An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Penning surname in Britain is generally thought to be one of the variations derived from the Old English "Penig," denoting a coin (the penny). However, there is also a German Penning, many of whom came to England in the early 18th century, where they were known as the Palatines in London.

Penning Early Origins



The surname Penning was first found in Suffolk 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.
