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 Paddishall family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Paddishall or a variant listed above: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England in 1655.
