Pyman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient name Pyman is a Norman name that would have been developed in England after the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. This name was a name given to a talkative or thieving person. Such a person was so named for a fancied resemblance to the magpie, a common bird in England at the time that was known for such characteristics.

Early Origins of the Pyman family


The surname Pyman was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Pyman family to the New World and Oceana


The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Pyman arrived in North America very early:
