Subject: [PATE] The Ancient Pate Surname of England -- 16th Century
Date: Wed, 18 Apr 2012 07:52:45 -0500

The three centuries posted yesterday were complete listings of the Pate surname for 1200 through 1499, found primarily in official documents.

As mentioned yesterday, by the 1500s, we are able to prepare genealogies for the prominent Pate family lines, particularly in Leicestershire and Gloucestershire. Below is the list of Pate names for the 1500s, which include persons not readily identifiable to families with origins in those two locations.

This list includes Pate surnames in Wales and Scotland, the first located outside of England. It is assumed that these were migrations from England.
