The name Bageler comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of Britain. It was a name for 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 Bageler family to the New World and Oceana
To escape the unstable social climate in England
of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Bageler were among those contributors: 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..
