The name Battane arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Battane comes from the Old English given name Batte, a pet form of Bartholomew.

Battane Early Origins



The surname Battane was first found in Somerset, where the “family of Batten have been seated for nearly six centuries. They are considered of Flemish origin. Among eminent merchants of the staple (wool-trade) temp. Edward I., were several De Beteyns and Batyns.” [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Battane Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Battane are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Battane include Batten, Battin, Battyne, Baten, Batin, Batton and many more.

The Great Migration



Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Battane, or a variant listed above: Robert Batten who settled in New England in 1648; William Batten settled in Virginia in 1654; Mary Batton settled in New England in 1749.
