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.)
His son, High de Pateshull (d. 1241), was Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield. Martin de Pateshull (d. 1229) was judge and dean of London and was probably a native either of Pattishall, Northamptonshire. He may have been related to the aforementioned Simon de Pateshull.

Migration of the Pattesole family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Pattesole arrived in North America very early: Robert Pateshall who settled in New England
