The Pavior surname is derived from the Middle English, Old French word "paver," meaning "to pave;" as such, it is thought to have been an occupational name for a layer of paving.

Pavior Early Origins



The surname Pavior was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.
