The name Paskyle arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Paskyle 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.

Paskyle Early Origins



The surname Paskyle 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.

Paskyle 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.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Paskyle or a variant listed above were: 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.
