The origins of the Pardoe surname date from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name originated with an early member who was a person who was known for their habitual use of the oath pour Dieu, which is Old French meaning "for God." This is a subset of the nickname type of name known as oath names.

Pardoe Early Origins



The surname Pardoe was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

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 Pardoe or a variant listed above:
