About the study
This is a place holder for this One-Name Study profile page.The Batkin name which is derived from "son of Bartholomew" seems to have originated in Staffordshire, with early entries in the Parish Registers of Tatenhill, Burton upon Trent, Stafford, and Stone. My own direct line was in Tatenhill until the early 1800's when two brothers moved into Burton upon Trent. The 1881 census has 187 entries for Batkin, with over half in Staffordshire. Many emigrated to Australia and other countries.
