This notable and long-established surname is of Old French origin, and is a status name for a young knight or novice at arms, deriving from the Old French "bacheler", from the Medieval Latin "baccalarius". The name was introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, and was adopted into Middle English.
