Madeline & Bill Batty
Madeline Mottram did not have any children or therefore descendants to remember her.
I always admired the wedding photo that hung on my Aunt's hallway wall. I think Madeline's dress was so beautiful & she looks like a porcelain doll.
I don't know much about Madeline, except that my Aunty said "she was lovely".
My Great Grand Aunt, Madeline Mottram was born on the 15th September 1884 in the mining community of Havelock, near Maryborough, Victoria, Australia.
At age 24, she was working as a 'domestic' when she married William Charles Batty on the 23rd March 1909 at Havelock. Bill was a miner, who was also born at Havelock.
After the death of Bill's father in 1913, the Batty family moved to Collingwood and Bill and Madeline were living with Bill's mother and siblings.
They lived in various Melbourne suburbs until Bill died in 1952 and Madeline moved from North Fitzroy to Whittlesea, then Humevale.
She died of pneumonia and and chronic renal failure when she was age 88, on 1st January 1972.
