Baddan is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. Baddan is a name that comes from the Old English given name B atte, a pet form of Bartholomew.

Baddan Early Origins



The surname Baddan was first found in Somerset, where the “family of Batten have been seated for nearly six centuries. They are considered of Flemish origin. Among eminent merchants of the staple (wool-trade) temp. Edward I., were several De Beteyns and Batyns.” [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Baddan Spelling Variations

Baddan Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Batten, Battin, Battyne, Baten, Batin, Batton and many more.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Baddan name or one of its variants: Robert Batten who settled in New England in 1648; William Batten settled in Virginia in 1654; Mary Batton settled in New England in 1749.
