Patino Family Origin

Surnames: Patino
I am looking for any information on our family's name. So far I have bits and pieces of information. I can only go back to my grandfather's generation. His name was Manuel Tovar Patino, he was born in Guadalajara, Mexico. He was orphaned as a child when the revolutionaries executed his parents and took their land. Manuel never passed along much more information. What I am certain of is that our family name has always been spelled Patino (without the accent ["~"] over the 'n'). I have found a Patino of Italian descent buried in the Ely Cemetary in Nevada (d: 1906) and Patino's in the New York area. In Florida, Captain Andres Soyez Patino of Spain led an infantry unit into St. Augustine in 1565. Another source shows that our name may have been derived from Patmos, an island in the Aegean Sea, and that our name has Italian roots. Patmos was occupied by the Venetians in the 1200's.
Can anyone help?? Please drop me a line if you help me connect these dots. Thanks.

Hey Matt,

I am also looking into the origins of the surname Patino. While I have not found any concrete sources yet, I have been given two contradictory suggestions as to its origin. One person sayed that it was indeed of Italian origin. Another sayed that it was of Sephardic origin, like the surname Pinto. Your guess is as good as mine. Please share any futher information you find about Patino's origin. Mine comes by way fo Colombia. My grandfather was the illegitimate child of a Patino. He was not recognized until he was an adult; and as a man opted to maintain has mothers maiden name rather then adopt his fathers. The Patinos are one of the most prominent families of Colombia. Belonging to the landed aristocracy and fielding many presidents. I was born in Bolivia. At one point a Bolivian with the surname of Patino was the richest man in the world due to his ownership of the silvermines of Potosi. You can reach me at oquendo123@hotmail.com

You are right that Patinos are a powerful family in Bolivia. The current patriarch of that family is Jaime Ortiz-Patino I believe. I also know that there are some prominent Patinos in Bogotá, Colombia as I traveled there once and saw many signs with the Patino name on them. All these signs had to do with important local political offices for which upcoming elections were being held. I was told (by my grandfather) that the Patino family came from Galicia, Spain and basically was either conquistadores or sailors and military, which traveled over to the new world (N. & S. Americas to be exact). This kind of rings true as there was a Jose Victorino Patino in the founding garrison of Santa Barbara (circa 1782) http://www.southcoastsar.org/SantaBarbara.htm

I myself also studied in Spain (@ the Univ of Salamanca) when I was younger and when I met people there from Galicia, they told me there were Patinos in Galicia and they told me I looked like them. But I never traveled to Galicia myself...now I regret it!

All I know for certain is the Patinos who came over from Spain (I'm 3rd generation born in the States) were not rich. Mostly, carpenters, musicians and tailors. I will say this though, they were all pretty stocky, strong and a hardy lot. A # of my uncles, great uncles, father, grandpa & great grandpa etc, were either pro- and semi-pro boxers at one time or wrestlers.

I found the following on Patiño.:
This ancient surname originated from the Duero and Miño rivers in Galicia, Spain. It is mentioned in a couplet written by Flores de Ocáriz:
I saw an unbreachable castle bounded by the Duero and Miño; useless it is to describe it, for it's the land of Patiño.

The castle described above may have originally been called Patiñorbe, a name later shortened to Patiño. The Iberian branches of the family are limited mostly to Galicia, Andalucía and Portugal. However, some settled in Milan, Italy, and became ancestors to the Marquises of Castelar and the Counts of Belveder and Grandes of Spain.

Although not numerous in Latin Ameria and the United States, Patiños can be found in California and New Mexico. José Victor Patiño, of Mexican parents, died in 1789 at the Santa Bárbara presidio.

Diego Vela Patiño was born in Seville in 1650. At age 22, he emigrated to Peru and later married María Josefa Martínez. About 1654, the birth of Apolonia Patiño, daughter of Anotonio, is recorded in Hispaniola (now the Dominican Republic).

Also in Hispaniola, José Patiño and Teresa Mejía, natives of La Vega, has a son, Hilario, in 1779. By 1795, Manual Patiño of La Coruña, Spain, had a daughter named María de la Luz. Five years later, his second wife, María Sevilla, gave birth to Juana de Mata.

Simón Patiño, a Bolivian industrial engineer born in 1868, amassed a personal fortune worth $900 million from copper and silver mines in his country.

Hi, my name is Francisco Patino Jr.
The farthest i can go back is my grandfather. he dont speak much of his past but what i can get out of him is that he is not from Mexico. he still speaks spanish but i hear a accent of some sort. my father was born in Tampico, Mexico. Thats one of the biggest ports of Mexico. so if he migrated from anywhere when he was young he traveled by boat. i did reasearch and at that cargo ships were going in and out of Tampico from Europe- Spain, Italy. NON- from South America. And with everything happening in those countrys at that time im almost positive he came from Spain or Italy. But i dont know his parents names my grandpa name is Acadio Patino. he named my dad Francisco after his Grandpa. After that im lost maybe someone can help? my email is patinofrank@hotmail.com

The family origin is Galicia . . . I'm Cuban and have only heard of one other Cuban Patino family, but the most interesting information I have found about the Patinos is in the link below . . . check out the list of names of men left on Hispanola after the first Columbus journey

Hey
I'm of Colombian desent but I have heard our famili was from near Portigal with some roots in Italy and Scottland.
I believe there is a farm in Spain near the Portigal that has our last name. Anyway, you are welcomed to contact me if you want to talk. I've always want to do a family tree.
Also, I do believe some of our relatives are in Mexico and other South American countries and are associated with Oil.
