Pardun is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Pardun comes from the Norman given name Partant.

Pardun Early Origins



The surname Pardun 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.

Pardun Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Parton, Partin, Partone, Partant, Pardon, Pardant and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Pardun or a variant listed above: 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.
