The name Badyn was brought to England
in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest
of 1066. Badyn is based on the Old English given name Batte,
a pet form of Bartholomew.
Early Origins of the Badyn family

, where the “family of Batten have been seated for nearly six centuries. They are considered of Flemish

Migration of the Badyn family to the New World and Oceana
The unstable environment in England
at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland
, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Badyn arrived in North America very early: Robert Batten who settled in New England
in 1648; William Batten settled in Virginia in 1654; Mary Batton settled in New England
