Patten Coat of Arms, Family Crest and Patten Family History


Patten Family History


The Patten ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Patrick', Patten is a baptismal name. Variants include Paton, Patton, Padon, Pate, Patt, Patey, Peyton and Payton. This name is often of Scottish descent spreading to Ireland, England and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a David Paton and Jane Blair, who were married in Saint Georges, Hanover Square, in the year 1774. An Edward Patten and Dorothy Wainforde were granted a marriage in London in the year 1583. The American general George Patton, 1885-1945, traces his line back to Robert Patton, who had emigrated from Scotland, to Virginia, in 1770. In Ireland this name can be of immigrant origin, especially in Ulster Province. Patten and Peyton are both also derived from the native Gaelic O'Peatain sept which is found in records in Ballybofey in County Donegal as early as 1178.The Patten family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Patten descendants.
