Origins of surname

Pattison, of which Patson is supposedly a variant, although we have reservations about this, is one of the most popular of Scottish surnames, and is a patronymic form of the male given name Pat, a short form of Patrick. Patrick derives ultimately from the Latin Patricius, patrician, or "son of a noble father", a member of the patrician class, the Roman hereditary aristocracy. Patrick has been chiefly used in Ireland and Scotland, but was widespread in the North of England from the 12th Century, giving rise to a number of surnames including: Patrickson, Pate, Paty, Paton, Patten, Pattison and Patterson, according to the surname database

Early records

Patsons have been present in Jersey since the 16th century and the first baptism was recorded in St Helier in 1602. The family lived in St Helier and St Brelade but appears to have died out in the mid-19th century.
