Thomas Battelle, whose descendants comprise, as it is 
supposed, all o7~the name of Battelle, with various spell- 
ings, in the Northern and Western sections of the United 
States, was of Dedham, Norfolk county, Massachusetts. 
The family of Battle, in Noftli Carolina, to which Judge 
William H. Battle belongs, is, possibly, descended from 
Thomas Battelle; but this is uncertain. The tradition in 
the North Ciirolina family is, that its ancestor came directly 
from England to Virginia. Family tradition can not, how- 
ever, be relied on, and this family may be descended from 
Thomas Battelle, perhaps, through Jonathan, a son of 
Thomas, a branch of the family not very full}' traced. 

The descendants of Thomas Battelle, in the male line, 
seem to be much less numerous than' those of most other 
progenitors who immigrated to this countrj^ at as early a 
period, and whose genealogies have been published. In 
what year, and from what part of England Thomas Bat- 
telle came over to the Massachusetts Bay Colony, is not 
ascertained. The name of Battelle was recorded as a fam- 
ily name in England as early as the twelfth century. It 
would seem to have been of Norman origin. It had two 
coats of arms. 

Thomas Battelle, in his numerous signatures, which re- 
main in the public records of Dedham, always spells his 
name as here written. The name was probably pronounced 
by him Baitaly, as his pastor records his name with that 
spelling in every instance, and it is also thus spelled in other 
records. 

The first record in which the name of Thomas Battelle 
appears in Dedhara, is that of his marriage, recorded thus : 
•' Thomas Battaly and Mary Fisher was married the 5 of 

(5) 



G 

7 mo., 1648." In the same year, November 4th, there was 
a grant to him by Henry J>rooke, one of the original pro- 
prietors of the town, of four acres of land, adjoining the 
house lot of Rev. John Allen, the pastor. This lot of four 
acres was not his house lot, which was another lot else- 
where described in the records, so as to identify it with the 
house lot of his descendant, Ebbnezer Battelle, a hundred 
years later. A portion of the grants of land to him were 
clearly the same which have remained in the family in the 
Western part of the original township, formerly called the 
Springfield precinct, which is now the town of Dover. By 
the indications of the record, Thomas Battelle enjoyed his 
share of the aj-pointments of the town — that of Selectman 
in 1677 and four other years, and of Town Clerk from 1687 

for years. The latter preserves to us the personal 

memorial of a distinct and practical handw^riting. His 
property, as indicated by the assessment for taxes, seems to 
have been above the average of that of his townsmen ; his 
average was above the eleventh in a list of one hundred or 
more. As his sons came forward, and age settled upon 
him, a division of his property is maiiifest. In 1691, the 
year of his wife's death, his assessment is nearly a third 
less than that of his son John. In 1698, his assessment, on 
a small rate, is at £1 6s., John's at £4 3s., Jonathan's, £3 4s. 
In 1705, only the names of the two sons appear. This 
looks naturally to the close of life, with the end of its cares 
and responsibilities. The final record follows two years 
later: "Thomas Battelle, the aged, deceased February 
8, 1706." 

Mary Fisher, the wife of Thomas Battelle, was the 
daughter of Joshua Fisher, who was the son of " Fisher of 
Syleharn" (England). Joshua Fisher, and his family, Avith 
his brother Antony and family, went to America.^ Joshua 
Fisher settled first at Dedham, but afterward removed to 
Mcdfield. He made Thomas Battellk executor of his will. 
By the church record, " Mary, the wife of Thomas Battaly, 

* Chandler Manuscript, Brilisli Museum, quoted in tlie Genealogical 
Register. 



was admitted to the church, 2 of 11 mo., 1648." Thomas 
Battelle was admitted five years later.
