The Anglo-Saxon name Paggingghan comes from when the family resided in the parish of Pakenham found in the county of Suffolk. This place-name was a habitation name which denoted where the Paggingghan family held their land. The original bearers of the Paggingghan 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 Paggingghan family


The surname Paggingghan 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 Paggingghan family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Paggingghan or a variant listed above: George Pakenham settled in Virginia in 1643.
