The name is taken from Bateman Road which was itself named after the Bateman family. The name of "Bateman" is that of a well known Perth merchant firm. The company began business in 1857, but the family arrived in the colony on the "Medina" in 1830. John Bateman built a store in Fremantle dealing in merchandise of many kinds and became postmaster at Fremantle in 1833. He also took part in the establishment of a whaling business at Fremantle and after his death in 1855, his sons took over the family business and formed a company in 1857.
