Padmoor Early Origins



The surname Padmoor was first found in Worcestershire, at Pedmore, now a residential suburb of Stourbridge in the West Midlands. Pedmore Hall still stands today. Pedmore Manor was held by Turgar in the time of Edward the Confessor. It appears in the Domesday Survey as one of the possessions of William Fitz Ansculf and was listed there as Pevemore. Records of 1176 show the spelling as Pubemora. The place name literally meant "marsh of a man called Pybba" from the Old English personal name + mor. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Giffard 'de Pebmore' was probably the first record of the name as he appeared on a deed dated c. 1179-1189. Philip de Pedmore, appears as a witness to an inspeximus charter of the borough of Halesowen in the latter part of the reign of Henry III and somewhat later date in which he is termed 'Philip lord of Pedmore.' It is thought he died before 1292, when 'the lady of Pebmore,' probably his widow, held the manor.
