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.) Before this appointment, he was High Sheriff of Essex (1193-1194), High Sheriff of Hertfordshire (1193-1194), and High Sheriff of Northamptonshire (1194-1203.)

His son, High de Pateshull (d. 1241), was Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield. Martin de Pateshull (d. 1229) was judge and dean of London and was probably a native either of Pattishall, Northamptonshire. He may have been related to the aforementioned Simon de Pateshull.

Migration of the Battishull family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Battishull were among those contributors: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England in 1655.
