Pauley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Dutch , English


The name Pauley was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. The ancestors of the Pauley family lived in Dorset. The name, however, is a reference to Pavilly, in Seine Maritime, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.


Early Origins of the Pauley family


The surname Pauley was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat at Charlton Marshall, when Reginald de Pavelli was granted the King's lands by King Henry II. Later King John granted Pillington of Norfolk to the Lords of Pavelli, Roger and Thomas. The son, however, Thomas Pavelli or Thomas Pawley still adhered to the King of France in 1204.

Pauley Spelling Variations


It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Pauley are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Pauley include Pawley, Pauley, Paulye, Paulley and others.

Migration of the Pauley family to the New World and Oceana


Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Pauley, or a variant listed above:
