Migration of the Batbie family to the New World and Oceana
Gradually becoming disenchanted with life in Ireland many of these uprooted families sailed aboard the armada of sailing ships known as the "White Sails" which plied the stormy Atlantic. These overcrowded ships often arrived with only 60 to 70% of their original passenger list, many dying of cholera, typhoid, dysentery or small pox. In North America, some of the first immigrants who could be considered kinsmen of the Batbie family name Batbie, or who bore a variation of the surname were John Badeby who arrived in Virginia in 1623; Audre Batbie, aged 11, who arrived at Ellis Island from Pans, France, in 1907; Jean Batbie, aged 27, who arrived at Ellis Island from Pau, France, in 1916.
