My lineage comes from Scot-Irish.  My family member (Patton) was beheaded in Scotland and I need help with more info
asked in Genealogy Help by Kim Slick G2G Rookie (220 points)
Do you have his first name, birth year, marriage or death year? Would you know what county and or city in Scotland he was born in or died in?

If not, the same kind of information for the earliest Patton ancestor that you have knowledge of, might be a way to trace back the the ancestor in your question.
I am pretty sure the death was in the 1800's.  I heard his name was Matthew but not sure.  This was in Glasgow Scotland.  My grandfather was Norbert Patton.

It is Matthew "The Martyr" Patton.  Died December 19, 1666 (62-70) 
Glasgow, Lanarkshire, UK (Beheaded)

Last name: Patton

This famous and popular surname is Anglo-Scottish. Recorded as Paton, Patton, Patten, Padon, Paddon, and the true patronymic of Patonson, It has two known origins. Firstly it may be a short or fused form of the ancient personal name Patrick, as in Pat + the diminutive suffix '-in' meaning 'Little Pat' or perhaps 'son of Pat', or secondly it may have been a nickname for the son of a man with a cropped hair or was bald. This is from the Middle English word "pate" meaning head or skull. The early charters of Scotland mention Thomas Pattoun of Aberdeen in 1538, and Thomas Patton of Dundee who was killed at the battle of Pinkie in 1547. In America General George Patton (1885 - 1945) of Second World War fame was born in California from a family who had a long military tradition. His earliest known ancestor was Robert Patton, born in Scotland in about 1755, and who emigrated to Virginia in 1770. However the earliest known recordings of the family name are English, of which the first is probably Hugo Patun. He is recorded in the Patent Rolls of the county of Northumberland in the year 1230. This was during the reign of King Henry IIIrd of England, 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was sometimes known as the Poll Tax-. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and in Lanarkshire. Was your grandfather born in Scotland? If not, where was he born? Do you know what year he was born and in what location? Lots of Matthew Pattons in the 1800's in Lanarkshire.

thank you!!
I don't know if you are connected with General George Patton but he was certainly a formidable General in WWII. He was also in WWI where he was wounded.
