BATT Family History

This unsual and interesting name has three possible origns, the first of which is a patronymic form of the medieval personal name "Batte", meaning "son of Batte", itself a pet form of "Bartholomew" which means "rich in land". The second origin also patronymic is from the Olde English (Anglo\Saxon) personal name "Bata", used as a nickname for a stout, thickset person from the word "batt", a cudgel. The third origin is topographic, from the Olde English pre 7th Century "bata", used in a transferred sense of "profit, gain", to mean "fat pasture", as in the placename "Batcombe" in Somerset. The recording of Walter atte Batte in Somerset in 1327 is an example of this use...
