The Magno Family
01.25.2009, 18:33
Filed under: Hernandez, Magno, Sobrepeña

Etymology

Pronounced [mag'-no], the family name is derived from the Latin adjective magnus, meaning “great”. It could also mean “large” or “important.”  The spelling variations for this surname include Magnani, Magni, Magnaguti, Magnanini, Magnano, Magni, Magnini, among others. This family name and its derivatives are widely used in Spanish-, French- and Italian-speaking nations.  The name was first found in Bologna, Italy — specifically, the province’s capital, Emilia.

Our Line

The origins of our line can be traced to Iloilo City, Philippines.  Ricardo Magno is the earliest known patriarch of our branch of the Magno Clan.  Due to a fire that destroyed the civil records in the 1940s, very little documentation can be found, making the search for more ancestors particularly challenging.  The Magno surname can also be found in many areas of North Luzon and Bicol; but a genealogical link to these family has not yet been established.

By marriage, the clan is related to other families of note: FranciscoHernandezSan Diego and Sobrepeña.

Comment by Helen

hello there!…my late father’s name is sozonte veroy magno hails from cateel davao…he had a younger brother by the name of florencio also from cateel,davao but he also passed away…my dad was married to my late mom patricia ripalda magno from tanuan, leyte….my parents meet in davao when my mom migrated from leyte….

i remembered we have relatives in davao with names like uncle damaso magno…the owner of the house of magno before….my late grandmother also by the name of anatalia veroy magno…but since we moved to zamboanga city in the year of 1960’s we’ve loosed contacts w/ our magno family….

i lived in japan right now and trying to traced back my relatives from magno clan but i dont how where to find them…

my late dad told us that during the war time there were 7 brothers, sons of magno who spread out luzon, visayas, mindanao….and they are all one family…they were my ancestors ..dad said that’s how magno is through out the philippines…hopely we are relatives…

Comment by clemencia magno tuschida

Hi! I would suggest you document what you know, then interview family members, then start document search. Oral histories are always fascinating; but in my case, I have actually disproved many of them with factual research. I guess my Lolo’s and Lola’s tend to remember things to be grander or more exciting than they actually were. Yes, I hope we can find a connection! Stay in touch!

Comment by Mona

i am from san isidro nueva ecija and my grands told me we also have relatives in the visayas but i don’t know where exactly. well i’m happy to have read this about all of you. if you’re the ones our lolos&lolas are talking about, i hope to read more from you soon!

Comment by Joey Boquing Sobrepeña

hi joey. i have not done much research on my sobrepena line, as the source documents in iloilo were burned in the 1940s.

there is NO way of proving any connection to your family, given what i know. thanks for visiting the site!

Comment by Maria Cristina Marqueta

My paternal grandfather, FELICISIMO J. MAGNO SR, was originally from janiuay, iloilo. but he died before I could ask any of our family history. My grandmother never told me anything too but she is from Paranaque, MARIA C. MAGNO. My father never really told me any of my family’s history.. and I am now trying to uncover my ancestry… and it would really be appreciated if i could get any help

Comment by Claudette Magno

hi claudette. my connection to the magno’s of iloilo is still a mystery and is part of my reseach priorities. please continue to monitor my progress here. better yet, if you could build what you know of your ancestry on geni.com, the system will advise us if there is a common link out there on the web. thanks for visiting the site!

Comment by Mona

Comment by Mona

I am from Mindanao Philippines but now in Ohio USA. My father’s name is LEOPOLDO S. SOBREPENA of Nueva Ecija. Due to a family conflicts, I never get a chance to know my father side at all. Just in case you know him or the family tree, I’d be glad and interested to know my father side’s origin.
Thanks and Have a wonderful day..

Comment by Mona

Looking for info on great-great grandfather Peter Magno who immigrated to Liverpool Nova Scotia in the late 1800s. He died of Tuberculosis at age 24. Dont know much about how he came to NS but he worked on the railway. Any info on this would be a blessing.

Comment by M. White

hi m white. infortunately, i don’t have a PETER MAGNO in my database. i’ve red-flagged the name and will give you a heads-up if i come across peter in my research. as he lived in europe, you may have more luck with the magno’s in spanish-/ italian-/ portuguese speaking countries. thanks for visiting the site!

Comment by Mona

Comment by joey sobrepena

Hi Mona, Claudette, and everyone. I have a Magno Family tree tracing back to Nueva Ecija from the marriage of Cayetano Magno and Paula Pacson Their children are: Felicismo Magno,Vitalyano Magno, Alfonso Magno, Julio Magno, Isabel Magno, and Mauro Magno. I am from Alfonso’s line, his great grand daughter. I would love to finish the family tree, so if you are from Lolo ‘Imo’s side, then I think I found you ;) email me at jjbmagno@yahoo.com or jmagno632@roadrunner.com

Comment by Juvy Magno

hi juvy, our family is from the visayas. because of the claveria decree, it is very possible that we are relatives; but it is also possible that we are not. ‘will let you know if i find a connection. could you kindly plot your family tree on geni.com? if there is a common connection with me or others, the system will let you know. thanks!

Comment by Mona

Hi Juvy. This is a little late, but Cayetano Magno is actually my great-grandfather, and Julio Magno is my grandfather. Perhaps we can help each other with the family tree?

Comment by NR

@ juvy magno, maybe you ancestors were from the town of san isidro,nueva ecija,merely in calaba, sto. cristo or in san roque, although i don’t even remember or saw their face but i heard it to my father, that is why i’m so familiar with that names,,,,by the way are you a niece,child or grandchild of bienvenido magno, what is your relation to him? he is son of alfonso or ponsong in our area

Comment by beryeth

Hi Mona/Claudette and all. My father JUAN “Oto Jun” MAGNO SR + is from Janiuay Iloilo. Their ancestral home is just beside the Rural Bank of Janiuay. My Grandfather’s nickname is “UPE” ( I’m not too sure about his first name though it might be CIPRIANO ) and I don’t have a clear account of him since he died in the 1960s. I hope we can find some common roots … Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Jorge

Comment by Jorge Magno

hi, jorge. thanks for visiting the site! i don’t have a JUAN MAGNO in my database yet; but i will ask my father if the details you mentioned rings a bell. he’s 73 and still remembers most of his relatives from iloilo. will definitely keep in touch!

Comment by Mona

I saw the comment of Joselito Sobrepena which he said his granfather is Generoso Pacheo Sobrepena. he said he has relatives from Manapla, Negros Occidental. i think he is related to the Pacheo side coz i am from manapla.

Comment by raquel pacheo

Hello. I’m Ermon Jae Magno, 18, from Pandacan, Manila. We don’t have any other information regarding our ancestry beside the name of my great grandfather, Baltazar Magno. We have been living here in Pandacan for decades. Maybe we can trace routes and find our connections. Some say that our roots came from Nueva Ecija, some says from Visayas. all are yet to be confirmed. Please keep in touch. We’d be so glad to hear from everyone of you. Kindly email me at ejaemagno29@yahoo.com.ph and at ejaemagno29@gmail.com Thanks! and may God Bless the Magno Clan!

Comment by Ejae

hi, ejae. i don’t have BALTAZAR MAGNO on my database yet; but i will keep on looking. please put up your family tree on geni.com so we can collaborate on common links. thanks!

Comment by Mona

Hi, I’m Randolph Sobrepeña Jr. I believe our clan also came somewhere in Iloilo but can’t recall the exact loaction. My grandfather is Eusebio Sobrepeña, died during the Japanese invasion. According to my father, he was a “guerilla” and was caught by the Japanese during that time. His body was never found. My father relocated to Bacnotan, La Union (where his mother came from). Please email me: randolph43@yahoo.com if you know my Lolo.

Comment by Randolph

hi randolph. my grandparents moved to mandaluyong right before wwii broke out, so we have lost many connections to our family in iloilo. EUSEBIO SOBREPENA is not on my database.

please put your ancestry on geni.com. once i have more sobrepenas in my study, i will let you know via a collaboration request. for now, i really don’t have much to share yet.

Comment by junel magno pamintuan

Hello to all… My grandfather once told me that Magno family have originated dated back 1500’s in San Isidro Nueva Ecija, the story started when some of the 12 brothers became wanted and was being sought by the Spaniards. To avoid getting caught and be killed, a family friend who is Spanish told them to go away, hide and change their names and family name to Magno. Some of them moved to the northern and southern part of Luzon, Visayas region, Mindanao, some stayed in Nueva Ecija and some have settled in Bulacan and Pampangga. My grandfather is having a kind of list of names written in a large brownies paper that contain names of family members dating back as far as 1700’s, unfortunately I don’t see that paper anymore. My grandfather passed away 23 years ago at the age of 81, his name is Alfonso Tecson Magno son of Felix Magno and Catalina Tecson Magno of Calaba San Isidro Nueva Ecija. Back in 1980’s my sister is having a merchandise business in Roxas Isabela, in one of their trip in Quirino she meet someone with the same family name… my sister was so surprised to hear the same tale of the 12 brothers and even surprised to know where the family have originated – Nueva Ecija. It is the same story that I came upon from Catanduanes and also from Iloilo.

Comment by Alfonso Nemenzo Magno

thanks for sharing, alfonso. there is indeed a lot to look into when it comes to the magno family name. i am hoping i can establish a personal, documented link to the northern provinces — the spanish records are well-kept there.

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

Hello…I was just looking at these posts. I happened to be a Magno on my mothers’ side from Aklan…I’ve met some Magnos’ who are native Davaenos’…and also from Leyte I wonder whether
Magnos are all related…

Comment by Romeo Magno Simangan

hi, romeo. the surname “magno” was in the claveria catalogo apellidos from which filipinos chose new surnames back in the 1860s. before then, surnames were changed often, especially by those who had little to gain from keeping their parents’ name. it is possible that some magno’s are related; but not all. our branch came from iloilo; and i am currently trying to trace our link to north luzon. :)

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

Hello again… Im still having a hard time tracing my family line. My grandfather, Maj. Felicisimo
J. Magno Sr. Died in 1984. He worked in MAnila International airport.. Now known as Ninoy Aquino international airport. The only sibling that he had that I met was Lourdes Magno.. She never really told me anything when I was a kid. My grandfather’s kids are: Felicisimo Magno Jr (my dad), marita Magno-Hegerle and Francisco Magno. As far as I know my dad and his siblings grew up in San Dionisio, paranaque which is where my grandmother, Maria Cruz Magno, is from…

Comment by Claudette magno

hi claudette. as your grandfather was in military service, the best way to contact the information office of whatever branch he was in. because that was some time back, they should be able to share his service record with the family.

if that doesn’t work out, find his birth / baptism record at the church of the latter day saints family history center near you. you would have to know WHERE he was born to get to the right record. it would take some time and effort to go through microfilm, but it’s worth it. i get a high whenever i go up another generation. :) good luck!

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

you can do a preliminary search here: https://www.familysearch.org/.

the CLDS on-line catalogue can be found here: https://www.familysearch.org/#form=catalog. i usually do my searches first before i go to the library, so i have the list of microfilm numbers i need to request.

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

My grandfather is also a Magno, his name is Resurreccion Magno but I forgot the actual date of birth. His family is from Janiuay and Lambunao. I forget the names of his parents but he was young during the war. Also his mother is a teacher and his father is wealthy man who own lots of land. His parents were killed during the war and his relatives took all their land and wealth. He was young so he don’t know how to farm. He has siblings but they were taken by his relatives also. He was sent to farm in Sta. barbara when he was 9 years old and he fall in love when he was 16. He died not seeing his siblings 1 girl and a boy. He tried to search from them but he failed, maybe they changed their names.

Comment by Fermin

thanks for the visit, fermin! from a research perspective, your case is quite difficult to crack. the first recourse would be to look at vital records like birth, marriage, death which need names, dates, places. i don’t have RESURECCION MAGNO in my family, but i will give you a holler if i find him in my readings. good luck in your search!

Comment by Mona Magno-Veluz

My grandfather was born in Malasiqui,Pangasinan.When he got married they lived in Tumauini Isabela.They have 9 kids.His name is Domingo Estrada Magno.He is a soldier before,now he was in Montalban,Rizal.

I would be interested to link up with the Magnos of the Philippines.
