PATRON Family History

This unusual and interesting name is of early medieval Italian origin, and is a good example of that large number of surnames created from the habitual use of a nickname, in this instance a status name for a "master" of various sorts. The name derives from the Italian "patrone", master, from the Latin "patronus", a derivative of "pater", father. This term had various senses during in the Middle Ages; it was applied to the master of a ship, for example, and also to the former owner of a freed serf, who still enjoyed certain rights over him.
