Early Origins of the Pymbley family


The surname Pymbley was first found in Somerset where the family can be "traced to Philip Pym, of Brymmore, 12 Edward IV." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
Indeed, there is much debate about the origin of this name. Another reference claims "considering that Eufemia is fairly common in the Hundred Rolls, that Pimme is feminine, and Phemie is still the nickname, it all but certain that we have here the solution of the name in question. Personally I have no doubt that this derivation is correct. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Hundred Rolls of 1273 lists the following: Eufemmia de Neville in Lincolnshire; Katerina Eufemme in Norfolk; Pimme, widow of Peter Seman in Cumberland; Bartholomew filius Pimme in Hunts; Chun Pimme in Cambridge and finally Henry Pimme in Cambridge.

Migration of the Pymbley family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Pymbley were among those contributors: Henry Pym, who settled in Barbados in 1668; Mary Pym, who settled in Virginia in 1673; Richard Pymm, who settled in Barbados in 1667; Charles Pym, who arrived in New England in 1715.
