The Gomes de Espinosa &
Gomes de la Penna Family
c.1584

  • The family crest above on the left is of Portuguese origin and the one on the right of Spanish rigin.
  • The Espinosa family name is derived from one of several places named Espinosa, found in a number of Spanish regions including Galicia and Vascongadas. The place-name Espinosa is derived from the word "espino," which means "hawthorn" and thus, the first bearer of this surname likely lived near a place where this tree grew in abundance.
