Paddock is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Paddock family once lived in the village of Puttock in the county of Sussex. This habitation surname was originally derived from the Old English word puttoc which means kite, denoting a bird belonging to the hawk family.

Paddock Early Origins



The surname Paddock was first found in Sussex where one of the first records of the family was Aelfricus (Aefric) Puttoc (died 1051) Archbishop of York (1023-1041) and Bishop of Worcester. He may have been the bishop who crowned Harold Harefoot king of England in 1036. However, when Harthacnut became king, he and others were charged to disinter Harold's body and throw it away. By the Battle of Hastings they had branched westward to Somerset where Aluried Puttoch held estates at that time.

Paddock Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Paddock family name include Puttoch, Puttock, Puttoc, Puttick, Puttoche, Puttocke, Putticke, Putteck, Puttex, Putton, Putten, Potton, Puttone, Pottone, Pottock, Pottocke, Pottoch and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Paddock surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
