Patterson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: Irish , Scottish


The surname Patterson comes from the Irish O Casain. At one time it was anglicized as Kissane, but this is now obsolete as a variant of Patterson. Patterson is a somewhat unusual variant brought about through pseudo-translation. "Casan" means "path," locally pronounced in Connacht as "Pat" which strangely brings about Patterson.


Early Origins of the Patterson family


The surname Patterson was first found in Connacht (Irish: Connachta, (land of the) descendants of Conn), where it belonged to one of the eight Sodhans. The Sodhans were septs which were located in the Hy Many (Ui Maine) country, but whose ancestors were not of that group.
