The history of the name Batchelar begins in the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in 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.

Batchelar Early Origins

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Batchelar or a variant listed above: 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..
