Origins of surname

This is the French word for 'battle', but experts on French surnames cannot agree on how it became a surname. There are bizarre suggestions from otherwise usually reliable sources suggesting that it might have been given to somebody with an inclination to self-harm. It seems much more likely that it either referred to a participant in a battle, or to someone living in one of the many locations throughout France with bataille as part of their name, such as Castillon-la-Bataille, where the final battle of the Hundred Years War was fought.

Early records

The name first appeared in Jersey records in the mid-19th century.
