Early Origins of the Pantom family
The surname Pantom was first found in Lincolnshire
, at Panton, a village in the civil parish of East Barkwith, in the East Lindsey of district. The village dates back to the Domesday Book
of 1086 where it was listed as Pantone and possibly meant "farmstead near a hill or pan-shaped feature" from the Old English words "panne" + "tun." CITATION[CLOSE]

At that time, there were 32 households on 40 acres of meadows with a church, land held by the Archbishop of York. Conjecturally the family is descended from Gilbert of Panton, a Norman noble who held the village at that time. CITATION[CLOSE]

The Pantom 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: Firmius, et pugnan
Motto Translation: More strongly into the fight.
