Where did the English Bator family come from? What is the English Bator family crest and coat of arms? When did the Bator family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Bator family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Bator comes from when its first bearer worked as a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Bator is possibly derived from the Old French word bateor, meaning one who beats, a term which has been applied to a beater of cloth or fuller. The surname may also be a short form of the word orbatour, which means a beater of gold.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Bator include Beater, Beeter, Beatere, Betere, Batere, Bettere and many more.

First found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Bator or a variant listed above: Charles Bater who arrived in Virgina in 1642. Thomas Bater sailed to America in 1772.
