The Anglo-Saxon name Pynn comes from when the family resided in the county of Devon and Cornwall. Pynn 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 Pynn were known as the dwellers by the pine trees.

Pynn Early Origins

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States.
