Family History Research
On this page you will find a family tree with a single photograph below.

If you would like photos of your own Catchlove ancestors to be published on this website
(not living family members for reasons of privacy) please email them to
enquiries@catchlove-research.org with a clear indication of where they fit in the trees.

Alternatively, if you have a photo of a Catchlove ancestor and you don’t know who it is, I’d be happy to publish it in the hope that someone else will recognise them.

Mary KELL tells us that after the death of his first wife, John married Mary BATMAN in her home parish of Houghton, about a day’s journey from Stoughton by horse or foot.

After the births of Sarah and Mary the family moved back to John’s home parish, Stoughton, where James, Ruth, Emma, John & Jane were born.
The details of Edward’s parents - which gives us the link to Family 5 -  shown here in brown were researched by Mary KELL, a direct descendant of George CATCHLOVE & Margaret LEYLAND who emigrated to Australia in 1884/85.  Mary points out a number of other sources to support these relationships:
(1) records show that John CATCHLOVE was a widower when he married Mary BATMAN.
(2) a Thomas BATMAN worked as a junior smith in Edward’s forge (presumably a relation of Mary BATMAN).
(3) The Duke family graves are next to those of Edward & Mary in the graveyard at St. Nicholas, Houghton.
(4) When Edward & Mary’s son Edward (bap.1829) gave up the smithy it was taken over by another Mary DUKE.
If anyone wishes to contact Mary, please email me at enquiries@catchlove-research.org
and I will pass a message on to her.
Thank you for sharing your research, Mary - this is a really important link.

What happened to make John lose his position and end up in shared accommodation and eventually
resort to labouring?
