It appears that there is/was a village called Pargrave in Norfolk and there certainly is one called Palgrave in Suffolk whilst it appears from the web site of The Palgrave Society that some Palgraves moved from Suffolk into Norfolk at an early date. BEB1841 uses Palgrave throughout as did the later Visitation but the early Visitation used Pagrave whilst identifying the first John as "of Pagrave in Norfolk". 'Pargrave' was a common variant.
