Patmore Family History

Patmore Surname Meaning

English: habitational name from Podmore in Staffordshire which is recorded as Podemore in 1086 Poddemere in the 13th century and Pademor in 1300 or possibly from Podimore (Somerset) or Patmore Hall in Albury (Hertfordshire) which is recorded as Patemere in 1086. The Staffordshire placename derives from Old English pode padde ‘toad’ + mōr ‘moor’ or perhaps mere ‘pool’. The Hertfordshire placename derives from the Old English personal name P(e)atta + Old English mere. The etymology of the Somerset placename is uncertain due to a lack of medieval forms.
