Mr and Mrs Robert Bateman and their children sailed from London aboard the City of Adelaide arriving here on 11th October 1866 [1]. The passenger lists and newspaper lists give their names as Mr. R. Bateman, Mrs. Bateman, Miss Kate Bateman, Miss Emily Bateman, Master Robert Bateman and Master Henry Bateman. The family were passengers in the second class cabins.

Through diligent research we have learned the following facts about this family, and are able to provide some of their descendants as well. Robert Bateman was born 14 Mar 1819 [2] in London, the son of Robert Bateman and his wife Isabella (surname not identified). He was baptised at St Mary’s Church in St Marylebone Road, St Marylebone, London on 9 May 1819 [3] . No siblings for him have been identified for him at this point, but there may well be some.

Robert Bateman married on 14 Oct 1846 [4] at St John the Evangelist Church, Notting Hill, London, ENG to Elizabeth Fuller. Her birth date has not been located, but she died on 26 Sep 1899 at East Adelaide, SA [5]. Robert died at the Royal Adelaide Hospital on 12 Oct 1899 [6] - just three weeks after his wife. No burial location has yet been discovered for them. When Mr and Mrs Bateman sailed for Australia, they brought five children with them. Locating their records has not been an easy task, since their names were given in the papers simply as Mr and Mrs Bateman, Miss Kate, Miss Emily, Masters Henry and Robert Bateman. One of the daughters was not listed, but did arrive with the rest of the family. These are their descendants:

  1. Eliza Florence Bateman, b. 1848, London, ENG; bap. 19 Nov 1848 [7], St Thomas' Church, Stepney, London, ENG; d. after 1915 South Australia; m. 24 May 1882, Christ Church, North Adelaide, SA [8] to Thomas Carr WILSON.
    Eliza Florence Bateman may also have been married to a John Clark at St Peter's Church, Williamstown, SA in 1869. If that woman is the same Eliza Florence Bateman as this one, she would have been 21 years old at the time, but the information contained in her record is insufficient to positively identify her. Eliza, who was the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth, did marry Thomas Carr Wilson, and had four children with him:
    1. Thomas Henry Wilson, b. 15 Apr 1883 [9], Adelaide, SA; d. 11 May 1884, [10] Hindmarsh, SA.
    2. George Robert Wilson, b. 10 Mar 1885, Adelaide, SA [11]; d. unknown; m. 18 Apr 1911, at the residence of the bride's parents, Gladstone, SA [12] to Lily Victoria Dunning.
    3. Philip Sidney Wilson, b. 23 Mar 1887, Adelaide, SA [13]; d. unknown; m. 12 Jun 1919, St Paul's Church, Adelaide, SA [14] to Mary (formerly) Bridge nee Gamlin.

  4. Emily Isabella Bateman, b. c.1855 presumably in England; [51] d. 13 May 1887, Adelaide, SA [52]; m 15 May 1873 (double wedding with her sister Kate) [53] at Christ Church, North Adelaide to William Gordon (Russell) STEVENSON. He was born in about 1853 at an unknown location, and he died at New Glenelg on 6 Jan 1909, aged 56 years.[54].

His first wife Rosina Osmond nee Langford, passed away on 5 May 1908[58]at the age of 34 years. Her death records gives their address as New Parkside, and that she died at New Parkside. It is very likely that his first wife died from complications of childbirth, as there was a baby born to them just on a month before she died. Frederick and Rosina had only two children, and he had two more children with his second wife Daisy.
      Child of Frederick Richman Stevenson and Rosina Osmond nee Langford:
      1. Gordon Richman Stevenson, b. 27 Dec 1904, Adelaide, SA.[59]

Rosenhain, of First Ave., St Peters, one of the best known watchmakers in South Australia. Mr Rosenhain was born in Adelaide in 1850 and after serving his apprenticeship he became a watchmaker in the establishment of Mr. W.N. Pratt, of North Adelaide and Rundle Street. He was afterwards foreman for Mr. D Fiminster who was in business in King William Street, and then he carried on business on his own account in King William Street. He was a Freemason, and a member of the I.O.O.F. and M.U. He was popular in musical circles, being a good pianist. He played for dancing at the Mental Home weekly for about 40 years. Mr. Rosenhain married a daughter of the late Mr. Robert Bateman, and his widow and family of five (Messrs. C.H., E.F. and A.C. Rosenhain, Mrs. M. Smith* and Mrs. G. Tainsh) survive him." In fact they had 6 children, one died quite young. Note the * marked detail in this report - The author of the article in the paper has spelled her surname incorrectly - it should be SCHMIDT.

A thorough check of all births, deaths and marriages for children with Rosenhain (or variant spellings) was conducted on SA, VIC, NSW, WA, QLD and TAS records by the researcher - with the result that the only Frank Reginald Rosenhain born in the time frame has to be the child of Kate Mary Ann Bateman and Carl (Ferdinand Julius) Paul Rosenhain.
