Narrative and Notes

Esther BATES is identified as the mother of Esther BAILEY on her daughter's birth certificate. According to the 1851 census Esther BATES was born in Berkswell, Warwickshire in 1810-1811, however the 1841 census gives her age as 35 suggesting she was born 1801-1806.

According to her wedding certificate her father was Joseph BATES. There is no baptismal record for an Esther BATES daughter of Joseph in Berkswell parish records or on IGI near 1810/11, but an Esther was baptised by Joseph and Mary BATES in 1802 in Berkswell.

An Esther BATES married Joseph BAILEY on 5 Apr 1838 in Coventry. One of the witnesses was William BAILEY, Joseph's younger brother. The other was Mary Ann EGINTON.

Esther and Joseph had two sons, Joseph and Thomas, and a daughter Esther. They are shown together in the 1851 census living in Regent Street, Hinckley. Joseph is a dairy man.

Her profession as "Dairy man's wife" is reflected nicely in the picture of her with a milk jug on the windowsill.

In 1861 she is living on Trinity Lane with her daughter Esther, and working as a School Mistress. Interestingly this census gives her place of birth as Bedworth, Warks rather than Berkswell. There are near enough in spelling to imply that either the 1851 or 1861 census was mis-recorded.

Esther died on 4 Dec 1862 aged 59.
