The Bateson Family Tree

The Bateson family probably originated in Windhill, a village near the confluence of the River Aire and Bradford Beck in Calverley Parish in West Yorkshire.

The earliest documented reference is to Joseph Bateson, an innovative woollen manufacturer born around 1768.
Some of his descendants dispersed to America, to Australia and to Canada but little is known of these branches.
One individual found work on the Channel coast of southern England and there met a McDougall whose family came from Perthshire.
Others went north to Glasgow and were spliced into stock from the Atholl Stewarts and the Hamiltons of Dumfriesshire.

The life histories of these families over the last 250 years or so are recorded in some detail on these pages.
The links on the left give access to the family trees (PAF files) of each branch. Major branches also contain a Births, Marriages and Deaths database.
There are also transcriptions of wills, testaments, gravestones, Kirk Session records and other documents.
Some historical and geographical background material has also been appended.

There are gaps in each family history as well as likely errors of transcription and conjecture. Assistance with any of these would be greatly appreciated.

The authors would be pleased to receive an acknowledgement from any who find these pages useful.
