Capt. Henry Batte, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Capt. Henry Batte might describe his life as follows.

I was born at the family estate, “Oakwell Hall,” about 1642 and was 4 when I crossed the Atlantic with my parents, Capt. John Batte and Martha Mallory.
At age 26, I and my younger brother Thomas acquired 5,878 acres in present-day Prince George County and I eventually went on to obtain other plantations.
My wife, Mary Lound, and I were the parents of 7 children. Her father was Henry Lound whose plantation was south of the James in present-day Chesterfield County.
I was a member of the House of Burgesses in 1685-86, 1691-92, and 1695,  and according to its proceedings, I was “out of the Country” before the opening of the 1695-1696 session. Perhaps I never returned because I was dead by 1 June 1700 when James Thweatt Sr. of Charles City County and Mary Batte of same, widow, conveyed a 153-acre portion of my land to Matthew Sturdivant
In 1704 sons, Henry and William Batte, paid taxes on 790 and 750 acres, respectively, and my orphaned daughters, on 1,200 acres in Prince George County that I left them in my now-lost will.  Mary was dead and the girls all married by 10 September 1720 when their husbands named Ligon, Poythress, Stratton, Jones, and Parham agreed on how to split the 1,200 acres. 

Batte appeared before the Council 20 July 1694 for not pursuing two suits for incestuous marriages and was a juror at the General Court later that same year.  He was also a justice of Charles City County.

Batte land patents
With his brother Thomas Batte, Henry obtained a patent for land in Charles City County 29 April 1668 for the importation of 118 persons into the colony. His property was on the south side of the James River beginning at the head of Charles City Creek and covered 5,878 acres, two rods and 8 poles.  Henry’s parents, who had returned to England, and his brothers and several Mallory’s were a part of this group. A 1673 patent issued to Francis Whittington showed Thomas and Henry sold 900 acres of this patent to Whittington. 
In 1673 Henry Batte with Mr. John Sturdivant patented 3,528 acres in Charles City (later Prince George) County south of the Appomattox River on the second branch of Blackwater River.  On 3 Dec. 1678 Henry and his wife, Mary, sold 200 acres in Charles City (later Prince George) County to Edward Birchett who secured it with a patent in Oct. 1673. 
In 1682 Henry Batte and James Thweatt had a patent for 673 acres in Jordan’s Journey Parish, Charles City County, on the south side of the James River,  303 acres of which they deeded to Robert Birchett in 1693. 
On 20 Oct. 1691 Mr. Henry Batte secured a patent for 700 acres called “High Peake” in Charles City County. William Batte, who held the patent in 1670, had failed to settle the land. We do not know who this William Batte was, though clearly he was a relation. 

Widow Mary
Mary Batte, widow, brought her father’s will to Henrico County court 1 Dec. 1708 and she was living in Prince George County in June 1715 when she and William Ligon agreed to divide a tract called “Neck of Land” in Henrico County that had belonged to her father, Henry Lound In Dec. 1717 Mary Batte charged that James Parham detained a slave, Isabel, worth £30. Yet a jury dismissed the case against Parham.
