The name Paddinson came to England with the ancestors of the Paddinson family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Paddinson family lived the given name Patrick. It was largely as a result of the fame of the 5th century Romano-British saint of this name that Patrick was such a popular given name in the Middle Ages. It derives from the Latin Patricus, meaning the son of a noble father, a member of the patrician class, and a member of the Roman hereditary aristocracy.

Early Origins of the Paddinson family


The surname Paddinson was first found in the East Riding of Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Cherry Burton. Conjecturally they are descended from the holder of this village, Beverly, who held the King's Lands and those of the Archbishop of York in that area as shown in the taking of the Domesday Book census in 1086 A.D.

Paddinson Spelling Variations


Multitudes of spelling variations are a hallmark of Anglo Norman names. Most of these names evolved in the 11th and 12th century, in the time after the Normans introduced their own Norman French language into a country where Old and Middle English had no spelling rules and the languages of the court were French and Latin. To make matters worse, medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, so names frequently appeared differently in the various documents in which they were recorded. The name was spelled Pattinson, Patinson, Pattonson, Patonson, Pattenson and many more.

Migration of the Paddinson family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Paddinson family to the New World and Oceana


Because of this political and religious unrest within English society, many people decided to immigrate to the colonies. Families left for Ireland, North America, and Australia in enormous numbers, traveling at high cost in extremely inhospitable conditions. The New World in particular was a desirable destination, but the long voyage caused many to arrive sick and starving. Those who made it, though, were welcomed by opportunities far greater than they had known at home in England. Many of these families went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Paddinson or a variant listed above: Thomas Pattinson who settled in New York State in 1804.

The Paddinson Motto

The Paddinson 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: Finem respice
Motto Translation: Consider the end.
