Thank you for your trouble, Tantan.  I fully understand that not everyone is as interested in family history as Rootschatters!

I've just received my Bathe ggrandparents' marriage certificate which proves my findings so far and takes me back a generation.  I'm about to go away on a fortnight's holiday but on return I shall review the Wroughton BMD fiches and see if I can progress from there.

Thanks again.

Hello Pips

I suspect that this is a branch of the Bathe family but I have not linked the Baths with the Bathes as yet.  There were huge numbers of the Bath/Bathes in Wiltshire going back to the 1600s and even further back.

Hi, it looks in 1851 as if William Bathe was living in Swindon with his sister Martha and her husband

HO107/1833/f422/033, Swindon, High Street

John Leighfield, h, m, 29, coachman, WIL Lydiard
Martha Leighfield, w, m, 24, WIL Elcombe
Robert Lieghfield, s, 5, WIL Elcombe
George Leighfield, s, 3, WIL Wroughton
Mark Leighfield, s, 10m, WIL Wroughton
William Bathe, BL, u, 17, ag lab, WIL Elcombe

I take it you have Joseph Bathe in 1851 in Elcombe.   Also in Elcombe in 1851 is James Bathe age 58.

Elcombe is a hamlet about 2 miles west of Wroughton which is about 2.5 miles south of Swindon.

Happy New Year, Dave

Thank you Davierj for your message and apologies for the delay in responding.  I have been away over Christmas and New Year with my son and his family.

I had found William Bathe on the 1851 census and have followed him right through to, and including, the 1901 census.  Once I get all the laundry and household chores done I'm back on to ancestor chasing.

Happy New Year.

Hi IMT
   I am still interested in your Bathe family also, because of their connection with Basset Down (see above). John Leighfield and his family identified by Dave on 30th Dec was married to Martha Bathe in Sep Q 1845 and he was the Coachman for the Story Maskelyne family who lived at Basset Down house for many years. He is referred to a few times in the book about Basset Down by Mary Arnold-Forster (a descendant of the Story Maskelynes). Martha Leighfield died aged 41 in Jun Q 1867 and John Leighfield married again. Hope this is of some interest.
Regards
Tantan

Hi imt.
              If you are like myself you will be recording anything to do with your own family name [ BATHE in your case ] on the assumption that one day , what is currently uninteresting, may help to prove a family link. If you are then here is a bit more.
COLESHILL, Berks. ( walking distance from Wroughton)
Marriage.  8 June 1811, William Titchener & Hannah Bathe. botp.
