Where did the English Parmley family come from? When did the Parmley family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Parmley family history?


Spelling variations of this family name include: Parmelee, Permele, Parmly, Parmalee, Parmellee, Parmley, Parmallee and many more.

First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they are believed to have been a distinguished branch of the Palmers.
