Catherine I know was born 1864 in Angle

No she wasn't I'm afraid she was born in 1862


  :-[ I am sorry about this - I was working with data provided by a family member and clearly they were wrong! Sorry!

I would still like to take you up on your kind offer of looking up the PR's for both Catherine Batson and John Scourfield.

Many thanks to your Orielbenfro.  :)

I have to apologise that because I failed to read simple information in a straight line across a page, I got the wrong dates for Catherine, thankfully I double checked whilst at the Record Office today and found the following ;

Rhoscrowther Baptism Register
Born in Dec 1863 Baptised 01 Dec 1864 Catherine dau of Elizabeth Batson of Carthouse Green Angle a farmers daughter baptised

Angle Baptism Register
16 Sept 1831 Elizabeth Mary to John & Sarah Batson of Carthouse Green a Farmer (Pvte Baptism)
26 May 1833 Sarah to John & Sarah Batson of Carthouse Green a Farmer (Pvte Baptism)
21 Nov 1834 Mary to John & Sarah Batson of Carthouse Green a Farmer (Pvte Baptism)

I have a jpeg of the mrge entry of John & Sarah at Angle, drop me an email address by P.M. and I will forward it to you.

Once again my apologies for my error.

No I did mean Jane Batson, she is either a daughter or if you are very lucky old enough to be John's mother ~ we live in hope.
Likewise I'm pretty sure that Anne Batson buried at Pwllcrochan could well be John's wife and John's mother (if you follow me ??)
Have a nice holiday, living in Pembroke one is not in need of such events as one is on almost permanent holiday.

Hello welshbear,
I hope that you are still interested in the Batson family of Bluewell, Pwllcrochan.  Catherine was the first of three daughters born to John and Sarah Batson.  I am a descendent of her sister Sarah Ann who married Mark Roch and farmed Penyholt Farm Castlemartin.  Sarah Anne was a formidable woman, having about eleven children and, as a widow, farming over 300 acres.  She is my great grandmother and I have photos of her.  I am engaged in researching her father  John who may have been a child prodigy:  I possess his school mathematic books written in the most immaculate copperplate  handwriting - although he was only aged 14 (1804) at the time.  Sarah Anne is buried in Castlemartin cemetery.
Please get in touch - I live in Pembroke Dock,    RIJ

Catherine BATSON was the daughter of Elizabeth BATSON  b1831 and recorded in the 1881 census of Pembroke Union Workhouse as unmarried, aged 50, a pauper, domestic servant, birthplace Angle Pembrokeshire.  Her sisters were Sarah Anne b1833 and Mary b1834.

Elizabeth BATSON (Elizabeth Mary) was the daughter of John BATSON (1790-1864) (buried Pwllcrochan) and Sarah nee THOMAS (1798-1859).

John BATSON's parents were Peter BATSON (?-1810) and Anne GRIFFITHS (1798-1859).  They were married at Pwllcrochan in 1781.   She was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth GRIFFITHS.

Peter BATSON was 'of Bullwell' and there remains today Bullwell Bay within the jetty of the Rhoscrowther oil refinery.  Old maps show that there was a ferry from Bullwell due north across Milford Haven to Milford.  In the old days it might be easier to get to Milford Haven than Pembroke.

This might explain why some Batsons could be found north of the haven - such as Jane BATSON who ran a boarding and day school in Short Row, Haverfordwest in 1830.

Some info on Catherine Batson ( my great great grandmother)...

Her mother Elizabeth was brought up by her parents at Carthouse green in Angle (they were originally from Rhoscrowther) until they died and Elizabeth went into service at Stackpole Court for Lord Cawdor where she fell pregnant with Catherine (my grandmother says Lord Cawdor himself did the deed). As she was unmarried Elizabeth went to the poorhouse in Pembroke and Catherine was raised at Corside Farm. When she was 16 Catherine was sent to Pembroke fair where she was hired by John Scourfield to work for him at his farm in West Williamston, Carew. John and Catherine ended up marrying.
