Hi Emma,
Yes Jennie apparently changed her name to Joan. George would be my Great Great Uncle & so his daughter Jennie would be my Great great cousin??...all very confusing. I hadn't heard the tale of George having a mistress I always thought she was the daughter of George & his wife.
It will be good to meet & it's nice to know I have some more American family. Let me know what days you are free as I can at the moment make it any day. Let's meet up soon as there is so much to show you & you will be able to go back to the States & tell everyone all that you've learnt...this is so exciting. There are many more family members for you to meet.
So message me your e-mail address & then I can give you my phone number etc. It's too public on here to give out such information.  I have photos & all sorts to show you. We can meet up for coffee if you like.

Hi Emily,
I received your message today & cannot believe that I have found another link. My name is Helen & I am the granddaughter of Millicent E. Parker (Batterham after she married). Millicent's mother was Florence & Florence was the sister of George W. Coxhill. There were several children in the family...John Witham Buttery, Frances (Fanny), Florence, George, Jane & Beatrice. John married & had children he was the result of his mothers first marriage, his mother being Emma Ashton who married William Buttery. She then married for a second time & had Frances who married late, had no kids & lived for a while in the Isle of Wight. Then there was Florence my great grandmother who married & had 2 children Millicent (my nannan) & Raymond who died aged 21. George married, had kids & went to the USA. Jane never married as far as I know & lived for a while & I think died in London. Beatrice died as an infant. The story surrounding George is intriguing as he married Annie from Leeds & they had 3 kids, Beatrice, Jennie & William. According to family & the census it seems that only William & Beatrice went to the States with their parents. Jennie did not go which I find hard to understand because as a mother I cannot imagine taking only 2 of my 3 children with me to live abroad, but apparently this is what happened. Jennie lived with Frances (Fanny) & Jane for a while in Sheffield. They all went to London where Jane worked as a Hotel receptionist & Jennie went to a girls catholic school. However, none of this side of our family was catholic as far as I know. Anyway Frances (Fanny) married & I think Jennie must have stayed with Jane. Jennie married & had children. I am in contact with her descendants & have a lot of info. We have connections with the suffragettes but unsure if this includes Jane or Jennie. Please feel free to message me with any other info. or if you have any questions. This is so weird because the family are from Sheffield, some emigrated to the States, some have come back & have settled in or around Sheffield. You live in High Peak where I went to College years ago & I used to live in Derbyshire, but was born in Sheffield. I attended Sheffield University & live in Sheffield now & you work at Sheffield University...who'd of guessed it. Oh & I used to live in the States!!! If you like we could meet up as I have major amounts of info, family tree, photos etc. as I have been researching this for over 21 years.

  From what I understand all the Batterhams are somehow connected. However, it is a very large family. I do not have the exact Batterhams of the exact dates you have. Although I have a Joseph Batterham born in the late 1700's. Your branch of the family could be linked to a son or brother of  one of my Batterhams, even though I have many siblings listed there might be a few missing.
  I have Joseph Batterham born mid 1700's and one in the late 1700's. I have an Eleanor Coe who was married to a Joseph Batterham. I have no siblings for this particular Joseph though. However I have children for a Joseph Batterham...Nathaniel 1807, Mary 1809, Clement Sutterby 1814, Joseph 1816, William 1818, Elizabeth 1820, George 1822 my great, great, great grandfather. Also Robert 1824, Elizabeth 1828 and Henry 1831.
  Maybe these names ring a bell. Let me know and thank you for replying to my post.
