The name Pagenam is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the parish of Pakenham found in the county of Suffolk. This place-name was a habitation name which denoted where the Pagenam family held their land. The original bearers of the Pagenam surname took their name from the parish where they dwelt, so that they could be identified whenever they moved from their original dwelling place.

Pagenam Early Origins



The surname Pagenam was first found in Suffolk at Pakenham, a village that dates back to Saxon times when it was first listed as Pakenham c. 950. By the Domesday Book of 1086, the village was listed as Pachenham [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and literally meant "homestead or village of a man called Pacca," from the Old English personal name + "ham." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Pagenams to arrive in North America: George Pakenham settled in Virginia in 1643.
