The surname Panchera was first found in Friuli (Venetian: Friul), an area of northeastern Italy, which was originally a Roman colony, and later held by Leopold III of Habsburg, Duke of Austria in 1382. In those ancient times only persons of rank, the podesta, clergy, city officials, army officers, artists, landowners were entered into the records. To be recorded at this time, at the beginning of recorded history, was of itself a great distinction and indicative of noble ancestry.
