the naming ect.? The reason I ask is because Pendlebury is not a common name by any strech of the imagniation. Infact, it's the name a small suburb in Manchester, the United Kingdom. Infact it's where I live.
I'm starting to think that maybe the officer Ralph Pendlebury was named after my little town here. That sounds a long shot at first but, there are awful lot of British references in the game, and also Maccer in the game, who says several things like "This looks like salford" (Pendlebury is a suburb in Salford) and makes many other references to Manchester, Salford and the surrounding area.
It makes me wonder if Officer Ralph Pendlebury was named after Pendlebury (Swinton / Pendlebury) the place where I live, because if it was that would be just ubar cool. Are one or more of the games main developers British / Mancunian or anything?

From what I found so far the name is just pure made up, digging thru back stories of the whole GTA time line I cant find anything at all (except hes dead now lol). But of course Iam not done looking, if and when anything can be found I will find it, or find out what others say is truth..

by the sound of it, one or more of the Rockstar team is from manchester. either that or they got a map of it and looked up all the names of places to refer to... it would be ridiculous if that was a coincidence with all the other references to manchester in there (i mean places in manchester).

Chaotix what information do you have to prove its true? Also please put a little more information into your answers next time.. as for the Pendlebury question? i think that the Rockstar design team, or maybe the head manager has his say and maybe he came from pendlebury i dont know, but in the past few GTA games, there has been a few references to GB..
