  • Note:
    William Batte Sr., the son of Capt. Henry Batte and Mary Lo und, married Mary Stratton [7046.2.4.2] in August 1704 acco rding to the St. John’s Parish Register. His marriage licen se was recorded in Henrico County in May 1704. Mary was t he sister of Edward Stratton III [7046.2.4.4] who married A nne Batte [1762.3]. In 1704 the year he married, William wa s paying quit rents on 750 acres in Prince George County . On 14 May 1728, William bought 40 acres on the south si de of Baileys Run in Bristol Parish from Edward Mitchell an d his wife, Margaret. The deed excluded the Mitchell famil y burying ground.
    William Batte of Prince George County obtained four land pa tents of 740 acres in Isle of Wight County: 250 acres in 17 15 , 170 acres in 1719 , 150 acres in 1723 , and 170 acr es in1732.
    On 17 September 1731, Batte obtained a patent to 200 acre s in Prince George County on the north side of the Littl e Nottoway River above Peterson’sRun. When they created Ame lia County in 1735 this land fell in the new county.In 173 7 he was farming his land on the Little Nottoway River in A melia County with slaves Roger, Cate, and Boatswain. On 8 A ugust 1735, William registered his livestock mark at the Am elia County court house. He marked his hogs with a crop o n their left ear and with cut tails. His black cattle ha d a crop on the left ear. Livestock marks helped to identif y freely roaming cattle or hogs.
    We know little about William Batte and his family because o f the substantial destruction of Prince George County recor ds. He was evidently a prominent citizen for, in 1737-38, h e was twice foreman of a grand jury and often the foreman o f a civil jury. As they called him Mr. William Batte he wa s evidently of above average social standing.
    On 17 November 1738, John Donen, John McKee, and two slaves , Sam and Phil, stole a young steer and hog belonging to Wi lliam Batte. One of “His Majesty’s Justices” apprehended Do nen and jailed him. Though Donen denied the allegations, th e court kept him and McKee, an accessory, in jail until the y could make a £25 bail. Sam and Phil received twenty-fiv e lashes on their bare backs at the whipping post. Batte la ter brought debt cases against the two white defendants bu t the court dismissed them.
    The Bristol Parish vestry appointed William Batte and Mile s Thweatt to procession land in part of the parish. When th ey went to mark the boundary between property belonging t o Batte and Samuel Jordan a dispute arose. William Stark , a churchwarden, asked the Prince George County court to o rder the county surveyor and a jury to settle the differenc es.
    William died in Prince George County, Virginia (will date d 9 Dec. 1754, recorded 11 Jan. 1755). His wife was alread y dead.

    DO NOT TAKE THIS WORK AS GOSPEL. I had to cut the tree to only relatives as it is too big for one data base. (Many families are split up on the three files) My other trees are Hardin Clay Roots #2 and Hardin Clay Roots #3 (count started 22 Nov 2010) free counters
