Henry/Enrique Batman emigrated from England-Mexico. Help with any/all Spanish Sources please?

+4 votes
Henry Batman was my 3rd Great Uncle, a number of sources indicate he emigrated to Mexico to work on the railroads in the late 1800's.

I have attached my ancestry profile to his new wikitree profile but as I've come to add him to our tree, I've discovered I really can't make head nor tail of the profile I've created over a number of years on ancestry! To source him on wikitree I need to understand Spanish records in Mexico! Could anyone please volunteer to help me please?

Its worth adding that I believe his married twice in Mexico and had 3 children!

Hi Lizzie,

It seems there are no indexed records on FamilySearch for Henry/Enrique Batman/Bateman in México's records. There would be needed to make a "Page by page" search on the films.

Do you know when/where his children were born or he got married?

Thanks for replying Reuben, I too had no luck with family search! There are images of documents on ancestry but I can't understand them and I'm unsure how to upload the image onto here, below is what I have gathered from other trees and Ancestry translates it to English, so whether it is accurate I have no idea!

He supposedly married Minnie Deakin on 28 Ago 1882 • Mexico, Distrito Federal, México.

 I've copied and pasted the info below from my ancestry account. Anything you could find would be most welcome. 

This is how his second marriage looks in ancestry sources....

Record No. 454, 2nd. to the top of page 137:


Birht certificate of Guillerma Josefa, the DAUGHTER (She was a baby girl. Gender - Mujer = Female) of Enrique (Henry) Batman and Minnie Deakin. Born in Orizaba. Veracruz, México on 07 Sep 1887.

Enrique: 30 y/o, Married, from England, maquinista: Train driver.

Minnie: 21 y/o, from England.


Federico Clark: Married, 32 y/o, from England, maquinista.

James Hooper: Single, 21 y/o, from England, maquinista.

I think this is a reliable source to add a profile for Minnie.

Thank you so much, a 'slap my hand on my head moment' I knew females are 'a' and males 'o' I should have realised!

Now on to proving who Enrique was!

I'll add Minnie and Guillerma Josefa with that source! Thank you again!
You're welcome Lizzie.
