Willie, Elaine and Mouraine
OkSamuel was the son of Simon Battin brother of John Battin.
John and Simon sister was Margaret Battin. Margaret Battin married Moses Martin.This would make Samuel and Rachel Martin first cousin.
Margaret Battin, wife of Moses Martin, probably came to Pennsylvania from England as a young single woman. We know that she was a sister of Simon Battin, who also came to Pennsylvania, because Rachel Martin, daughter of
Moses and Margaret (Battin ) Martin was disowned by Chester MM on 3 mo. 28, 1750 for marrying her first cousin, Samuel Battin. Samuel Battin appears to have been a
son of Simon Battin.
Birth: ABT 1658 in Ardington,Berks,England

The family records of William BRINKLEY & Joan SICKLES

- John, born 6 mo.4, 1680 in Ardington, Berkshire, d. 1 mo. 29, 1723.
He m/1 in Ardington, Berkshire, Catherine Smith, on 24 Feb. 1700.
John and family came to Pennsylvania about 1705.
John m/ 2 Elizabeth, about 1712, likely in America.
- Mary b. 2 mo. 18, 1683. She probably married John Bunce.
- Simon, married . (Another source states that he settled in Aston Twp.,
now in Delaware County, PA.)
- Adam, married Mary Andrews, likely the daughter of Matthew Andrews.
(This may be the Adam Battin who owned land near to the land of Thomas
Martin in Middleton Twp., Delaware County, PA.)
- Margaret, born in the early 1690's, who married Moses Martin.
Henry Battin, the father, was buried 11 Jan. 1697 in Ardington, Berkshire.
He was not mentioned in the will of his father who outlived him and neither
were his children, which may have been because thery were Quakers and
dissenters. Henry's grandfather was Adam Batten, b. about 1588 and married
Jane Clarke daughter of John Clarke of Ardington, July 11, 1616 in Sutton
Courtenay. He died in 1664 in East Garston at the age of 76.
