The name Pardent came to England with the ancestors of the Pardent family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the Norman given name Partant.

Pardent Early Origins



The surname Pardent was first found in Cumberland at Parton, a township, in the parish of Moresby, union of Whitehaven, Allerdale ward above Derwent. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Now part of Cumbria, this seaside village sometimes called Parton Bay was used by the Romans, who had a fort on north of the present village. Parton is also found in Kirkcudbrightshire Scotland, and in Gloucestershire but it is generally believed that the aforementioned village and parish has the strongest evidence of the family heritage. But early records have the name scattered throughout Britain: Adam of Peron in the Assize Rolls of Wiltshire in 1249; Robert Perton in 1249; and John Parton in the the Assize Rolls of Warwickshire in 1377.

Pardent Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Pardent family name include Parton, Partin, Partone, Partant, Pardon, Pardant and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Pardent family to immigrate North America: Robert Partin who settled in Virginia in 1609; eleven years before the "Mayflower"; Robert and Margaret Partin settled in Virginia with their three children in 1624.
