The name Poleon came to England with the ancestors of the Poleon family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the Norman-Christian given name Paulinus, which belonged to an early settler Anglo-Norman settler.

Poleon Early Origins



The surname Poleon was first found in Staffordshire from very ancient times, and Lincolnshire where they were Lords of the Manor of Odcombe. The origin of the name has long since faded into the mists of time but most scholars give the name as a Norman Christian name belonging to a settler, Paulinus, who landed in England soon after the Norman Conquest.

Poleon Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Paulin, Paulyn, Pollen, Pollyn, Pollin, Polyn and many more.
