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


The chronicles of the Battell family indicate that the name was first used by the Strathclyde Britons of the Scottish/English Borderlands. It is derived from 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.

Battell Early Origins



The surname Battell 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.
