Hi,

Have you looked for Flora on an early census?  Perhaps she was born there or had lived there?

Good thinking, but no, she isn't on any Sedgehill census

Hi,

This could be them in 1881:

Arthur England (24 b Grimstead, Wiltshire),  wife Thursa (23 b Stoke Winterbourne, Wiltshire) and daughter
Flora (b 1880 Gussage, Dorset).  Arthur is a Police Constable and the family is living at Police Station, Eling, Hampshire.

In 1901 the family are in Somerset;  Arthur is now a carpenter, Flora is absent but there are 4 children with Queensland show as birthplace then 2 younger ones born in Wiltshire.

Hello, welcome to Rootschat

Looking at Freebmd it looks as if there were 2 children born to the marriage between George and  Flora Ellen Smith. Remember that her maiden name was England, so that would show as the mother's name.

George R Batson born September quarter 1911 registered Droxford Hampshire.

Norah H Batson born September quarter 1914 registered Mere Wiltshire.

The step daughter was Violet Flora May Smith who was born Sept quarter 1907 registered Sherbourne.

That's interesting Groom that you have found the children of George & Flora Batson.  I knew about the step-daughter, but not about the other two, George and Norah.  Note Norah's birth in 1914 in the Mere Registration District - which includes the parish of Sedgehill.  So it looks as though George & Flora were there in 1914 at least.  Good hunting!

Hi LC

It looks as if you have a living descendent of George as well through leighhayward.
