The ancestors of the name Paddox date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Paddox family 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.

Paddox Early Origins



The surname Paddox 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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. 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 Paddox or a variant listed above: David Putten who landed in America in 1753; William Puttex (Puttecks) settled in Barbados in 1634.
