Pynwick Early Origins



The surname Pynwick was first found in Gloucestershire, at Painswick, a village and civil parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Wiche and was held by Roger de Lacy, a Norman Baron. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
By 1237, the village was listed as Painswike. The place name literally means "the dwelling or dairy farm" from the Old English word "wic." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
The prefix "Pain" was added about the 12th century when Pain Fitzjohn held a manor there at that time. The village thrived on the wool trade through the years, but it is now best known for its parish church's yew trees for which folklore holds that the churchyard will never have more than 99 yew trees and that should a 100th grow the Devil would pull it out.
