Brentnall family

Jeanette Brentnall commented (Feb 11th 2013)….

Do you know anything of the Bateman family? My ggggfather Hiram married Elizabeth, and I can’t find anything much about her.

More on the Brentnalls to come, especially at the Anchor Inn.
Can’t help with Elizabeth Ann Bateman at the moment but I believe Hiram ended up in Australia.

Jeanette replied (Sep 2nd 32013)…

Hiram did indeed end up in Australia, with my 4x grandmother, and the family has been here since 1856. Fortunately he kept a diary, a transcription of which can be read at, as is The Egyptian Diary of Elijah Brentnall, if there are any other Brentnalls interested.
