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


The surname Pakingghan 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 Pakingghan family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Pakingghan, or a variant listed above: George Pakenham settled in Virginia in 1643.
