Padgett Family HistoryThis interesting surname is a diminutive form of Page, which is of Old French origin, and an occupational name for a young servant, a personal attendant in a noble's house, from the Old French, Middle English "page", ultimately deriving from the Greek "paidion", a boy, child. Padgett itself contains the intrusive "-d-", due to dialectal influences, and the diminutive suffix "-ett"; hence, "little page". Variants of the surname in the modern idiom include Paget, Pag(g)itt and Pagett. A family called Paget, of humble origins, first became prominent when William Paget (1506 - 1563) acquired large estates from Henry V111 on the dissolution of the monasteries, and also held the title Earl of Uxbridge, from 1714.
