Hi I,m not surprised to see a Mallory -Batte marriage.The first Mallory-Batte Marriage is the main claim to fame of the Batte Family. The Mallory Line back to Royalty is one of the best verified lines, I have ever seen.You can find it in Magna Charta Surieties-1215. Also all of the books of ancestors of American colonists have this line.The Batte's come in shortly before their entrance to Virginia. Katherine(Martha Mallory) married John Batte of Okewell, Yorkshire, who emigrarted to Virginia.She was the daughter of Rev. Thomas Mallory and Elizabeth Vaughan of Studley, Chester, Yorkshire.
