The Magno Family


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.

    1. 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 said that’s how magno is through out the philippines…hopely we are relatives…

    2. 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!

  2. 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!

    1. 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!

    1. The Magnos that I know are from Nueva Ecija. My grandfather was Santiago Magno and he hailed from Sto. Cristo.
      So far, no Magno from our clan had made it big in any field. I’m trying🙂

  6. 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

    1. 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, the system will advise us if there is a common link out there on the web. thanks for visiting the site!

    2. I’m Pascual Magno Jr., my ancestors are from Iloilo according to my Uncle Lucio Magno the youngest of the Family, my father is the eldest..we raised in Brgy Lit-Lit, Silang Cavite and Magno is huge clan in Silang..

    3. Hi ako po ay anak ng pinsan tay flesing.ako ay anak ni late sofronio magno.yong tatay ko po ang pinupuntahan ni tay flesing pag umuwi sya ng iloilo..

  7. my father is PROCESO BARNACHA SOBREPENA from bauang, la union. we stayed in la paz, iloilo city while we are now staying in talisay city, negros occ.My father told us that Felipe Calusa is our cousin, while the wife of Atty.Degamo of Mandalutong is our auntieand the Gapuz family are our close relative to include John Robert of Fil Estate.

    1. hi sergio. while i don;t have PROCESO BARNACHA SOBREPENA on my database yet, i will continue to look into our sobrepena connection. =)

  8. 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..
    christy jane Sobrepena

    1. hi christy. while i don’t have LEOPOLDO S. SOBREPENA on my database yet, i will continue to look into our sobrepena connection. =)

  9. 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.

    1. 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!

  10. hello matet!im so happy reading about you..I have also a daughter named Christy Sobrepena!im joey !here at Bukidnon Philippines

  11. 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 or

    1. 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 if there is a common connection with me or others, the system will let you know. thanks!

    2. 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?

    3. @ 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

  12. 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

    1. 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!

His father’s name is Jorge Magno and his mother’s name is Divina Garcia, they were both from pangasinan. I was hoping that maybe some of you are related to them.

  34. 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.

    1. 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.

  35. hello po,my name is anne magno.i haven’t seen my father Antonio Magno since birth.He used to be a captain of the ship before base in davao.But he resides in Las pinas then.I would like to know if u know him.Its my pleasure to meet my brothers and sisters and relatives.thanks

    hmmm..may project ako genealogy….pero hindi ko alam kung sino ang mga ninono ko..maybe this will help me…

    1. thanks for visiting the site, vismin! i have not yet found any relatives in cebu; but i will let you know if i find anything. i wish you all the best in your search!

  37. Hi, I’m Don Carlo Pena, Great grandson of Don Juan Magno Pena great grandson of Don Benito Magno. Don Benito, a spanish conquestador who established the town of Pozzurubio in Pangasinan. A old spanish mansion still stands right now beside the pueblo plaza. I hope to be in touch with other clan relatives here in the philippines and spain

    1. wow! that’s very interesting! gives me more reason to start looking into our connection to the northern magno’s. 🙂

  38. @beryeth, yes I am a descendant, my grandfather is Uricio ‘Uring’ Magno, the eldest of Ponsong’s line. Lolo Bien ‘bienvenido’ in which you referred to is my great uncle or my grandfather’s brother. You may contact me

    @NR, certain would love to complete or add into the family three, I have yet to post the complete tree but soon will. I am wondering if you have any information about Cayetano’s ancestors? -pls. keep me posted

  39. @NR corrections (I should have spell checked lol)
    ‘certainly’ would love to complete or add into the family ‘tree’. I have yet to post the complete family tree but will soon post it.

  40. I am from Anonas Urdaneta, Pangasinan,mostly my relatives are Pangasinense but I’m ilocano. I am a believer in Christ.. at present nakatira ako dito sa Batangas..

  41. 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…

    1. 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. 🙂

  42. 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…

    1. 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!

  43. 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.

    1. 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!

  44. 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.

  56. I am from a Magno clan from Jolo, Sulu and Zamboanga. In fact there is a Street in Zamboanga called Ignacio Magno who is my great uncle whose brother, Vicente Magno was once the mayor of Jolo, Sulu. Any ideas about this branch?

    1. No links so far; but because Magno was in the Claveria catalogue, there are many unrelated Magno’s in the Philippines. The only way to know for sure is to document the ancestry research.

    2. I’m also a Magno by family name from my late father. I and my other siblings were born in Davao City but migrated to Zamboanga City. True there’s a street I. Magno street ( Ignacio ). But we hvnt meet any Magno people by such family name. We still lives in Zambo.though.

Can you give me any information on our geanelogy or if we are somehow related? Will be much appreciated. I can be reached through Thank you looking forward to your reply.

    1. I know of Jacqui’s parents who owned the Zamboanga Hotel but I have not had the chance to research it yet. I have not established a connection, if any.

    2. A blessed day. My name s Cleng Magno Tsuchida. I was born wd 7 siblings from Davao City. My dad who was born native of Davao told my siblings a story that during the war tym there were 7 young men and their brothers bearing Magno as family name and they scattered themselves like 3 in Luzon 2 in Mindanao and 2 in Visayas region to keep themselves to alive during the war period. Later part of my life we migrated to Zamboanga City whom we saw a street name I. Magno. My Fsther then recognized that name s a relative since his forefather Magno mentioned that a military ranking official n Zambo is a relative though at that tym 1966 Shen we landed Zamboanga weren’t aware if I. Magno was still alive or passed away since we knew no one when moved to Zamboanga bcoz my dad was one of the pioneers of GSIS n Zamboanga
