BATSON Family History

This unusual name is one of the patronymic forms of the medieval English personal name "Batt", and means "son of Batt" or "Bate", itself either a pet form of "Bartholomew" or from an olde English pre 7th Century personal name "Bata". Bartholomew is derived from the Aramaic patronymic "bartalmay", which means "having many furrows" and therefore "rich in land", and was a very popular personal name in the Middle Ages, partly due to the fame of St. Bartholomew, the patron saint of tanners, vintners and butlers.
