Pangbyrne History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished surname Pangbyrne 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."

Early Origins of the Pangbyrne family


The surname Pangbyrne 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.

Migration of the Pangbyrne family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Pangbyrnes to arrive in North America: 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.

The Pangbyrne 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.
