The name Batelyn is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in or around the settlement of Batley in the West Riding of the county of Yorkshire. The place-name is derived from the Old English personal name Bata, which was probably a nickname for a stout or burly man related to a word meaning cudgel, and the Old English word leah, meaning wood or clearing.

Batelyn Early Origins

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Batelyns to arrive in North America: members of the family who sailed to the New World during the 17th to the 20th centuries.
