An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The west coast of Scotland and the rocky Hebrides islands are the ancient home of the Pannell family. The root of their name is the personal name Payne. Pannell is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Although this interpretation of the etymology of the surname Pannell is uncertain, it is generally accepted at the present time.

Pannell Early Origins



The surname Pannell was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from very early times and 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



Numerous Scottish settlers settled along the east coast of the colonies that would become the United States and Canada. Others traveled to the open country of the west. At the time of the American War of Independence, some remained in the United States, while those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. The highland games and Clan societies that sprang up across North America in the 20th century have helped many Scots to recover parts of their lost traditions. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Pannells to arrive in North America:
