It has been a long time since I first posted this but this is what I think the case is
Ann BATTEN was born Sutton about 1811 from censuses
Ann's marriage was witnessed in 1830 in Paulton by a George BATTEN
Ann and her husband George Amos witnessed the marriage of an Elizabeth Batten in Paulton Dec 1837 Elizabeth's father was Joseph a labourer

A George BATTEN has been found baptised in Chew Magna in 1816 son of John and Ann abode B Sutton he has been found in Bishop Sutton on the 1841 and 1851 censuses still in Bishop Sutton

So it would point towards Bishop Sutton for Ann's birth but she does not appear in Free Reg can anyone check the Chew Magna register for me please
It would be good to see how Ann George and Elizabeth relate but WONDERFUL to find Ann's parents as she is direct line and has been hidden for so long

Trees :) with fingers crossed that someone can help.

Hi Trees

There is a baptism at Chew Magna :

Ann Perry Batten, d of Josias & Elizabeth Batten, 31 Dec 1809

Could this be the one?

Update thanks to Steve's wonderful work
HOORAY I THINK I HAVE FOUND THEM
Josias & Ann BATTEN had 6 children baptised between 1783 and 1800 in Chew Magna The second child was Josias born 1788 he married Elizabeth Perry 10 Apr 1806 Chew Magna they had 8 children baptised in Chew Magna but living in Bishop Sutton
The first was George 1807 he witnessed Ann's wedding
next was Ann Perry 1809 she married George Amos and they witnessed Elizabeth and Elijah Chiver's marriage
The fifth child was Betty which is a pet name for Elizabeth she was baptised 16 Jun 1817 so she looks like  Elizabeth who married Elija Chivers
Your thoughts please do you think this is the family
 A very happy
