This may be nothing. A Thomas Batte had a daughter named Sarah Batte. She married John Evans Jr. in Henrico County, Virginia in 1698. They lived in Prince George County, Virginia. Part of Prince George County became Amelia County. At least one of their children lived in Amelia County in the 1770's. A genealogy magazine named "The Virginia Genealogist" has a very good article on the Batte family. I think it was in volume 20. It has been a long time since I found it.
