Board Name: England
BATTEN UK, Somerset, Devon, Middlesex, London Jan 11, 2003
I have a William BATTEN b? possibly Somerset and d circa 1837, marrying an Elizabeth Coseus or a Betty Cosens on 12.12.1797 in Whitestaunton Somerset UK.

As far as I know they had 7 children
John BATTEN b1798
Mary BATTEN b10th May 1800 or October 5th 1800
William BATTEN b3rd Feb 1804 or March 2nd 1804
Grace BATTEN b 7th May 1807 or July 5th 1807 and marrying a George COOK on 26th January 1846
Thomas BATTEN b9th Oct 1808 or Sept 10th 1808
Robert BATTEN b 21st Feb 1813
Bartholomew BATTEN b1814 and marrying a Mary Ann Spark (Sparke or Sparkes) on 31st January 1843

Of all the children I only have info on Bartholomew, the youngest. As far as I know he and wife Mary had 4 children:-
1. Robert BATTEN b 23rd Feb 1844 d 1929 marrying a Lydia CLARKE on 1st August 1874 or on January 8th 1874. Lydia was born 1845 and d 1918. They had 2 children, Florence Lydia BATTEN b 1877 and Alice Maud BATTEN b 1880 d1969.

2. Thomas BATTEN b1847 d? during the 1881 census Thomas was living with his younger brother Frederick Batten and was listed as an unemployed Barman.

3. Frederick BATTEN b17th May 1849 married Jane Eliza MITCHELL on 6th July 1878 or on June 7th 1878. They had 7 children, three of whom died in infancy. There eldest Frederick Bartholomew BATTEN b 1879 went to Australia and I have found his decendants. Their 2nd eldest Louisa Mary BATTEN b1880, her decendants now live in Gravesend and Canada. Their 3rd child Frank BATTEN b1884 we believe served in the British Army during WWI and then immigrated to Australia. I have nothing else on him BUT WOULD LOVE ANYTHING AT ALL ON THIS PERSON. Then their youngest surviving son was Harry BATTEN born 1886,, my grandfather, and I have everything on that line.
When Frederick's first wife Jane Eliza died he remarried a Mary Ann DEUDNEY, sometime after March 1890.

4.James BATTEN I have nothing on. So anything would be very much appreicated.

Areas I have come across in my search are as follows:-
Yarcombe, Devon, Somerset, Chard, Whitestaunton, Mile End Old Town Middlesex.

If anyone thinks they may be able to help in any of the above please email me at bigbirdmel@hotmail.com. Lastly I must apologise for the 2 dates I have used in some cases, I've been using an American programme and it has changed dates around and I know can't find out the exact dates, hence the 2. Sorry.

Kind regards Melanie Bootle
