This is another BATEMAN family group, this time from the other side of the world. The family connection is that the large gentleman, second from the right is the son of Henry and Dorothy Isabella BATEMAN from yesterday’s photo.
Sadly I don’t really know much about at this part of the BATEMAN family at this stage. Hopefully one day I will have the time and money to get down to some serious research into this lot.
What I do know is that William Henry Joseph BATEMAN (second from the right) my 2x great uncle, married Annie Clark MCCONACHY (second from the left) in Geelong, Victoria, Australia on the 22nd April 1905. He was serving with the Royal Navy and appears to have remained in Australia when his service came to an end.
As far as I can tell they had two children, Dorothy (in the middle) and William (on the far right). Written on the back of the photo is Dorries wedding Dec 1934, but I haven’t got around to finding out any more. I don’t know who it was she married or if William ever married, but I do know that there were descendants of William and Annie BATEMAN in Australia perhaps 20 or 30 years ago, but I don’t know their names. I don’t know who the gentleman on the left is either, presumably some relation of Annie.
If you do recognise any of these names or faces then do get in touch, it would be great to make contact with this side of the family.
