Multiple Origins for the Surname Pawley


English


The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Pawley family name to the British Isles. They lived in Dorset. The name, however, is a reference to Pavilly, in Seine Maritime, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Pawley Early Origins



The surname Pawley was first found in Dorset where they held a family seat at Charlton Marshall, when Reginald de Pavelli was granted the King's lands by King Henry II. Later King John granted Pillington of Norfolk to the Lords of Pavelli, Roger and Thomas. The son, however, Thomas Pavelli or Thomas Pawley still adhered to the King of France in 1204.

Pawley Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Pawley, Pauley, Paulye, Paulley and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Pawley or a variant listed above:
