Pennington Genealogy & History

Pennington is an English surname, largely locational from a few villages in Cumberland and Lancashire. It comes from the Old English pening, which means a penny and refers to the rent on the land, and tun, for farm or settlement. In one case, it also meant the land of Pinna's people. Pennington family history begins with Sir John Pennington, added to the English Death Registers in 1470. Pennington genealogy lays claim to several noteworthy people, such as Dakota Territory Governor John Pennington and the 19th century New Jersey political family, whose members served as Governors of New Jersey and Speaker of the House.
