The name Paice arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Paice family lived in Cheshire. The name, however, is a reference to Pacy Sur Eure, in Evreux, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Paice Early Origins



The surname Paice was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very early times. This surname is so old that they were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad.
