red mail Batchelor's Peas And Cup Of Soup
Some time ago I found the following on the web "Referring to 'Batchelors of Cup-a-Soup' fame, the company was started by a William B, a grocer who sold his homegrown food in his shop. He heard of the new idea of canning the veg. and tried it out- with amazing success. William Batchelor was born in Sheffield, South Yorks., to Zechariah Batchelor who in 1851 was a grocer aged 50 living in Camp Lane, Sheffield. Zechariah was born at 'Bradford, Wilts' - which I take to be Bradford-on Avon.", I'm unable to find that site again. --- The International Genealogical Index shows a christening of Zechariah Batchelor, 15 Feb 1801 at the Countess Of Huntingdons Chapel, Bearfield, Wiltshire, England - that is in Bradford-on-Avon. --- Does anyone know a little more of the history of the BATCHELOR family. I have a vague connection to the Bradford-on-Avon Batchelors but my query is really pure curiosity.
