Published Information


The Pennington Research Association is not responsible for how current the genealogical information may be or the accuracy or authenticity of genealogical information released in its publications, in print, electronically or on the Internet.  This genealogical information has been supplied by PRA members and other researchers, which we believe is the latest and best Pennington Family information available to date.


Despite our best efforts to meet the genealogical research standards we subscribe to, each researcher must ensure their own research is as accurate as they can make it.

We subscribe to the National Genealogical Societies Standards for Sound Genealogical Research.  To view them, go to -->

Family Groups

The original Pennington Family Group assignments were first designated some 35 years ago at the start of the Pennington Research Association. Constant genealogical study over the years reveals that certain groups can, and have been, combined when a common ancestor is found. Combined with the DNA Study, we are learning more about our common ancestors and we anticipate more Family Groups will be combined as our genealogical research and DNA Study continues. The Family Groups represent the genealogical work done to date.

The three words on the scroll of the Coats of Arms are "Vincit amor patriae"

"Vincit amor patriae" means "The love of my country prevails" or "Love of Country Conquers" which is the United States Army 28th Infantry Regiment's motto.   "Vincent amor patriae laudumque immensa cupido" means "The love of my country exceeds everything."

The following motto appears in English above the mountain cat of the original Baron Muncaster Crest.  "Firm, Vigilant, Active" -Virg. AEn. vi. 823 v. Muncaster b. Pennington
