The Anglo-Saxon name Partyngson comes from the family having resided in the region of Partington. Partyngson 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.

Early Origins of the Partyngson family

The surname Partyngson was first found in Cheshire at Partington, a township, in the parish of Bowdon, union of Altrincham, hundred of Bucklow. [1] The place name dates back to at least 1220 when it was first listed as Pattingham. Literally, it means "homestead of the family or followers of a man called P(e)atta," from the Old English personal name + "inga" or "ing" + "ham." [2] "This surname is well known in South Lancashire." [3]

"The Partingtons are best represented in the Manchester district. There is a Cheshire township thus called. There are also Partingtons in Worcestershire." [4]

Migration of the Partyngson family

In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Partyngsons to arrive on North American shores: Hugh Partington who settled in Maryland in 1697; James, John, Richard and William Partington all arrived in Philadelphia between 1814 and 1856.
