The name Packingtoom is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived in the hamlet of Packington found in the county of Leicestershire. The surname Packingtoom was originally derived from the Old English word Pakintone, which referred to those who lived at the wood of the people Pacca. The place-name Packington was probably first used after the family moved away from their original dwelling place to another area. In this circumstance, the family would adopt the place-name so that they could be known by the name of the original village.

Packingtoom Early Origins



The surname Packingtoom was first found in North West Leicestershire at Packington, a village and civil parish that dates back to at least 1043 when it was listed as Pakinton. Forty-three years later in the Domesday Book of 1086, the village was listed as Pachintone. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The place name literally means "estate associated with a man called Pac(c)a" having derived from the Old English personal name + ing + tun. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Great Packington is a hamlet near Meriden, Warwickshire and is home to Packington Hall, a 17th-century mansion built in 1693 for Sir Clement Fisher. His earlier manor house Packington Old Hall is nearby. At the time of the Conquest, this was the property of Turchil de Warwick, by whom, it was given to Geoffrey de Clinton, founder of the castle and priory of Kenilworth. After the Dissolution, it passed by letters-patent to the Fisher family.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Packingtoom family emigrate to North America: Jonathon Pakingtone who settled in Carolina in 1700.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Par viribus virtus
Motto Translation: Virtue is equal to strength.
