BATHE family = confusion!
« on: Tuesday 03 July 07 09:29 BST (UK) »
Dear Rootschatters

Is anyone out there researching the BATHE family from Wroughton/Elcombe?  If so I would love to hear from them.

My grandmother was Martha Bathe b Wroughton 1870 d Westbury on Trym, Bristol in 1930.  I believe her father to have been William b Elcombe 1834 and her mother Sarah BATHE (possibly a cousin or maybe the widow of A N Other Bathe) b Wroughton 1836.

As with many families at this time, christian names were repeated through the generations and the relatives all lived in close proximity, making it very difficult to untangle the various families.

I would be happy to share the information I have.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi

Not sure if this will connect to your family , but I have a Caroline Bath who married Thomas Skuse in Compton Greenfield in 1841 giving her address as Henbury. Henbury is next to Westbury on Trym. Her father was named as William on the marriage cert.

This is much earlier than the details you gave and I dont have much more info on the Bath line so not sure if it is the same family.

Hello Nashua

Thanks for your reply.  I haven't come across a Caroline Bath(e) in my searches as yet.  It's possible there may be a link but as you say 1841 is early for any of my Bathes to have moved to the Bristol area.  My researches so far show my grandmother to be the first of the line to have moved away from Wiltshire into Bristol.  But who knows, I'm quite prepared to be proved wrong!

Do you have a dob for Caroline from the marriage cert and I'll see if I can find her in Wilts as I have fiches for some bmds there?  Meanwhile I'll keep your info in the "pending" file.

Thanks again.

Hi IMT

My Caroline was married 03 October 1841 aged 19. although the age varies a couple of years each way  in subsequent census records. The only other clue is the witnesses to the wedding were Mary Bath & Jane Dinnen?
 She was a servant on the marriage cert. Her husband Thomas was born Charlton Wilts, but her birth place on the census is shown as various places in Glos.

Not sure if this will help?

Hi Nashua

Every little clue helps.  The Wilts connection is interesting.  If I'm confined indoors by the weather tomorrow, I shall be on the case.

Thanks again.

Hi IMT,

Thanks for the offer to check. If you need anything checked at Bristol Record Office let me know. I am hoping to go there on Thursday.

Hi Nashua

I've looked on the fiches I have but have found no trace of a baptism for a Caroline Bath or Bathe born abt 1822.  I've tried unsuccessfully on FreeReg, IGI and Ancestry for you too.

Happy hunting at Bristol RO.  I shall be visiting there in August so won't trouble you with searches for me.

Best wishes.

Hi IMT

Thanks for searching for me. I will keep your details on file in case the families eventually link.

Good luck

Hi IMT
   I've just read your message about the Bathe family from Elcombe. I used to live there as a lad and went to school with a Patsy Bathe and the Bathe family from Elcombe featured in the history of our hamlet Basset Down which was about 3 miles west of Wroughton, just beyond Elcombe. I'll dig out some more info if you are still interested.
Regards
