Painchaud is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Painchaud family lived in Devon. Their name, however, is a reference to Pontchardon, in Argentan, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

The surname Painchaud was first found in Devon where Robert de Pontcardon held lands in 1083. He was from Pontcardon (Pontchardon), near Neauffla in Normandy. Almost one hundred years later, William de Punchardon held six fees in Somerset and Devon. [1]

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Painchaud are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Painchaud include Punchon, Puncheon, Punchard, Punshardon, Punshow and many more.
