Here are blazons for the Pinnock/Penneck/Pinoke family which are listed in Burkes's Peerage. Several were registered in Cornwall, with one being a "Funeral Impalement" from Ireland. I know that many of you have an interest in heraldry and post this for your consideration. Please, remember that there is "NO such thing as a family coat-of-arms", and that only persons who can prove direct line of descent may bear these arms. Having pointed that out, there is speculative evidence that the family originated in Cornwall and may be related to these families. So, here they are.
