I know you posted about this a while ago but hopefully you will still see notification of this response anyway.
I am descended from a Robert Battersby, born Dec 17 1866 in Lancashire England. He had a son, Robert Jr. born Mar 24, 1900. I'm descended from his other son Nathaniel Battersby born in July 1 1889.
I am currently in the process of creating a web site detailing the Canadian pioneering efforts of Robert Battersby Sr. from his autobiography. You can see that web site here: http://robertbattersby.blogspot.cahttp://robertbattersby.blogspot.ca
I also have some further family tree information which I'll happily share if you contact me.
Paul Battersby (great-great grandson of Robert Battersby Sr.)
