I am Michael Bates son of the late WIllam Bates of Cheyenne Wyoming. I am interested in my ancestory as well. I was told before my father passed that our name came over in the 1600's to Jamestown. I would be interested on anything about this. My fathers family moved to Polk County Arkansas and was supposdly the first to live there.

Nicole Luk Bates
my name Nicole Luk Bates from Hongkong, no british origin, 100% hongkies
There is another angle on our family name; the Atrebates were a Celtic tribe from the southern/midland (mainly from what is now Hampshire) part of Britain pre/post Roman era, and Gaul, Northern France. It may explain the ginger hair streak...!
The Irish still have a derogatory meaning for a 'Bate'....:-P
My own family originated from the Warwickshire area, research shows they worked on the canals. Though there is a story that one ancestor went to America to work on the railroads, and came back with a squaw. It might explain why my Dad looks like a Sioux chief out of a western movie.

Another Bates here :-) from Wales UK Just starting to discover my ancestors and family history
I'm from Sunderland, North East England.
Bhatia and Bhatts occur in India and Pakistan, originating in Kutch Sikh and Rajput - Punjab. Genetically, the English and North East India, predominantly the Meghalaya. Our records show a possible link to the Gir group from Gujarat. Migrant routes include Singapore to Central America to Texas and California.
I'm Corliss Bates from Baltimore, MD. I'm an African American male. My father doesn't know his father so I really don't know the history. The oldest family member I have is my great grandmother who is 82. She lives in Brookneal, VA.
I am from Baltimore MD, I am mixed with African American and Caucasian. My last name Bates comes from my Caucasian side of the family, so I guess I have a pretty much direct tie to the Bates name. I just wanted to learn a little bit more about the name and my ancestry. If any one could help out, it would be well appreciated. Thank you.

Karin Anderson. My mothers maiden name was Bates.
My mother's father,was Talbert Bates. born in Chicago in 1898. His father Was Thomas Bates, born in Illinois in 1876. His father was Charles Bates, born in Tennessee in 1856. His father was Joseph bates, born in either Ohio or Indiana in 1814. Can't seem to get any farther back. The census records that far back are not helpful. Pretty sure the family came from England though.
Ardie Schmitz. My mothers maiden was Bates.
My grandfather was William H Bates who was born in 1879, and lived in Paynesville, Minnesota. I think he died in 1938.

My maternal gradmother was a Bates in Aroostook County Maine. I'm more interested in how much American Indian blood ran through her veins, as well as with my paternal grandmother who was a Stewart. They were embarassed to admit their Indian DNA of the micmac indian tribe.
Looking for any info on my great-grandmother, Katherine/Catherine/Katie Bates. All we know is that she was born March 5, 1882 and was in an orphanage on Staten Island, New York. She eventually married in 1910 in Montreal Canada and her marriage entry shows father as Henry Bates and mother as Ann Murphy, both deceased. Henry's name is hard to decipher on the Ancestry record but I'm pretty sure it is Henry. Does anyone know of any Bates and or an Ann Murphy in the United States where their daughter ended up in a New York Orphanage? Would have been any time between 1882 and 1900 thereabouts. It's also possible they were new immigrants to the U.S.. Would be nice to go further back into the family.
My mother's made name was bates born Loughton Buckinghamshire uk
