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


The age-old tribe of the Strathclyde Britons of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first people to use the name Batwel. 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.

Batwel Early Origins



The surname Batwel 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.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainties and discrimination faced in Scotland, many decided to head out for North Ameri ca. Once they arrived, many Scots fought with relish in the American War of Independence; some went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Many ancestors of these Scots have recovered their lost national heritage in the 20th century through Clan organizations and Scottish historical societies. Among the settlers to North America were: Elizabeth Battle who settled in Virginia in 1654; Matthew Battle settled in Virginia in 1647; John settled there in 1654; Thomas in 1652; another Thomas settled in Massachusetts in 1635.
