BADMAN Family History

This name is an occupational term, descriptive of a man who would have been the servant of Batt or Badd. The personal name Batt has three possible origins. It could be a derivative from the Middle English perform of Bartholemew. It may be a Middle English survival of 'bata' a word for a cudgel and hence a byname for a belligerent person. Alternatively it may derive from a topographical name of uncertain meaning. A record exists from Somerset of one Walter-atte-Batte 1327. In the form of Batt the surname is common in Sussex variant forms of Badman occur as Batman and Bateman.
