PILGRIM Family History

Recorded in a bewildering variety of surname spellings including Paragreen, Pelerin, Pigram, Piegrome, Pigeram, Piggrem, Peggram, Peagram, Pilgrim and many others, this is an English surname. It originates though from the Old French word "pelegrin", meaning a pilgrim, and ultimately from the Roman "peregrinus", meaning literally "a traveller through the fields". The name was originally bestowed as a nickname on a person who had made a serious pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Rome, or perhaps the tomb of St.
