The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Pymbly came from the name Euphemia where it is a short form of that name. The surname Pymbly originally derived from the Old English word Pymma which came from Euphemia. The surname Pymbly referred to the son of Euphemia which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames.

Pymbly Early Origins



The surname Pymbly 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. Later the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379, list Agnes Pyme and Johannes Pymson. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Pymbly Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Pymbly family name include Pym, Pymm, Pyme, Pymme, Pim, Pimm, Pimme and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Pymbly surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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.
