Edward Batten was born in Berkshire, son of Simon Batten and his wife, Transilla Coxhead. He was baptised at Appleton with Eaton on 7 March 1620.  A second son, it was unlikely that he could find a farm and he took himself to Rochester in Kent and there became a chandler. He evidently did well for on 4 September 1652 he was made a Freeman of the City, gratis the Mayor's Freeman.
He married Sarah Tredwell at St Peter and St Paul at Milton by Gravesend on 13 October 1652.
