Pat History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Pat is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from the baptismal name for Patrick. In the religious naming tradition the Pat surname was bestowed in honor of a religious figure. In Europe, the Christian Church was one of the most powerful influences on the formation of given names. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Middle English word "pate" which meant "head" or "skull". In this latter case, the name would have been a nickname.


Early Origins of the Pat family


The surname Pat was first found in Cambridgeshire, where one of the first records of the name was Walter Patte who was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. The Yorkshire Poll Tax records of 1379 list the following: Willelmus Payt, and Cecilia Payt (who we presume are related); and Johannes Patte.

Migration of the Pat family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Richard Pate, who settled in Virginia in 1636; as did William Pate in 1637; John Pate in 1651; Henry and Catherine Pate in 1656; and Elizabeth Pate in 1663..
