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

An infantry captain, I sided with King Charles during the English civil war. In the summer of 1643 the Marquis of Newcastle led our army against Lord Fairfax and his son, Sir Thomas. Although Newcastle had no military expertise, we overwhelmed the Fairfaxes at the Battle of Adwalton Moor 30 June 1643 within a mile of my home, “Oakwell Hall.”
In August 1644, after Cromwell prevailed, I prudently surrendered to Lord Fairfax and was ordered to pay £3,640 to recover my lands. Although Parliament later reduced that to £364, I was angry that I had to sell assets and lease others to pay the fine.
I married Martha Mallory, of a prominent Cavalier family. Some say I spent too much of my family’s wealth elevating myself to the Mallory’s level. Martha and I had 9 children whose baptisms are in the register of Birstall Parish where we attended church.
In June 1646 I left for Virginia with most of my family, leaving behind John, a law student at Cambridge, to complete his studies. Back in London in 1649 and needing money, I organized a commercial trading “adventure” to Virginia. My brother Robert Batte, a London grocer, petitioned the “Committee for advances of money cases,” I persuaded Sir Thomas Danby to invest £1,500, and I borrowed £1,500.
I was “dead beyond the seas” by September 1653 when William Batte, my eldest son and heir, applied to administer my estate. Martha died and was buried 9 February 1654/5 at Birstall, Yorkshire. Dabney, who wanted his money back, had William arrested but could not prove he benefitted from my “adventure.”
Among my big family were a dozen congressmen—both USA and CSA—and about 40 state legislators.

Dead beyond the seas
In Sept. 1653 his brother Robert Batte applied for administration of John Batte’s estate because he was “beyond the seas deced.” Submitted simultaneously was a document intended to shield William Batte from any claims. Danby’s heirs had engaged Philip Mallory to pursue their interests in the Colony. On 21 Sept. 1653 Mallory signed an affidavit that he had received what he could of the estate of John Batte in the Colony of Virginia and “therefore to the utmost of my power discharge, release, acquit William Batte, son and heir of Gent. John Batte of all debts, dues, accounts or whatever that may be claimed by Sir Thomas Danby Kt.”
John’s estates, including “Oakwell Hall,” fell to William. When he returned to claim his inheritance, Sir Danby had him arrested but could not connect him with the lost investments. William successfully argued that he was neither a planter nor trader and was in no way in involved with his father and brother in the “adventure” that lost Danby’s money.

Other individuals named Batte
Early Virginia land patent records mention several individuals named John Batte, Batt, Batts, etc. A John Batte was in Isle of Wight County as early as 1623 when Capt. John Batte was but 17 years of age.
My John Batte may have been the John Batts who, with John Davis, obtained a patent for 300 acres at the head of Charles City Creek 2 April 1639.  This patent was renewed in the name of John Davis for 450 acres and Stephen Gill for 300 acres suggesting that John may have returned to England. 
On 7 Nov. 1643 John Batt obtained a patent for 526 acres in James City County lying at the head of the Eastermont Branch of Back River. Among his headrights was Dorothy Batte.  Since Capt. John Batte was then embroiled in the English Civil War, this was likely another of the name.
In 1654 John Phillips and John Batts secured a patent for 500 acres in Lancaster County.  When they did not settle the land, William Drewe received a patent for it in 1657.
