Early Origins of the Pabody family
The surname Pabody was first found in Durham
, where they held a family seat
. They were most likely one of those rebellious northern English Norman clans which were 'wasted' by Duke William of Normandy
when he took an army of 40,000 north as far as the Scottish border in 1070. Their name appears to have been Pappedae, from a Norman noble who arrived at Hastings with the Duke in 1066. Escaping north into Scotland
their ancient Clan
seat was at Dunglass but they also held estates in Haddington. Their close relationship to the Hume Clan
in these ancient times leads one to believe there was a blood relationship rather than a pact of mutual protection.
