Pennells Early Origins



The surname Pennells was first found in Essex where they held a family seat in Colchester. 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 year 1377 when William Pennell was recorded on the Tax Rolls for the county of Essex.
