The name Battarbee is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived the place named Battersby in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Battersby Township was in the parish of Ingleby Greenbow. The place-name is derived from an Old English word denoting Bothvarr's town. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Battarbees to arrive in North America: Nicholas Battersby, who came to Maryland in 1668; George Battersby, who came to Antigua (Antego) in 1678; Christopher Battersby, who came to Barbados in 1679.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Ante Honorem Est Humilitas
Motto Translation: Before honor is humility.
