About Betsy Button

The baptism for Betsey is missing, but the census places her 1816-20 in 1841, and 1819 in 1851, and her death report at 1820.

Betsy Button, widow, daughter of Nash Kemp and Amy Read, died at Brougham Street, Ballarat, aged 84yrs, in 1904 Reg 240.

Betsy left less than 100pounds personal property, but did leave real estate. her surviving children, Nash Kemp Button (a miner) of Creswick Road Ballarat, Butcher; Jabez Button of Creswick Road Ballarat, hotel keeper; Rodney Button of Clyde Street Ballarat Cab driver; and Charles Button of Brougham Street ballarat, gentleman, sons and Jane Baker of Horsham married woman; Isabella Hare of Neil Street Ballarat married woman; and Hepsy Challis of Winchelsea, married woman, her daughters.

Betsy seems to have died intestate, but the trustee company handling her estate has made a right meal of it. Each child got 10pounds 7sh &9pence, a 1/7th share of her personal property. No more mention of real estate. James left his sons the butcher shop, hotel and two gold mines, with other stuff to the daughters, Betsy's house should probably have been included.
