The ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of England
produced the name of Bageldor. It was given to a knight, who in the exercise of chivalry has won his spurs, but hopes to be elected into some order. However, the nickname batchelor
has remained somewhat of a puzzle to etymologists because it implied a sense of partial achievement of a desired goal rather than having a concrete origin. For example, a Bachelor of Arts is a person who has achieved a certain scholastic honor, but who also aspired to a higher degree of master or doctorate. A bachelor in common life was a person who had attained the age of manhood, but had not fulfilled the social relation of entering into matrimony.

Migration of the Bageldor family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Bageldor arrived in North America very early: Henry Batchelor, a brewer, who settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1636; William Batchelor settled in Charles Town in 1634; and became a Freeman in 1644..
