I'm trying to find the birthplace of a Samuel Batty, born about 1784 in the US, who moved to Canada and bought land as early as 1809 in Lakeport Village, Haldimand County, Northumberland, in the province of Ontario. Lakeport is near the larger village of Colborne. Samuel may have had a brother David Findley Batty. Samuel's wife was Lucinda and they had at least five children: Henry William, Abigail, Phoebe, Almira and Charlotte Lucinda. Samuel died 1865 in Lakeport. There was some confusion in our family name between Batty and Beatty too; however, most of the Canadians seemed to use Batty. One of Samuel's grandchildren moved to Michigan in the mid-1800s and the name changed to Beatty at that point.
