Bateman, two miles south of Red Rock in southern Bastrop County, was established in the early 1880s and named for one of the original settlers. With the coming of the railroad a few years later, the community became a shipping point, and in 1900 a post office was established with William S. Friar, Jr., as postmaster. At the end of 1904 the post office closed. In the 1930s Bateman had two businesses, a population of fifty, and a two-room school. The population estimate remained at fifty through 1948. Bateman was still listed as a community in 1990, but without population figures.
