Baddon is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The name Baddon came from the Old English given name Batte, a pet form of Bartholomew.

Early Origins of the Baddon family


The surname Baddon 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]

Baddon Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Baddon has been recorded under many different variations, including Batten, Battin, Battyne, Baten, Batin, Batton and many more.

Migration of the Baddon family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Baddon family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Baddons were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Robert Batten who settled in New England in 1648; William Batten settled in Virginia in 1654; Mary Batton settled in New England in 1749.
