I saw that Richard Sharp is interested in the pateman family name when he replied to the New Forest Pateman article. My family come from the nottingham area I think, My grandfather, William Pateman is 85 years old. I could check on this information. We have resided in Northamptonshire since before my birth 28 years ago. I have a general interest in my family name and would be interested in any information about Patemans in the Northants and Nottinghamshire area.
