The Pantor surname is derived from the Middle English/Old French word "panetier" and was an occupational name from the office of master-baker. "In the court of France the Pantier was an officer of high consideration; and in monasteries the Pantier was charged with the distribution of bread to the poor. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
