Paschile History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Paschile is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The Paschile family lived in Essex. The name, however, is a reference to Pasci, in Eure, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Paschile family


The surname Paschile was first found in Essex but the family were originally from Pasci in Eure, Normandy and were granted lands in Essex by Henry, Duke of Normandy through Robert, Earl of Leicester, at Much and Great Baddow. While the surname was firmly established in this are for many years, searching various rolls for the surname revealed a John Pascal in the Assize Rolls of Warwickshire in 1221, and a William Pascale in 1275 in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire.

Paschile Spelling Variations


Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Pascall, Paschall, Pascale, Pascal, Paschal, Pascoll and many more.

Migration of the Paschile family to the New World and Oceana


Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Paschile name or one of its variants: Phill Paskall, on record in Virginia in 1652; Thomas Paschall (also Paskell), who, along with his wife Joanna and three children, settled in Pennsylvania in 1682.
