Surnames: MALE, BATTY
I have a small amount of information about the Male family. My gg-grandfather Finlay Wellington Batty, of the village of Lakeport, near Colborne, Haldimand Township, Northumberland County, Canada, married Elizabeth Male. Job Male's family lived next door to the Battys. I haven't done much research on the family, so not sure if he was her brother or father.

I have this on other members of the family:

008672 - 1895 Charles HAYNES, 24, farmer, Cramahe twp, Colborne, s/o John & Maggie HAYNES, married Madie MALE, 19, Colborne, same, d/o Job & Elizabeth MALE, witn. Joseph HAYNES & Ida MALE both of Colborne, March 5 1895 at Colborne

008796-95 (Northumberland) Randle M. MALE, 20, blacksmith, Colbourne, Colbourne , s/o Charles MALE & Lowiza MCDONALD, married Alberta MORSETT, 25, Castleton, illegible Tp.- Northumberland, d/o Maxwell MORSETT & Lowida MARLERS, witn: M.E. MAX(sic) & C. M. MCFARLIN both of Warkworth, 23 October 1895 at Warkworth

010471 97 William Jas. McCRACKEN, 30 widower, farmer, Canada, Cramahe, s/o George McCRACKEN, & Eliza COYLE married Ida MALE, 25, Canada, Colborne, d/o Job. MALE & Elizabeth SCOTT, witn. Harry COLTEN & Jas. McCRACKEN both of Colborne, Nov. 2 1897 at Colborne

I also have basics on Wellington and Elizabeth's marriage in 1951.

Would be interested on anything else you may have, and particularly Elizabeth Male who married Batty. Any idea when your Males arrived in Canada?

You don't have anything on Job Male, do you? My gg grandma was Clair Male. The 1881 Canadian census has a Vinna MC Males as a daughter of Job Males, married to an Elizabeth Males, and as the dates are quite consistent as far as birth, I'm assuming this is her.

I'd have to check my files, but I believe a Job Male was my great-great-grandmother's brother. Her name was Elizabeth Male and she married Finley Wellington Batty. They lived in Lakeport, Ontario. I don't know much about the Males, other than where they lived -- nearby property to my gg-grandmother's family. Do you have any info at all on the Males ... or the Battys? I'll see what I can find here.

Unfortunately, the Male part of the tree is worst when it comes to details.

From what we knew, gg grandpa Charles Glenny married Mary Louise Male, who died in 1903 after giving birth to a Nellie L Glenny (1888-1891), and then married her sister, Clair, from whom we descend. According to the grave markers, she lived from 1880-1972 and is buried here with Charles. Weirdly, the Winnebago County annals say Mary Louise died with her child in 1888 *shrugs*

My sister-in-law researched names through film and found a record of a Charles W. Glenny (born 1862 in Colborne District, Ontario) marrying a Mary Louise Male (born March 28 1866 in Colborne) on Jan 5 1888 in Colborne. But my gg grandpa's middle name was Albert, and he was born in 1865. Still, the probability of those two names on a marriage record in the same year and the same area is highly unlikely. This same record names Mary the daughter of a Job Male and Mary Louisa (Scott). My sister-in-law found two records for Job Male, both born in Ontario Canada in 1847 or 1844.

Then, as I mention, I just uncovered a census record putting both a Vinna MC and Mary L in the Males house (Males, not Male). According to the entry, they were daughters of Job and Elizabeth Males, sisters to Ida EA and Hellen MM. The birth years match up quite close, and so I'm prone to believe this is my family: Vinna MC (June 2 1880), Mary L (March 28 1866), Ida EA (c 1874), Hellen MM (c 1877). They were living in Ontario at the time, and Job was employed as a blacksmith.

I've been told by my mom and late grandfather that gg Grandma Glenney was full blood Native American, and I'm honing in on this branch in order to find out which tribe she's from. There is a constant mix up of middle names and first names, which, with the double middle initials in the census record for their children, I'm prone to believe that those could stand for Native American names, as in Joe Standing Bear Smith. It's a theory, at least. I don't know for sure yet.

I'm sorry I can't give you anything on the Battys. That name has never come up in my search at all.

I'll keep your information in mind and let you know if I come across anything. Meanwhile, all I really have is the marriage:

"Finly (Finlay) Wellington Batty, to Elizabeth MALE. 16 Jan. 1851, Haldimand. Rev: WAIT. Wit: Benjamin Jackson, Almira Jackson, his wife and several others."

Note that in the 1881 Census the family is listed as German, which the Battys definitely were not. I'm not sure where that mistake originated, unless the Males were German.

And since the Males and Battys were one after the other on that census, they were immediate neighbours. I have assumed that Elizabeth (nee Male) Batty and Job were sister and brother because of the ages, but that's a guess.

Good luck with your research.

I'm also interested in Lakeport/Colborne area generally, so if you come across any general info about life there in the early days, 1790s to 1900, I'd be interested. Thanks!

I have info on Job Male and the Male family. Job's brother was my 3gr-grandfather. Part of the Male family (mine) moved to the Rochester area about 1885. Job was actually married in Rochester area but lived in Canada (ferry ran across the lake). I have info on Job and marriages and where he is buried, etc. It will take me a few days to get time to dig out info but will post it soon.

I also have the info on Job's parents and siblings and when they came to Canada and from where, etc. I also have family pictures of Job's sister-in-law Louisa (my relative)
Will post info in few days.
