The name Pakingtome is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when a family lived in the hamlet of Packington found in the county of Leicestershire. The surname Pakingtome 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.

Pakingtome Early Origins



The surname Pakingtome 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.

Pakingtome Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Pakingtome family name include Packington, Pakington, Packinton, Pakinton, Pakintone, Pakintone, Packingtone and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Pakingtome surname or a spelling variation of the name include : 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.
