The history of the Patenhull family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the parish of Pattishall found in Northamptonshire.

Patenhull Early Origins



The surname Patenhull was first found in Northamptonshire at Pattishall a village and parish that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Pascelle. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Later in the 12th century the village was listed as Patesshille and literally meant "hill of a man called Paetti," having derived from the Old English personal name + "hyll." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

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.)

Patenhull Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Patenhull include Pateshall, Pateshull and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Patenhull or a variant listed above: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England in 1655.
