The lineage of the name Pagintone begins with the Anglo-Saxon
tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the hamlet of Packington found in the county of Leicestershire
. The surname Pagintone 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.

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

Migration of the Pagintone family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Pagintone were among those contributors: Jonathon Pakingtone who settled in Carolina in 1700.
The Pagintone 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.
