The ancestry of the name Pyn dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the county of Devon and Cornwall. Pyn is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. In this case the original bearers of the surname Pyn were known as the dwellers by the pine trees.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Pyn, or a variant listed above:
