The distinguished surname Pangborne is of ancient English origin. It is derived from "Pangbourne," the name of a town in the county of Berkshire, and is thought to mean "Paega's stream."

Pangborne Early Origins



The surname Pangborne was first found in the county of Berkshire, where the family held a family seat from ancient times. It is likely that the progenitor of the name was a native of Pangbourne, in the hundred of Reading, a large village and civil parish on the River Thames. The parish takes its name from a trout stream called the Pang, which runs through it. In October, 1838, excavators for the railway, at Shooter's Hill, found five human skeletons, of Roman vintage including spearheads, spurs, and battle-axes of British and Roman manufacture, urns of terra cotta, and a large quantity of coins of various Roman emperors.

Pangborne Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Pangborne has been recorded under many different variations, including Pangborn, Pangburn, Pangbourne, Pangborne, Pangburne, Pangeburn and many more.

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 Pangborne or a variant listed above: Peter Pangburn, who emigrated from Oxfordshire to Essex County, New Jersey during the mid-17th century, Jesse Pangburn, who was recorded in Québec in 1795.

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: Malo mori quam foedari
Motto Translation: I would rather die than be disgraced.
