The name Paulen reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Paulen family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Paulen is based on the Norman-Christian given name Paulinus, which belonged to an early settler Anglo-Norman settler.

Paulen Early Origins



The surname Paulen was first found in Staffordshire from very ancient times, and Lincolnshire where they were Lords of the Manor of Odcombe. The origin of the name has long since faded into the mists of time but most scholars give the name as a Norman Christian name belonging to a settler, Paulinus, who landed in England soon after the Norman Conquest.

Paulen Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Paulen has been recorded under many different variations, including Paulin, Paulyn, Pollen, Pollyn, Pollin, Polyn and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Paulens were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
