Hi Trees

I found the baptism in the transcripts at  Yahoo Groups Somerset hundreds - although I do have the Chew Magna fiche for this period. Josias (sometimes Josiah) was a coal miner living in Bishop Sutton. Strangely enough I was in that village the weekend before last & you can't imagine anything more unlikely than a coalfield nearby.

I thought Josias = Joseph when I saw the entry - perhaps he was "Joe" in the family.

Thanks Steve,
I have used the yahoo transcripts now to fill the rest of the family in I've got 2 generations back now with siblings wow I can't believe how easy it was. I had forgotten the yahoo group I had used it for my Paulton family most of their transcripts appear on free reg too but for some unknown reason Ann Perry BATTEN was missing from there.
I don't suppose you took any photos of Bishop Sutton by any chance?
Do you have any baptisms before 1781 for  Chew Magna?

The only photos I took in the village were of the camp site we stayed in  - not very interesting genealogically! I took some of Chew Magna church though, as I have plenty of ancestors from there.

I'm at work at present, but will check how far back the fiche I have goes & let you know tomorrow

Hi Trees

I've checked the fiche I hold & I have baptisms & burials 1686-1812 and marriages 1686-1781. Please let me know what you'd like me to check - I can't at this stage do a complete search for one name, but if you could point me towards specific names and  a general idea of dates I'll do what I can

That is a wonderful offer Steve thank you very much
Please don't spend all your precious time on it though I've been looking for our Ann for 23 years so a little more wait wont be a hardship  ;D
here is the list so far
Marriage of Josias BATTEN and Ann? first Known child 1781
Baptism of BATTEN children of Josias and Ann before 1781 I just have a feeling there should be more than the 7 I have found from 1781
Baptism of Josias BATTEN about 1760
Death of JosiasBatten (born 1788 last child bap in chew Magna 1800
Death of Elizabeth wife of Josias  last child bap in chew Magna 1800

Any of the above would be wonderful

Many thanks Martin and welcome to Roots Chat hope you enjoy it here
When you say you have found some one of the same name do you mean Ann Batten?
I am happy with the Ann we found in Bishops Sutton which was much nearer the area of her marriage and martial home But if you have found an Ann of the right age in Sutton that will need looking at
