Patchell History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Patchell family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Essex. The name, however, is a reference to Pasci, in Eure, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Early Origins of the Patchell family


The surname Patchell was first found in Essex but the family were originally from Pasci in Eure, Normandy and were granted lands in Essex by Henry, Duke of Normandy through Robert, Earl of Leicester, at Much and Great Baddow. While the surname was firmly established in this are for many years, searching various rolls for the surname revealed a John Pascal in the Assize Rolls of Warwickshire in 1221, and a William Pascale in 1275 in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire.

Migration of the Patchell family to the New World and Oceana


The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Patchell arrived in North America very early:
