An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The chronicles of the Batell family suggest that their ancestors may have been Viking settlers. Their surname comes from a place name of Norse origins, from when they lived any of several place names in England, such as Battle in Sussex. Contrary to what one would expect, the name is not a nickname or occupational name derived from the word battle.

Batell Early Origins



The surname Batell was first found in Berwickshire an ancient county of Scotland, presently part of the Scottish Borders Council Area, located in the eastern part of the Borders Region of Scotland, Scotland.
