The ancient roots of the Pardington family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Pardington comes from when the family lived in the region of Partington. Pardington is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
