Paddeshull History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Paddeshull is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the parish of Pattishall found in Northamptonshire.

Early Origins of the Paddeshull family


The surname Paddeshull was first found in Northamptonshire at Pattishall a village and parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Pascelle. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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.) 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 Paddeshull family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Paddeshulls to arrive in North America: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England in 1655.
