Panlilio Family (Pampanga)
The Panlilio clan of Pampanga comes from three distinct families in Mexico, San Fernando, and Bacolor towns. It is said that the original Panlilios came from Portugal and their name was spelled "Panlilho". They were first recorded in early 1800s in Mexico, Pampanga. Through intermarriages they are related to the Henson, Hizon, and Lazatin families.
From Mexico town are the Panlilios of Judge Alejandro Panlilio. His son, Atty. Jose Lazatin Panlilio, married Fe Lugue Sarmiento. Ms. Sarmiento was the daughter of Laureano Sarmiento of Bacolor, Pampanga and of Ines Lugue of Tabuyuc, Apalit, Pampanga. Ms. Sarmiento would marry Mr. Panlilio and became the legendary international jeweler Fe S. Panlilio, much associated with the glitter of the Marcos years.
From the San Fernando branch comes the family of Don Vicente Panlilio. He married Doña Nicolasa Dayrit. This branch is recognized by Kapampangan society as the most distinguished. Don Vicente and Dona Nicolasa had five children: Luis, Pablo, Carlos, Teresa, and Lourdes.
From the Bacolor branch are the families of the brothers Don Jose Panlilio y Santos-Joven and Don Francisco Panlilio y Santos-Joven. Don Jose married Doña Luz Sarmiento, while Don Francisco married to Doña Nitang Granda. Bacolor was the site of their wonderfully conserved 1830's ancestral house until lahar from Mt. Pinatubo destroyed the town in 1991. The Panlilio y Santos-Joven, through scion Jose Maria Ricardo “Joey” Panlilio donated the mansion and family heirlooms to the De La Salle University, to house the magnificent “Museo De La Salle” Collection in Dasmarinas City, Cavite.
