PANIN FAMILY, a noble family, counts since 1767, known since the 16th century. Ivan Vasilievich Panin (1673-1736) and his cousin, Alexey Ivanovich Panin (1675-1762), Captain of the Semenovsky Life Guards Regiment, settled on Kotlin Island by order of Tsar Peter the Great in 1712. Alexey Ivanovich Panin was the last to be ordered to move to St. Petersburg and build a house there (1714); in 1717-20, he was an inspector of works in Kronstadt and Oranienbaum; in 1734-40, he was President of the Revision Collegium. Several members of the family were associated with St. Petersburg in the late 18th - 19th centuries. Nikita Ivanovich Panin (1718-83, St. Petersburg), was a Count (1767) and a First Rank Actual Privy Counsellor (1773). He was the tutor and Chief Staff Master of Tsesarevitch Pavel Petrovich (1760-73), a Senator (1762), Senior Member (Head) of the Foreign Affairs Office (1763-81), and an initiator of Senate reforms (1763). He owned the building at 20 Bolshaya Morskaya Street. He was buried in the Holy Annunciation Burial Vault at the Alexander Nevsky Lavra (on the tomb is an architecturally decorated vestibule with a bust of Panin made by sculptor I.P. Matros and the inscription, "Friend of Humanity"). His nephew was Nikita Petrovich Panin (1770-1837), Vice Chancellor (1800), whose son, Viktor Nikitich Panin (1801-74), was the Minister of Justice (1841-62), Member of the State Assembly (1839), and Director of the Third Section of His Imperial Majesty's Own Chancellery (1864-67).
