This is really where the trail starts to go cold. Limited access and privacy restrictions mean that details are thin on the ground, but that doesn’t mean I have given up hope of finding living relations in Australia.
Basically what I have discovered is that all three children of William Joseph Henry and Annie Clark BATEMAN were married, the two sons appear to have remained in the state of Victoria whilst the daughter and her husband moved to New South Wales.
- Reginald Graham BATEMAN married Kathleen Frances HORBY in Victoria in 1933
- Dorothy Marguerite BATEMAN married Leslie Herbert MARSHALL in Victoria in 1934
- William Thomas Henry BATEMAN married Irene Elizabeth MCNAMARA in Victoria in 1940
So far I have only found evidence of one child from these three marriages, but I suspect that it is more to do with availability of records rather than the fact that there weren’t any more.
Dorothy Marguerite and her husband Leslie Herbert MARSHALL had a son named Alan Leslie MARSHALL on the 22nd January 1950. They were living in Crown Street, Sydney, New South Wales at the time and the birth was announced in The Sydney Morning Herald.
