Papwrothey Early Origins

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name Papworth was first referenced in the year 1208 with Elena Papworth, In 1311 Walter de Pappeworth was mentioned for his participation for his county.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Papwrothey or a variant listed above: Robert Papworth settled in Maryland in 1658; while another branch established themselves in Philadephia during the 1700's.
