St. Peregrine the martyr, was an early Christian martyr who died because he and others refused to worship the Roman Emperor Commodus on his birthday. Saint Peregrine (Peregrinus) of Auxerre (d. ca. 261 AD or ca. 304 AD) is venerated as the first bishop of Auxerre and the builder of its first cathedral. The name Peregrine is derived from the Latin Peregrinus, which originally meant "one from abroad", in other words, a foreigner, traveler, or pilgrim. The Peregrine Falcon (falco peregrinus) was first described under its current name by English ornithologist Marmaduke Tunstall in his 1771 work Ornithologia Britannica.

Peregrine Early Origins



The surname Peregrine was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Norman influence of English history dominated after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. The family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that county. The family name was from Haute Marne in Normandy and probably originated from the King who was a falconer, a peregrine being a hunting type of falcon.
