An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017

The surname Batle 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.

Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the Scottish name Batle or a variant listed above, including: Elizabeth Battle who settled in Virginia in 1654; Matthew Battle settled in Virginia in 1647; John settled there in 1654; Thomas in 1652; another Thomas settled in Massachusetts in 1635.
