Imagines Maiorum - Ancestors from Campania

Pecora-Part A

This surname is now attested in 303 Italian comuni. It is a fairly common name in Salerno province, which should not be surprising, given the importance of pastoralism to the economy there. The three main branches of this family seem to migrated to Agropoli from the interior of the Cilento. However, I do not think they were closely related, if at all.
