Anne Batchelor was a Christian Science practitioner who lived at 1834 Barclay Street from 1920 to 1939.

She was born on May 2, 1867, in Jacobstow, Cornwall, England. Her father was Frederick Thomas Batchelor (about 1827-1897), who studied at Wadham College, Oxford and became rector at Jacobstow. Anne’s mother was Charlotte Salusbury Trelawney (about 1829-1894).

Anne first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1914. She lived in a series of places in the West End, before moving to 1834 Barclay Street about 1920.

She never married. She lived in Vancouver until her death on April 1, 1963.

One of Anne’s sisters, Charlotte Lewinna Batchelor (1870-1960), married Stanley McNab Henderson, who was at 901 Chilco Street in 1919 and 1920.

Another sister, Elizabeth Letitia Batchelor (born about 1865-possibly died 1933), married Harry Templer Widdicombe, who was at 954  (or 958) Denman Street in 1900.

    • I suppose it depends on whether you are looking for just general information on the name origin, or if you are looking for specific ancestors. You may be a genealogist yourself, but if you aren’t (as I am not), then there may be someone who has already specialized in studying this family.

      The normal method, of course, is to start with what you know (or can reasonably assume) and then work through the connections that turn up (although some of these alleged connections may be questionable or inaccurate in various degrees).

      This page has some information on the origins of the Batchelor surname: http://forebears.io/surnames/batchelor#meaning. However, it won’t tell you how accurate its sources are, or if this specific Batchelor family has any connection to any of the sources.

      For this specific Batchelor family, the father is Frederick Thomas Batchelor, who was a rector at Jacobstow in Cornwall. He was born about 1827. He studied at Wadham College in Oxford.

      According to the Reading Mercury, Oxford Gazette, Newbury Herald and Berks County Paper, (Reading, England), Saturday, December 27, 1851; page 2: Frederick Thomas Batchelor, B.A., Wadham College, Oxford, was admitted into holy orders in 1851.

      This obituary notice refers to Frederick’s wife, Charlotte: The Royal Cornwall Gazette Falmouth Packet, Cornish Weekly News, & General Advertiser (Truro, England), Thursday, June 21, 1894; page 5: “Batchelor– At Jacobstow Rectory, North Cornwall, June 15, Charlotte, wife of the Rev. Frederick Thomas Batchelor, rector of Jacobstow, aged 65, — a daughter of the late Sir William L.S. Trelawney, Bart., of Trelawne, Cornwall, formerly Lord-Lieutenant of this county.”

      Debrett’s Peerage, Baronetage, Knightage and Companionage, 1878, pages 468-469, refers to Frederick Thomas Batchelor’s marriage to Charlotte. She was a member of the Salusbury-Trelawny family: https://books.google.ca/books?id=RQ82AQAAMAAJ&pg=RA1-PA469&lpg=RA1-PA469&dq=%22frederick+thomas+batchelor%22&source=bl&ots=T_0XsdC5kr&sig=AVsZREX1fgIOh7EclG2Zx5mowQE&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CC8Q6AEwBzgKahUKEwjyy-CZ5JLIAhWIKogKHR09DCE#v=onepage&q=%22frederick%20thomas%20batchelor%22&f=false

      This marriage index document at FamilySearch includes Frederick Thomas Batchelor’s father: Thomas Batchelor: “England Marriages, 1538–1973 ,” database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NFZH-S9R : accessed 25 September 2015), Frederick Thomas Batchelor and Charlotte Salusbury Trelawny, 06 Feb 1855; citing Calstock, Cornwall, England, reference p 184; FHL microfilm 1,545,380.

      The 1881 England and Wales census says that Frederick T. Batchelor was born at St Georgia [which appears to be a transcription error for St. George’s: see below], Middlesex, England, about 1827: “England and Wales Census, 1881,” database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X35D-482 : accessed 25 September 2015), Frederick T Batchelor, Jacobstow, Cornwall, England; from “1881 England, Scotland and Wales census,” database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing p. 7, PRO RG 11/2271 / 44, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey; FHL microfilm 1,341,545.

      More details for Frederick appear in The registers of Wadham College, Oxford, part 2, 1889, page 426; https://archive.org/stream/registersofwadha02wadhiala#page/426/mode/1up: “Frederick Thomas Batchelor. Eldest son of Thomas Batchelor, Esq. Born in St. George’s Hanover Square, aged 18. Admitted C. 22 Jan. 1845. B.C. 23 Nov. 1847. M.A. 17 Dec. 1852. C.M. account closed Lady Day 1857. Educated at Eton. Rector of Calstock, Corn., 1854 to 1865. Rector of Jacobstow, Corn., 1865.”

      The 1841 census for England and Wales appears to show Frederick Thomas Batchelor at Eton: “England and Wales Census, 1841,” database with images, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M7QG-S86 : accessed 25 September 2015), Frederic Thomas Batchelor in household of Francis Hodgson, Eton, Buckinghamshire, England; from “1841 England, Scotland and Wales census,” database and images, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : n.d.); citing PRO HO 107, The National Archives, Kew, Surrey.

      This death index appears to refer to the same Frederick Thomas Batchelor: “England and Wales Death Registration Index 1837-2007,” database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2JYH-FPD : accessed 25 September 2015), Frederick Thomas Batchelor, 1897; from “England & Wales Deaths, 1837-2006,” database, findmypast (http://www.findmypast.com : 2012); citing Death, Stratton, Cornwall, England, General Register Office, Southport, England.

      This page includes a list of Frederick Thomas Batchelor’s descendants: People of Cornish origin connected to BC, Canada; http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=bc-cornish&id=I1937. However, it doesn’t refer to any ancestors on the Batchelor side of the family.

      So that is what has turned up so far.

      Best of luck in your search for further information.

      Robert
