The name Batchlor has a history dating as far back as the Anglo-Saxon tribes 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.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations.
