Where did the Italian Pontious family come from? What is the Italian Pontious family crest and coat of arms? When did the Pontious family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Pontious family history?

The Pontious surname was taken on from any of the many place names in Italy called Ponte, or from places derived from the Italian word "ponte," which means "bridge." Local names are derived from a place-name where the original bearer once resided or held land. Often Italian local surnames bore the prefix "di," which signifies emigration from one place to another, but does not necessarily denote nobility.
