Ann Batten, daughter of John Batten of Rochester in Kent and his wife, Ann Nicholson, was born on 24 August 1789. [1] According to Holgate Batten, Ann was the daughter of Ann Nicholson, not her sister, Sarah. [2] According to the 1841 Census she was 50 years old. This would make her Ann's daughter. No birth record has yet been found.

Her mother died in 1794 and her father at once married Ann's aunt, Sarah Nicholson. [3] Ann herself married William Curry Hillier, son of William Hillier and his wife, Sarah Woodriff, at St Mary, Whitechapel on 12 January 1812. [4] She and William had 9 children and six of them were still at home, Chatham, in 1841.

Ann died on 31 May 1850 [5] aged about 60. It seems that William was already ailing for her personal estate valued at £199 11s 6d was probated to Edward John Hillier, their son, on 27 June. The entry states that he was an executor of William's will but does not mention Ann's. Ann was buried at St Margaret on 7 June. [6]
