Ann Batten living in Co durham 1881 census, Widow has 2 sons William Batten and John thomas Batten all born in cornwall now living in Durham No records of this family in cornwall for 1871. There is a matching family same birth years and place of birth but shown as family name Hobbs living in St Germans union workhouse in 1871.
Ann Hobbs is listed as a Widow on the 1871 census.Richard Batten is the fathers name on the marriage certificate for William,there is no marriage record for Ann or Richard.Can any one suggest a way of proving if this is the
same family
Thanks Eric
