The origins of the Paggenman name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from 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 Paggenman family held their land. The original bearers of the Paggenman surname took their name from the parish where they dwelt, so that they could be identified whenever they moved from their original dwelling place.

Early Origins of the Paggenman family


The surname Paggenman 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]

Migration of the Paggenman family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Paggenman family emigrate to North America: George Pakenham settled in Virginia in 1643.
