The Pantre 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]
