Pardum History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Pardum is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Pardum family name comes from the Norman given name Partant.

Early Origins of the Pardum family


The surname Pardum 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.

Pardum Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Pardum has been recorded under many different variations, including Parton, Partin, Partone, Partant, Pardon, Pardant and others.

Migration of the Pardum family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Pardums were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in 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.
