Pauncefeart History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Pauncefeart is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Pauncefeart family lived in Gloucestershire, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages.

Early Origins of the Pauncefeart family

The surname Pauncefeart was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Hasfield. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in the year 1086 A.D., a survey of England initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England in 1066, the chief tenant of Hasfield was Westminster Abbey and holding the land from the Abbey was Thurstan FitzRolf. It is from this latter Norman noble that the Paunceforts are conjecturally descended. Pancevold was a tenant-in-chief at the survey, and Pancefolt was an under-tenant. They held this manor until 1598. The name is derived from the French Pancevolt.

Migration of the Pauncefeart family

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. Pauncefearts were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: John Pauncefoot who landed in North America in 1750.
