Later in the 12th century the village was listed as Patesshille and literally meant "hill of a man called Paetti," having derived from the Old English personal name + "hyll." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Today the civil parish of Pattishall includes the villages of Pattishall, Eastcote, Astcote and Dalscote, part of Fosters Booth, and the hamlet of Cornhill. One of the first records of the name was Simon of Pattishall (or Pateshull) who died in 1217. He was an English judge and civil servant who is considered the first Chief Justice of the Common Pleas (1204-1217.)

Baddishall Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Baddishall family name include Pateshall, Pateshull and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Baddishall surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England in 1655.
