Batt Family
« on: Thursday 20 October 05 16:21 BST (UK) »
Would be very grateful if anyone can give me a link to Benjamin Elliot Batt. Possibly born in the 1700's but am more interested in the children he had. His third daughter Mary Ann Batt was born in 1799 Kings County.
A newspaper clipping of her marriage to John Culcheth, Solicitor in 1833 Edge Hill, Liverpool states that the late Benjamin Elliot Batt was a Gentleman from Kings County.
Thanks

Hello j-allen,

The Eighteenth Century Sources listed below should assist you.

Books of Survey and Distributions c. 1700
Catholic Qualification Rolls 1778 - 1793
Convert Rolls 1704-1839
Electors Rolls 1761
Estate Records and Marriage Licence Bonds
Flax Growers List 1796
Freeholders entitled to vote 1770
Grand Jurors and Books of Presentiments
Militia Lists 1761
Oath of Allegiance 1775
Poll Books 1752
Proprietors of land circa 1700 list
Protestant Householders 1740 list.
Register of Freeholders 1758
Return of Householders 1766
State prisoners 1798
Voters Lists 1727-1793

There are three items you require when searching for Irish ancestors.

1. Denomination.
2. Parish.
3. Townland.

You'll have to rely on Church records as Mary Ann was born before Civil Registration was introduced in Ireland. Non Catholic marriages were registered from 1845 onwards. When registration for BDMS started in 1864 some people didn't bother with the registration for a few years after that date. Keep your fingers crossed that church records still exist.
