Pash is one of the many new names that came to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Pash 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.

Pash Early Origins



The surname Pash 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.

Pash Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Pascall, Paschall, Pascale, Pascal, Paschal, Pascoll and many more.
