An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


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 surname Pynn was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

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. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Pynn or a variant listed above:
