Edward and Frances Bateup
« on: Saturday 06 November 21 12:46 GMT (UK) »
I have both Edward and Frances Bateup in my family tree.
Edward Bateup married Jane Cobby 21.5.1744 at West Grinstead and Frances Bateup married Thomas Feist 28.12.1747 also at West Grinstead.
I have tried various spellings (Batup, Baytop, Batchup, Baittup) but have been unable to find a baptism for either and wondered if anyone had come across this family?

I found baptism for Jane Cobby (Parham) and Thomas Fist (Cowfold) but the Bateups are eluding me.

Edward & Jane's children were baptised at West Grinstead but Frances and Thomas Feist's children were baptised at West Firle.

Not sure if this is relevant but there were 2 other Bateup marriages at W Grinstead; Elizabeth married Edmund Cobby (brother of Jane) in 1747 and Mary married Thomas Lepherd in 1751

On Ancestry I have found another FT which suggests Edward Batchup is the son of Thomas Baytop (born 1690 at Wadhurst) and wife Catherine but no facts attached though 'my' Edward Bateup named his eldest daughter Katherine and Mary & Thomas Lepherd also had a daughter Katherine which seems to tie in.
Any help or hints much appreciated

I note the marriages you mention, on freereg, at West Grinstead: St George : Parish Register, there are also a few burials before 1840.

I could not find any baptisms on freereg or family search. It might be worth a look at the information on the church below and subsequently West Sussex Records Office.

Hi,

If you search West Sussex Record Office Catalogue for Bateup one of the references if for a settlement
Examination of a John Bateup in 1783.

This is connection, however their web site appears to be updating so perhaps try later

http://185.121.204.173/SearchOnline/Record.aspx?src=CalmView.Catalog&id=Par59%2f32%2f4%2f1%2f12&pos=3.

This examination appears on family search - thought this may save you some time and money.

His Father is Thomas Bateup, John has been working for Edmund Cobby.

Thank you for your input.
Having read up on West Grinstead, I am now wondering if the Bateups were Catholic.

On another thread on here I found reference to the [/b]Margaret Higgins database of Catholics in England [/b]and on there is listed for 1727, a Tho Bateops (Batrops) of West Grinstead.

So, I think my next step  will be to access [/b]the West Grinstead Catholic Mission Registers 1705-1855[/b] which requires a visit to the WSRO
