From "James Patton and the Appalachian Colonists" by Patricia Givens Johnson:

The Pattons were originally landed gentry seated at Ferrochie, Fifeshire, Scotland.  The progenitor of the Irish branch of the family, William Patton, M.A. was born in Scotland; had immigrated to Northern Ireland during the King James Plantation.  He was in County Donegal by 1626 as Rector of the parishes of Ramoigh and Clonmary, Barony of Raphoe and later at Aughnish, Barony of Kilmacrenan.  Rev. William Patton and his wife, Margaret, made their home at an estate called "Groghan" and reared to sons, Henry (Sr.) and John.
