hello Batesies,I am Yorkshire born UK, I know nothing of my family history as my Grandfather died when I was 8 and not much contact with my paternal father.. But I do know they originated in Halifax West Yorkshire.. Feel free to contact me :- email@example.com
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.
alain living in france but family was from Mamble in Shropshire near Cleobury Mortimer in UK. firstname.lastname@example.org

I forgot to mention my email address is email@example.com just in case any of you have family originating in Hartlepool or know anything about the Bates from Hartlepool.
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.
