The Pattipas family has descended through the lines of the ancient Normans that came to England following their Conquest of England in 1066. The Pattipas name reveals that an early member was a person who never tired of walking or a soldier who had lost his foot in battle. The name Pattipas is an Anglicized form of the Old French word pedefer, or pied de fer, which means iron foot. The family name Pattipas was brought to England after the Norman Conquest, when William the Conqueror gave his friends and relatives most of the land formerly owned by Anglo-Saxon aristocrats. They imported a vast number of Norman French personal names, which largely replaced traditional Old English personal names among the upper and middle classes.

Pattipas Early Origins



The surname Pattipas was first found in Worcestershire where, they held a family seat after the Norman Conquest by William the Conqueror in 1066 A.D., where the name meant literally "Petite" and "Fere," meaning "the little wild beast," a soubriquet which has been corrupted to Pettifer, although a distant relationship has been claimed to Potiphar, the Faro's Captain of the Guard.

Pattipas Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Pattipas family name include Pettifer, Pettipher, Petipher, Petifer, Petiver and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Pattipas family to immigrate North America: Elizabeth Pettiford settled in Maryland in 1720.
