Pachett is a name that was carried to England in the great wave of migration from Normandy following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Pachett family lived in Oxfordshire. The name, however, is a reference to Pachet, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Some of the family remained in Normandy as seen by this entry: "William Pachet, Normandy 1180." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Pachett Early Origins



The surname Pachett was first found in Oxfordshire and Derbyshire. Mickleover, Derbyshire was an early homestead of the family. "The manor was given, with Findern, Littleover, and Potlac, by William the Conqueror, to Burton Abbey; Henry VIII. granted these manors to Sir William Paget." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Presumably the same Sir William was granted estates in Aston-Upon-Trent. "The manor was granted after the Reformation to Sir William Paget." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Pachetts to arrive on North American shores: David Paget settled with his wife Maudlin and children in Maryland in 1711; Antony Pagett settled in Maryland in 1711; Jonathon Pagett settled in Boston in 1767.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Per il suo contrario
Motto Translation: By its reverse.
