The family history of the ancient name Padgett was found in the archives. The name Padgett is usually an occupational name describing someone who was a young servitor, a page or a personal attendant. Variants of this name include Pagett, Paget, Page, Paige and many others. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Lambert Page of County Yorkshire who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls', England, in the year 1273. A William Paget was recorded in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in the year 1327. A John le Page was recorded in the 'Writs of Parliament' in the year 1300. In Scotland a John Page was recorded as being one of the Scots prisoners taken in Dunbar Castle in the year 1296. In Ireland this name is found in Ulster and the Galway area where it has been Gaelicized as 'Mac Giolla'. The many variants of Padgett are also to be found in the County Dublin and surrounding areas.The Padgett 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 Padgett descendants.
