It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Pankey are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Pankey include: Pankhurst, Panckhurst, Pankcoast, Pancrust, Pancrest, Penkhurst, Penkerst, Pankerst, Pencoast, Pencrust, Pankurst, Pinkhurst, Penckhurst and many more.

First found in Sussex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that county.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Pankey or a variant listed above: Anne Pankhurst, age 16, who was on record in Boston in 1635; Thomas Pankhurst, who settled in Maryland in 1761; Francis Pankhurst, who arrived in Virginia in 1774.
