"batey" family name, ancestry, and history


Batey is a family name that originated in the North of England and Scotland. Some families came from the Carlisle and Yorkshire area, however, some have been found as far south as Bristol. One particular line of Batys can be traced to the marriage of John Baty to Jane Jackson in 1671 in the church of St Mary the Virgin, in High Heskett, Cumbria (see Beatty Project 2000 lineage 291). That particular line remained in High Heskett for the next two hundred years. while others came from near Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in the east. One theory is that the word 'Batey' comes from the Old English word 'bāt' and the diminutive suffix '-ey', which loosely means "small boat". This suggests that it may be an occupational name, meaning that the family was involved in the maritime industry in the past. Similar names include Bateman, Bates, Bate. Another theory suggests that it is a diminutive of the name Bartholomew. The name Baty is also found in France, where it may be a derivative of the surname Bataille (transl:fight). [1. genealogy.org] As was the case with many early immigrants,their last names were changed when they entered the USA to make those last names more English. [2. America - a History, the immigration years] Mostly written as Baty, the sufix -ey was usually a result of legal name changes. The name is not necessarily related to the English surname of Bateman, Bates, or Bate, although easily construed as such due to the similarity in spelling. The pronunciation of Battaille was sufficiently close to make the change to Baty/Batey by immigration officials; as names were changed based on what sounded similar in English at the time. [2.] DNA testing on a Baty of Cumbrian descent has found close matches with others bearing the following surnames: Batey; Beatty; Beattie; Beaty; Baity; Beattey and Bates.
