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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Battelyn or a variant listed above: members of the family who sailed to the New World during the 17th to the 20th centuries.
