Origins of surname

Strange as it may seem in the 21st century, when a penny has almost no value, in the 13th century it had great purchasing power, and the surname indicated a person of wealth.

Early records

Between 1825 and 1832 five children of John Penny and Grace Mosey were baptised.

Variations

  • Penny
  • Penney
