The history of the name Patrish dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from a member of the family who worked as a hunter or someone who caught partridges. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. Occupational names have remained fairly common in the modern period. This is attested to by the continuing appearance of occupational suffixes at the end of many English surnames. Some of these suffixes include: herd, monger, maker, hewer, smith, and wright.

Patrish Early Origins



The surname Patrish was first found in Kent. However, the parish of Miserden, Yorkshire tells an important story of the family's early lineage. "The manor of Wishanger, here, is of very ancient date, and was the seat of the Partriges, of whom William Partrige, of Cirencester and Wishanger, was summoned by the heralds at their first visitation of the county in the reign of Henry VIII.; from him the manor descended lineally for ten generations, and it was the principal seat of the family until the commencement of the present century, when it was sold. The manor-house, though partly taken down and otherwise injured, is still standing, as a farmhouse; the porch bears the arms of Partrige impaling those of Ernley of Wiltshire, on a large stone over the entrance, Robert Partrige having married into the Ernley family in the 16th century."

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Patrish were among those contributors: John Partridge, who arrived in Virginia in 1615; Richard Partridge, who arrived in Virginia in 1620; Joe Partridge, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Mary Partridge, who arrived in Massachusetts in 1636.
