Penn Genealogy & History

Penn is a locational English surname, from the village of Penn in the county of Berkshire and several other counties to boot. The village is named from the pre-Roman British pen, meaning hill; the name might also come from the Old English penn, meaning a fenced pasture for sheep or cattle, which were often constructed from stone. Penn family history starts with Warin de Penne, who was noted in the Pipe Rolls of Staffordshire in 1176. Some famous members of Penn genealogy are actor Sean Penn, photographer Irving Penn, children's author Audrey Penn, Democratic strategist Mark Penn, and Pennsylvania founder William Penn.
