The surname Battershell was first found in Devon, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names.

Battershell has been recorded under many different variations, including Battershill, Battishill, Battershell, Batteshell and many more.
