PACE Family History

This unusual surname of French origins, is recorded in the spellings of Peace, Pace, Paice, Pase, Payce, and possibly others as well. It has two possible origins. The first being from an early medieval nickname for a mild-mannered and even-tempered man, derived from the Anglo-Norman-French and Middle English word "pace" or "pece", ultimately from the Latin "pax", "pacis", meaning "peace", concord or amity. However given the Medieval propensity for sarcasm, it must also be assumed that some nameholders were the opposite to 'peaceful'.
