Samuel Batchelor was born in 1748 in Deep Creek, Norfolk Co., VA.69 He died in Aug 1827 in Nash Co., NC.69 Information on Samuel Batchelor and his family is to be found in Lyle Keith Williams, THE BATCHELOR FAMILY (5000 Rock River Dr., Fort Worth, TX, 76103; 1991), pp. 19-20. My date for Samuel Batchelor's birth is from this source. In listing the dates of Stephen Batchelor's children (of whom Samuel is one) on p. 16, Mr. Williams states that the dates of birth of these children are estimated on their ages and death.
Since Stephen Batchelor was living in Norfolk Co., Virginia, until 1754-7, Samuel would have been born there. A 1753 tax list for Norfolk Co. places Stephen Batchelor in that portion of the county that lay between a hollow poplar, the Great Bridge, Pocoty Road, and Batchelor's mill. This was near the present borough of Deep Creek, where the immigrant Batchelor ancestor, Richard Batchelor, had settled in the 17th century. For more details on the tax list, see file of Stephen Batchelor.
In 1757, Stephen Batchelor appears in the records of Edgecombe Co., N.C. (later Nash), so Samuel Batchelor would have moved with his parents to N.C. in the 1754-7 period. For sources, see file of Stephen Batchelor.
Since Samuel Batchelor seems to have had a son born by abt. 1768, he would presumably have married in Edgecombe Co.
On the 1790 census, Samuel Batchelor is in Halifax district of Nash Co. (p. 69), along with his father Stephen, and other Batchelor Relatives. His family on this census includes 2 males over 16, 4 under 16, and 4 females.
On the 1800 census, Samuel Batchelor is again in Nash Co., near his brother Daniel (p. 91), with 2 males 10-16, 1 male 16-26, 1 male over 45, 3 females under 10, and 1 female over 45. This would place Samuel Batchelor's birth before 1755.
The 1810 census again finds him in Nash Co. (p. 83) near various relatives, including sons, with only himself, his wife, and a female child 16-26 in the household.
On 2 Dec. 1769, SB bought from William Pitman 100 acres on the Great Branch adj. Stephen Vaughan, out of a Granville grant to William Hendrick dated 10 Aug. 1762, with Stephen Vaughan, Solomon Batchelor, and Thomas Harbirt wit. (Edgecombe DB D, p. 385). This suggests to me that SB may have been married by this date.
SB was one of the signers of the 17 Nov. 1777 petition of inhabitants of Edgecombe Co. to divide the county and create Nash Co.; on the source for this record, see file of his father. I have a copy of the original, with SB's signature. Next to him is Joseph Tucker. I suspect that this is SB's brother-in-law; on this, see below.
On the 1782 tax list for Nash Co., Samuel Batchelor is taxed for 280 acres, 3 horses or mules, and 18 cows, with property valued at 67 pounds. The page on which he is enumerated is the same as that on which his father Stephen Batchelor appears. See 1782 TAX LIST, NASH COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA, comp. Jason Edward Brantley (Rt. 2, Box 375, Bailey, NC 27807; n.d.), p. 13.
Aug., 1788, Nash Co. court minutes show Samuel Batchelor as having been appointed a juror for Nov. term (vol. 2, p. 203; for details on source, see file of Stephen Batchelor). SB appears again in Nash Co. ct. minutes at Nov. court, when he is listed as a grand juror (ibid., p. 225).
At Aug. court, 1791, SB was ordered to work the road from Little Sappony Bridge at Arthur O'Neill's to the great Sapponey, along with Daniel, William, James, and John Batchelor, under Robert Creekmore, overseer (ibid., p. 906).
SB appears again as juror in Feb., 1792, court minutes, when he was appointed for the May term (ibid., p. 1072). May court minutes record his qualification as a grand juror (ibid., p. 1081).
The next record I have for Samuel Batchelor is his father's will, in which he is named as a son. If the sons are listed in order of birth, Samuel would have been the third son of Stephen Batchelor. The will is dated 26 Feb. 1796, and pr. Feb., 1806.
In the sale of Stephen Batchelor's estate on 3 March 1806, Samuel Batchelor bought a mug, a side saddle, a howell (?), a cooper's ax, and a froe. For details on Stephen Batchelor's will and estate papers, see file of Stephen Batchelor.
On 20 May 1803, SB was a buyer at the estate sale of James Tucker, along with Joseph, James, and Stephen Batchelor. SB bought a flax wheel at the sale.
On 8 Aug. 1803, SB gave bond with Joseph Batchelor and Robert Creekmore in Nash Co. for Joseph Batchelor's guardianship of Lucy Tucker, orphan of James Tucker; see the estate of James Tucker, 1797, Nash Co. estates, N.C. archives. See also Nash Co. Court Minutes, 1801-1804, p. 258 (see Timothy W. Rackley, abs., NASH COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA, COURT MINUTES, vol. 4 [P.O. Box 2502, Kernersville, NC 27285-2502; 1994], p. 72).
In Feb., 1804, the Nash Co. court appointed Joseph Batchelor guardian of Phebe, orphan of James Tucker; Samuel Batchelor and Robert Creekmore gave security (ibid., p. 301; see Rackley, p. 93).
Samuel Batchelor also appears in an 1810 petition from the residents of Nash Co. The petition is for a new road, to run from Raleigh to Tarboro on the south side of the Tar River. As the road crossed the Tar River, it was to go to John Taylor's place, then along or near John Glover's and Samuel Batchelor's to the Sappony Road, joining this road near where Samuel Batchelor's father had previously lived. This petition is to be found in Nash Co. Petitions, 1777-1859, and was presented to the legislature August, 1810.
The final document I have for Samuel Batchelor is his will and estate papers. Samuel Batchelor's will is dated 19 January 1818, and identifies him as a resident of Nash Co. The will leaves all his land to his son Wright Stephen Batchelor, and divides the residue of his estate between his other children. The will was witnessed by Abijah Pridgen, Josiah Melton, and Drewry C. Batchelor, and signed with SB's mark. The will was proven by oath of the three witnesses at August term, 1827, of the Nash Co. court.
BATCHELOR FAMILY (p. 19) states that Samuel Batchelor's will names a son Barnaby. This is not correct. For reasons to suppose that Barnaby Batchelor was a son of Samuel, see file of Barnaby. BATCHELOR FAMILY also states that Samuel Batchelor's will does not name James and John as sons. This, too, is not quite correct. The will explicitly names James as a son, and John is in the list of other male heirs who are named by the will as heirs and who were paid by the estate. These male heirs are beyond doubt all sons of Samuel Batchelor.
Samuel Batchelor's estate was inventoried by his son Wright Stephen Batchelor, and the inventory recorded at November term of the Nash Co. court. On 6 Sept. 1827, the estate was sold. The estate inventory and sale account suggest that Samuel Batchelor was a middle-class farmer who raised a diverse selection of animals and produce, including sheep, hogs, cattle, and horses. His house seems to have been relatively well furnished--with tables and chairs, a looking glass, a cupboard, and the usual assortment of crockery and kitchen goods to be found in the houses of middle-class Southern farmers of the period. John Glover, a son-in-law, bought the family bible at the estate sale; another lot of books was sold to Wright Batchelor. Whether this means that Samuel Batchelor was literate, and signed his will with a mark, I am not certain. At least someone in the family appears to have been able to read.
An account of the estate was filed at Nov. term 1827.
The name of Samuel Batchelor's wife has not been discovered. I have no evidence to support the following theory, but my guess is that she was a daughter of James Tucker, Sr., and his wife Priscilla. Samuel Batchelor's brother Joseph married Pheraby Melton Tucker, widow of James Tucker's son James, Jr. On this, see files of Pheraby Melton and James Tucker. And, as noted above, Samuel Batchelor gave bond with Joseph Batchelor for JB's guardianship of Lucy Tucker, and SB was a buyer at the estate sale of James Tucker.
Clues that point to Samuel's wife being a daughter of James Tucker: Samuel named his oldest son James, and this suggests that one of James Batchelor's grandfathers was named James. (James married a Tucker himself, by the way). Second, Samuel Batchelor named a son Barnaby, which is not a name that had appeared in previous generations of the Batchelor or Manning family of Samuel's mother, but had appeared in the Tucker family (according to BATCHELOR FAMILY, p. 322, in 1804 Joseph Batchelor and Phereby Tucker sold land to Barnaby Tucker in Nash Co.).
In addition, the will of James Tucker (d. 1797) was witnessed by Robert Creekmore, who was a brother-in-law of Samuel Batchelor. It was also witnessed by Josiah Melton, who witnessed Samuel Batchelor's will, and by William Tisdale. Various members of the Tisdale family appear in the estate records of Samuel Batchelor.
Finally, James Tucker seems to have bought land in Edgecombe Co., N.C., at around the same time that Samuel Batchelor's father Stephen did so. On 11 Aug. 1758, JT of Edgecombe Co. bought from William Bennett of Northampton Co. 100 acres on the south side of the Sapony. The deed was witnessed by Nathan Boddie and William Barrentine, and proven Sept., 1758 (Edgecombe Precinct DB 6, p. 334). This land seems to have been close to that of Stephen Batchelor, suggesting that the two families were closely connected in various ways, and that the Tucker family may have moved from Norfolk Co., Va., to Edgecombe Co., N.C., along with the Batchelor family. In 1769, Stephen Batchelor sold land on Sapony Creek to Joseph Tucker. Joseph Tucker's daughter Ann married James Batchelor, son of Samuel.
It might also be noted that Moses Batchelor, a grandson of Samuel Batchelor, appears to have named a son Daniel Tucker Batchelor. On this, see file of DTB.
I have found no sources that provide strong insights into Samuel Batchelor's character or religious background. For a discussion of the possible religious background of his father Stephen Batchelor, see Stephen Batchelor's file.
The will of Samuel Batchelor does raise some interesting questions about his relationship to his sons, though. In the will, SB leaves all his lands to his "beloved son" Wright Stephen Batchelor, and appoints his "trusty" sons James and Wright Stephen his executors. Does this imply that the other sons were under a cloud of some sort? Since James was the oldest son, the choice of this son to administer the estate is perhaps understandable. But why did SB decided to leave all his land to a middle son? Was it because Wright Stephen was not as established as the other sons were? Or was he the favored son? Did Wilson Batchelor's choice to emigrate to Tennessee have something to do with father-son strife?
A Batchelor GEDCOM file sent to me in Feb. 1998 by Helen Sharpe (1104 Turnstone Dr., Rocky Mount, NC 27803) gives Samuel Batchelor's wife as Elizabeth Westry.

Spouse: William Austin Whitehead. William Austin Whitehead and Sarah Batchelor were married in Dewitt Co., TX.427,429 Children were: Lemuel "Lem" Battle Whitehead, Della R. Whitehead, Lou Emma Whitehead, Dora Whitehead, Mary Jane Whitehead.
Sarah Batchelor was born in 1842 in MS. She died in 1860 in Desha Co., AR. Appears to be the Sarah Batchelor who is on the 1860 mortality census for Desha Co., AR, aged 14, b. MS, died of an ulcer. Parents: Joseph J.R. Batchelor and Sarah Elizabeth Collins.
Sarah Batchelor was born in Nov 1892 in AR. Parents: Edward Eli Batchelor and Mary Paralee Bagley.
Sarah Ann Batchelor was born on 26 Oct 1830 in Nash Co., NC. She died on 23 Jul 1906 in Nash Co., NC. Parents: Berryman Batchelor and Charity Vick.
Sarah E. Batchelor was born in 1848. Parents: Henry John Batchelor and Rhoda Evans.
Sarah K. Batchelor was born in 1824 in Maury Co.?, TN. She died on 19 Jan 1892 in Pauline, Franklin Co., AR. She was buried in Eubanks Cemetery in Cecil, Franklin Co., AR. The biography of Dr. Wilson R. Bachelor states that his sister Sarah was living
with him in 1890. She appears on the 1850 census on the same page as do Dr. Wilson R. Bachelor and their father Wilson R. Batchelor. In this census, she is living in the household of Susannah Franks (Hardin Co., Tenn., 6th civil
distr., p. 203, dwel. 35/fam. 35), and is listed as blind.
On the 1860 census, Sarah Bachelor is in the home of William Pyburn, two houses away from her brother Wilson R. Bachelor (Hardin Co., 6th civil distr., p. 329, dwel. 652, fam. 683). This census notes that she had been blind since the age of seven, from a fever.
The letter of Maud Russell Morris cited in the file of William Skidmore
Batchelor (for details, see this file) states that Sarah Batchelor lived with
Dr. Wilson R. Bachelor till her death at the age of 78, and that she did not
marry. Evidently, she came with Dr. Wilson Bachelor to Arkansas in March,
1870, when he moved from Hardin Co., Tenn., to Franklin Co., Arkansas.
On the 1880 census, she is in his household in Mill Creek Twp. in Franklin Co.,
with an age of 56; this conflicts with the 1850 census, which had given her
age as 30.
In his 17 Feb. 1996 letter to me (cited in file of Dr. Wilson Bachelor), Mr. Bill Russell gives a date of death for Sarah Batchelor that conflicts with that given by Maud Russell Morris' letter. The date I have recorded--19 Jan. 1892--is from Mr. Russell's letter. Note that, if SKB had been living in 1900, she would presumably have been on the 1900 census in the W.R. Bachelor household. She is not. Bill Russell tells me that SKB died at Pauline, AR--I assume at the house of her brother. I also assume that SKB is buried at the Eubanks Cem., Franklin Co., AR, though Mr. Russell's letter does not state this. Could the date of death he sent me be from her tombstone?
My estimate for the birthdate of Sarah K. Batchelor is based on the 1880
census. Since her parents were in Maury Co., Tenn., as per the 1820 census, I
have placed her birth there. She may, however, have been born in Lawrence Co., since there is a tradition in the family of Wilson R. Bachelor that he was
born there. See his file.
The 1880 census gives Sarah Batchelor's middle initial as K., but the letter of Bill Russell mentioned above gives the initial as R.
In a 24 March 1996 letter to me, William Russell (see file of Wilson R. Bachelor) tells me that he believes SKB is bured at Eubanks Cem. in Franklin Co., AR, in an unmarked grave. Parents: Wilson Richard Batchelor and Alcie Odom.
Sarah T. Batchelor was born on 21 Jul 1822 in Nash Co., NC. Parents: Daniel B. Batchelor.
Spouse: Hardy Davis Batchelor. Hardy Davis Batchelor and Sarah T. Batchelor were married.
Solomon Batchelor was born about 1750 in Deep Creek, Norfolk Co., VA. He died before 6 Dec 1808 in Halifax District, Franklin Co., NC. My primary source is BATCHELOR FAMILY, PP. 16, 21. Williams states that he is estimating the dates of birth of Stephen Batchelor's children on the basis of their age at time of death. Solomon is listed as Stephen Batchelor's fourth child in the latter's will. Since Stephen Batchelor was living in Deep Creek, Norfolk Co., Virginia, until 1754-7, Solomon Batchelor would have been born there. On the sources cited above, see file of Stephen Batchelor.
By 5 Jan. 1778, Solomon Batchelor was in Bute Co., N.C.; on that date, he and wife Sarah sold to Samuel Batchelor of Nash Co. 120 acres on the south side of Hendricks' Branch (Nash Co. DB 1, p. 126). Since Williams states that Solomon Batchelor died in 1806 in Franklin Co., I assume that there is an estate record for him in this county. I do not have a copy.
BATCHELOR FAMILY gives descendants of Solomon Batchelor through quite a few generations. Since this is not my direct line, I have included only Solomon Batchelor's children and spouses. All my information on these is from BF. Williams places the John Eldridge Batchelor who m. 1) Nancy Claxton and 2) Mary Jane Lenert/Leverett, and who d. in Stoddard Co., Missouri, on 8 Aug. 1868, as a son of Solomon Batchelor. John E. Batchelor went to Georgia, then to Wilson and Maury Co., Tenn., moving to Missouri in 1840. I have quite a bit of information on this line. Parents: Stephen Batchelor and Mary Manning.
Spouse: Sarah Boswell. Solomon Batchelor and Sarah Boswell were married about 1769 in Bute Co., NC. Children were: Thomas Agrippa Batchelor, Martha Batchelor, Jesse Batchelor, Penelope Batchelor, Reuben Batchelor, Solomon Batchelor, William Batchelor, Zilpha Batchelor, John Eldridge Batchelor, Peyton Batchelor.
Solomon Batchelor was born about 1785 in Franklin Co., NC. He died in 1870 in Franklin Co., NC. Parents: Solomon Batchelor and Sarah Boswell.
Spouse: Elizabeth Cooper. Solomon Batchelor and Elizabeth Cooper were married on 30 Apr 1824 in Nash Co., NC.
Spouse: Leony Wood. Solomon Batchelor and Leony Wood were married on 11 Dec 1833 in Franklin Co., NC.
Spencer Monroe Batchelor. Parents: Moses Valentine Batchelor and Mary Murdock.
Stanley Guy Batchelor was born in 1903.408 He died in 1984.408 Parents: James Walter Batchelor and Mary Elizabeth (Mollie) Spurlock.
Starling Jones Batchelor was born on 27 Nov 1830.430 He died between 1906 and 1910.430 Parents: Cullen Batchelor and Cynthia Ann Deans.
Spouse: Marila "Realy" Ann E. Manning. Starling Jones Batchelor and Marila "Realy" Ann E. Manning were married on 10 Feb 1853 in Nash Co., NC.430 Children were: Thomas Pridgen Batchelor, Wiley W. Batchelor, James Monroe Batchelor, Elizabeth "Bettie" "Bunch" Davis Batchelor, Lannie A. Batchelor, Mary Etta Batchelor, Lucy A. Batchelor, Bertie Batchelor, Leacy Ann Cynthia Batchelor.
Stephen Batchelor. Parents: George Richard Batchelor and Catherine D. Ryan.
Stephen Batchelor was born about 1702 in Deep Creek, Norfolk Co., VA.32 He died before 23 Nov 1806 in Deep Creek Township, Nash Co., NC.32 Parents: Joseph Batchelor and Mary.
Spouse: Mary Manning. Stephen Batchelor and Mary Manning were married about 1743 in Norfolk Co., VA.32 Children were: William Batchelor, Stephen Batchelor Jr., Samuel Batchelor, Solomon Batchelor, Mary Batchelor, Margaret Batchelor, Elizabeth Batchelor, Joseph Batchelor.
Stephen Batchelor Jr. was born about 1730 in Norfolk Co., VA. He died about 1801 in Franklin Co., NC. My primary source is BATCHELOR FAMILY, PP. 16-7, 317-8. In this source, Williams says that he is estimating the ages of Stephen Batchelor, Sr.'s, children on the basis of their ages at death. The will of SB, Sr., which names Stephen, Jr., as a son suggests that SB, Jr., was his second child. On these sources, see file of Stephen Batchelor. Since Stephen Batchelor, Sr., was living in the Deep Creek area of Norfolk Co. until he came to N.C. between 1754-7, SB, Jr., would have been born there.
The 1800 census lists Stephen Batchelor, Jr., in Franklin Co., N.C. (p. 464), with three male children under 10 years of age and a wife aged 26-45. SB is listed as over 45.
Edgecombe Court Minutes for 1769 exempt SB, Jr., from paying taxes and from other duties. The court record shows that he was exempted because he was "infirm and decrepit." On this, see BATCHELOR FAMILY, P. 317. In 1779, SB entered on a tract of 100 acres on the north side of the Tar River on Sapony Creek in Nash Co.; this was granted to him on 1 Nov. 1784 (Nash Co. DB 4, p. 102).
On the 1782 tax list for Nash Co., SB is enumerated next to his father, with 100 acres of land, 2 horses and mules, and 13 cows. On this source, see file of Stephen Batchelor.
On 15 Dec. 1794, SB sold this tract to Abner Lewis, both of Nash Co., with Robert Creekmore, Daniel and John Batchelor witnessing the deed; RC was his brother-in-law, Daniel his brother and John his nephew (Nash Co. DB 6, p. 99).
This sale indicates that SB was moving from Nash to Franklin Co., because in Feb., 1801, SB of Franklin Co. sold to James Green of Nash 60 acres on the north side of the Little Peachtree Creek adj. Jack Batchelor, Thomas Jones, and Green, out a tract originally granted to William Lindsey (Nash Co. DB 6, p. 516). On 26 Jan. 1801, SB witnessed the sale of land on Barrentine's and Sikes' Branch by Matthew Manning to Joseph Batchelor, both of Nash Co. Joseph Batchelor was SB's brother. The deed was also witnessed by Robert Creekmore, their brother-in-law, and Arthur Taylor (Nash Co. DB 6, p. 554).
BATCHELOR FAMILY gives descendants for SB. I have included only his own children and their spouses; all my information about these is from this source. Parents: Stephen Batchelor and Mary Manning.
Spouse: Margaret. Stephen Batchelor Jr. and Margaret were married.
Stephen Batchelor was born on 5 Aug 1903 in Crawford Co., AR. He died in Jan 1986. Parents: James Lemuel Batchelor and Charlotte Isabella Spangler.
Stephen Batchelor. Parents: Robert Marion Batchelor and Marsha Francis.
Stephen Wilson Batchelor was born on 15 Aug 1845 in Drew Co., AR. He died on 15 Dec 1945 in Van Buren, Crawford Co., AR. Stephen Wilson Batchelor (15 Aug 1845, Drew Co., AR-15 Dec. 1945, Van Buren, AR) was a son of Joseph J.R. Batchelor. ANNALS OF ARKANSAS, Dallas T. Herndon, ed. (Hopkinsville, Ky.: Hist. Record Assn., 1947) has information on this family. It states that SWB was a messenger for the Confederate Army and died at Fort Smith, Arkansas, at the age of 99. Parents: Joseph J.R. Batchelor and Sarah Elizabeth Collins.

Thomas Agrippa Batchelor was born on 23 Dec 1772 in NC. He died on 14 Apr 1842 in Liberty, Amite Co., MS.
