I know the process of Hat making wasn't pleasant and they used Mercury in the process which affected their brains ... Hence Mad as a Hatter. 

Had a look at the Bitton Family website to see if there are any burials listed etc., but no records there.

Harriet SHORT's marriage in 1871 - doesn't say Stephen SHORT, (deceased)

Just starting to look at this, as my husband's maternal line (OSBORNE)  are from Bitton.

Samuel OSBORNE (Blacksmith)  and his wife Mary (nee SHORT) - first child christened at Bitton - 20 October 1822 -

We think Samuel OSBORNE married Mary SHARP* at St Paul's Bristol - 22 December 1816 - they both sign their name with an X  -  so couldn't read or write .....  One of their daughter's christened at Bitton 28  December 1828 - is named Mary Short OSBORNE.

Although it says SHARP most family researchers seem to think this should be SHORT.

The family live in Bristol St George 1841 onwards but the children are christened at Bitton.

This weekend, Ancestry have a 'free weekend'

Have just called up

England & Wales, Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills - 1384-1858

Name: Edwardi BATTEN (Edward Batten)
residence: Bristol
Probate Date: 16 November 1638
Death Year: abt 1638.

Just have a look, doesn't appear to be in Latin - but needs enlarging on screen to read it.

He talks about his Wife : Mary, + grandchildren.

There is also the

Will of Mary BATTEN, Widow of Edward BATTEN of Temple Parish, bristol: May 1644  Listed on the National Archives, (Prerogative Court of Canterbury) - so far can't call that up on Ancestry.
