"This first issue of the PANGBURN LETTER is published at the cost of the Editor. The intent is non-profit and Is to be used to distribute information to others interested in the PANGBURN lines. Input from readers on their data is the most important function of this publication.

"This list could go on ad nauseam but all the variations seem to be actually the same family if we go back far enough.
"Town records of Oyster Bay, N.Y. reveal the earliest record of our surname A "PETTER PANGBORNE, " cordwinder, residing in Oyster Bay, on 10 May 1682 indentured his second son" Edmond PANGBORNE, as an "apprintize" to John Rogers, Husbandman of the same town counties.
