Some websites suggest Banjo Patterson's mother, Rose Isabella Barton was related to Sir Edmund Barton, the first Prime Minister of Australia. Does anyone know if and how they were related ?.

Wikipedia page re Banjo Paterson:
see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banjo_Paterson

Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson was born at the property "Narrambla", near Orange, New South Wales, the eldest son of Andrew Bogle Paterson, a Scottish immigrant from Lanarkshire, and Australian-born Rose Isabella Barton, related to the future first Prime Minister of Australia Edmund Barton.
