The Anglo-Saxon name Paggintom comes from when the family resided in the hamlet of Packington found in the county of Leicestershire. The surname Paggintom 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.

Paggintom Early Origins



The surname Paggintom 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Paggintom or a variant listed above: 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.
