Battyn is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Battyn family name comes from the Old English given name Batte, a pet form of Bartholomew.

Early Origins of the Battyn family


The surname Battyn was first found in Somerset, where the family of Batten have been seated for nearly six centuries. They are considered of Flemish origin. Among eminent merchants of the staple (wool-trade) temp. Edward I., were several De Beteyns and Batyns. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Battyn family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Battyn family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Battyn were among those contributors: Robert Batten who settled in New England in 1648; William Batten settled in Virginia in 1654; Mary Batton settled in New England in 1749.
