Early Origins of the Saint'paul family
The surname Saint'paul was first found in Picardy (French: Picardie), where this illustrious family held a family seat since ancient times.
One of the first records of the family was John de St. Paul (ca.1295-1362), Archbishop of Dublin, probably a native of Owston in the West Riding of Yorkshire. "He may have been a son of Thomas and brother of Robert de St. Paul, lord of Byram in the same Riding, on whose behalf he obtained from Edward II the remission of fines imposed on Robert for his adherence to Thomas of Lancaster. He was possibly connected with Mary de St. Paul or St. Pol, daughter of the Count de St. Pol, who married Aymer de Valence, earl of Pembroke, and frequently made John de St. Paul her attorney during her absence from England.The family probably came originally from Guienne, and it had many descendants settled in Yorkshire.
