The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Patchett family name to the British Isles. They lived in Oxfordshire. The name, however, is a reference to Pachet, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. Some of the family remained in Normandy as seen by this entry: "William Pachet, Normandy 1180." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Patchett Early Origins



The surname Patchett was first found in Oxfordshire and Derbyshire. Mickleover, Derbyshire was an early homestead of the family. "The manor was given, with Findern, Littleover, and Potlac, by William the Conqueror, to Burton Abbey; Henry VIII. granted these manors to Sir William Paget." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Presumably the same Sir William was granted estates in Aston-Upon-Trent. "The manor was granted after the Reformation to Sir William Paget." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Patchett Spelling Variations

Patchett Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Paget, Pagit, Pagitt, Pagett, Pagget, Paggett and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Patchett or a variant listed above:

Motto

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: Per il suo contrario
Motto Translation: By its reverse.
