Late 16C English Given Names: Notes on Paschall
Late Sixteenth Century English Given Names
Notes on the name Paschall
Paschall: Pasco is Cornish; the other 2 forms refer to the same foreigner and show both a `translated' and phonetically spelled form of his name. The entry is for Pasquere alias Paschall Vandermote, of St. Peter Brod [sic] St., London; the name is in record as Paasquier c. 1300 at Kortrijk (Courtrai) (Debrabandere, 140), and Paschall apparently represents the usual English Pascall (DES at Pascall, Pascoe).
