The name Batter is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a coppersmith or a dealer in baterie. The surname Batter is possibly derived from the Old French word bateor, meaning one who beats, a term which has been applied to a beater of cloth or fuller. The surname may also be a short form of the word orbatour, which means a beater of gold.

The surname Batter was first found in Berkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Batter Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Batter include Beater, Beeter, Beatere, Betere, Batere, Bettere and many more.

Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Batter were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
