Not a known son of Rev. Stephen Batchelder, of Hampton

"Mr. Bachiler had three sons: Nathaniel who was a merchant; Stephen, who served as chaplain to Sir Charles Morgan in Holland; and Samuel, who was a minister in Sir Charles Morgan's fighting regiment in Holland ..."

From Geni member J Sherman Jan 2016:

Hopefully this is helpful. The mother of Rachel Atwood, is actually Rachel Bates, not the alleged Jane Cowper (Cooper) etc.

The recent (2005) research showed that William Batchelor married Rachel Bates on Sept 19, 1625 in Biddenden (which is roughly 20 miles from her parents home area of Lydd. (TAG 80 (2005) 23).

The Jane who is married to a William Batchelor is most likely a different William. Batchelor was a common name.
