The name Pinn is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in the county of Devon and Cornwall. Pinn is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the original bearers of the surname Pinn were known as the dwellers by the pine trees.
