Pulver Early Origins



The surname Pulver was first found in Lincolnshire 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 12th century seated at Samplod and Boston. For those interested in further research of the early history of the surname we recommend the ancient Harleian Manuscripts which are in the British Museum. The name Pulvertoft is recorded in 1097 (folio 83b) and 1190(folio 10b) etc.
