An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Pyne surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the county of Devon and Cornwall. Pyne 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 Pyne were known as the dwellers by the pine trees.

Pyne Early Origins

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
