The Anglo-Saxon name Baddesfeart comes from when its first bearer worked as a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie, which is a term for beaten copper or brassware. The surname Baddesfeart 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.

Baddesfeart Early Origins



The surname Baddesfeart was first found in Suffolk, at Battisford, a parish in the union and hundred of Bosmere and Claydon. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Batsford, a parish in the union of Shipston-on-Stour, Upper division of the hundred of Kiftsgate, in the county of Gloucester. Today, Batsford is the site of the Moreton-in-Marsh and Batsford War Memorial which commemorates the village's dead of two World Wars. Batsford has traditionally been the smaller of the two locals with a population of 79 people in the late 1800s while the former Battisford had a population of 520 at that time.

Baddesfeart Spelling Variations



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 Baddesfeart include Batsford, Battisford, Batesford, Bateford, Batesforde, Batisford, Battsford, Batsforde,Botsford, Botsforth and many more.

The Great Migration



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 Baddesfeart or a variant listed above: Mary Battson, who arrived in Virginia in 1690; Thomas Battson, who arrived in Barbados in 1679; Amos Botsford, and his family, who arrived in Annapolis, Nova Scotia in 1782.
