    Batmisson surname

    Hi, does anyone know what nationality this surname is?

    I have it in my family tree (we are mostly English) but I canít help but wonder what its origins are. It doesnít sound English to me, but I could be wrong.

    Hmm, seems like an uncommon surname. Could it be of French or Scandinavian origin originally? I find no entries on the Forbears website, Ancestry Surname Meaning Maps or others. I see maybe some mentions on Rootsweb and older posts with a focus on North Yorkshire.

    I had some small Scandinavian (2%) pop up on a DNA test, but I dismissed it as an old sample. Iím really confused. I think itís the Ď-ssoní at the end that makes me think of Scandinavian languages. Particularly Danish. My first thought was a Scandinavian country, and I dont have any documented French ancestry. Not really sure. I could be wrong. Iíve never seen this surname in recent times so I wonder if itís faded out. My ancestor is in the 1800s.

    Yeah it's an uncommon surname, it also seems to have been present in Lancashire. I suspect it has faded out, perhaps male-line descendants of your Batmisson family had changed their name to something a little more common?

    I wish I could use some google-fu and find more entries outside of rootsweb and random youtube videos about Batman...

    Iím seeing a lot of people from Durham and Yorkshire popping up. Iím guessing itís possibly Scandinavian in origin since itís NE England. But I donít know at all.
