Peter & Ann Bateman

Part of the famous Bateman family. Hester Bateman’s sons, Peter Bateman and John Bateman, registered their mark in 1790. This partnership was of short duration as Jonathan, who married Ann Downlinff, died in 1791.

In 1791, the mark was changed to Peter and Ann Bateman. Ann was Jonathan’s widow and not Peter’s wife (he married Alice Beavoir) or Hester’s daughter (Ann Bateman married Richard Cottrill).

In 1800, the mark of Peter Bateman, Ann Bateman and William (I) Bateman was registered. William Bateman was the son of Jonathan and Ann Bateman, who, in 1800, entered in partnership with his uncle Peter and his mother Ann.

In 1805, after the retirement of Ann, was registered the new mark of Peter Bateman and William (I) Bateman.
