The BATEUP Families of Sussex


I have no known Bateup ancestors, so why you may ask have I included some of them in my web site?

In February 2009, Ray Bateup contacted me to enquire if I knew of any surviving photographs of Sarah Ann Bateup (1837-1913) who had married Philip Scutt (1831-1917) in 1856 in Bolney, Sussex - I didn't.  At that point Philip and Sarah Ann were just a one liner on Philip's parents web page and my connection to Philip was very convoluted.  Two of his elder brothers had married nieces of my 3x Great Grandmother, Elizabeth Mansbridge.  I had no known connection to Sarah Ann.

Anyway, Ray's email got me wondering about Philip and Sarah Ann, so I typed up a page for them.  I was then curious to know if there were any more convoluted links, so I typed up a page for Sarah Ann's parents, John Baytup (c1808-1878) and Emma Rowland (1815-?), and then John's probable parents John Baytup (1782-1858) and Sarah Stoffel (1785-1872) and then his parents John Baytup (c1753-1837) and Mary Clark (1761-1830).

Sarah Ann's known ancestors were from Bolney, Cowfold and West Grinstead.  Previously I was aware of some Baitups in the Wadhurst area and had assumed the Bolney and Wadhurst families were completely separate.  However, the Sussex Poor Law Database notes that in 1717 a Thomas Batropp, a carpenter, was removed from West Grinstead to Wadhurst, or vice versa, so maybe all Sussex Bateups (and variants, and there are many) were related.  In 1718, Thomas Baytop together with his wife Catherine and son Edward were granted a settlement certificate by Wadhurst overseers to settle in West Grinstead.
