The founding heritage of the Palframyn family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Palframyn comes from when one of the family worked as a person who worked as the palfreyman, who was in charge of the palfreys. This occupational surname was first derived from the Old French word parfrement which referred to the individual who saddled horses for women. The term palfrey usually referred to the most expensive and highly-bred types of riding horse during the Middle Ages.

Palframyn Early Origins



The surname Palframyn was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the census rolls taken by the ancient Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Palframyns to arrive in North America: Peter Palfrey, who was on record in Massachusetts in 1624; John Palfrey, who arrived in Cambridge, MA in 1658; Jonathan Palfrey, a bonded passenger, who arrived in Barbados in 1698.
