European Aristocracy
Lady Anne Spencer was a member of the aristocracy in British Isles.


Lady Anne Spencer was probably the third of six children and the eldest of the two daughters of Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl of Sunderland, and his second wife, Lady Anne Churchill; one of the daughters and co-heirs of John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough, and his wife, Sarah nee Jennings.

At this stage there is no clear indication of exactly when Anne Spencer was born, but it was probably during the period 1702-1705, as her parents married on 2 January 1699/1700 and the eldest two sons, were born 2 December 1700 and 24 October 1701. Her next brother Charles Spencer who succeeded as 5th Earl of Sunderland and 3rd Duke of Marlborough was born 22 November 1706.[1]

Anne married in 1720, William Bateman, the son and heir of Sir James Bateman, of Shobdon Court, county Hereford and other lands, and Lord Mayor of London, and his wife, Esther Searle.[2]

They had issue:

  1. John Bateman, born April 1721, for whom his great grandfather, John Churchill, 1st Duke of Marlborough was godfather, succeeded his father as 2nd Viscount Batemen;[2]

William Bateman, was created Viscount Bateman, and Baron Culmore, county Londonderry, in the Peerage of Ireland on 12 July 1725, Anne becoming Viscountess Bateman.[2]

He died in December 1744 in Paris, and she died about twenty-five years later on 19 February 1769 at Cleveland Row, Middlesex. Her will, which was dated 6 April 1757 was proven 27 February 1769.[2]

Spencer-2673 and Spencer-17 appear to represent the same person because: Apparently only one of Charles Spencer and Anne Churchill's daughters was named Anne, so these must be the same person.
