The Anglo-Saxon name Pates comes from the baptismal name for Patrick. In the religious naming tradition the Pates surname was bestowed in honor of a religious figure. In Europe, the Christian Church was one of the most powerful influences on the formation of given names. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from the Middle English word "pate" which meant "head" or "skull". In this latter case, the name would have been a nickname.

Pates Early Origins



The surname Pates was first found in Cambridgeshire, where one of the first records of the name was Walter P atte who was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. The Yorkshire Poll Tax records of 1379 list the following: Willelmus Payt, and Cecilia Payt (who we presume are related); and Johannes Patte.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Pates family emigrate to North America:
