Peartingtun History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Peartingtun is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the region of Partington. Peartingtun is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.


Early Origins of the Peartingtun family


The surname Peartingtun was first found in Cheshire at Partington, a township, in the parish of Bowdon, union of Altrincham, hundred of Bucklow. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Peartingtun 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 Peartingtuns to arrive in North America: Hugh Partington who settled in Maryland in 1697; James, John, Richard and William Partington all arrived in Philadelphia between 1814 and 1856.
