c. 1870s -- Zellica Sarah (Batt) Rothwell

c. 1870s -- Zellica Sarah (Batt) Rothwell

Zellica Sarah (Batt) Rothwell was born in 1833 in Dublin, Ireland and married Hugh C. Rothwell on 7 Sep 1859 in Ingersoll, Ontario, Canada. Together they had 9 children, including my great-great grandfather Charles Garnett Rothwell. She died 6 Mar 1895 in Frontenac, Ontario, Canada.

I've also seen her name spelled Zelica, Zelicia, & several other variations.

Many thanks to my distant cousin for sharing this and other family photos with me.

Zelica Sarah Rothwell my great great aunt

Zelica's brother Benjamen was my great great grandfather.
Their mother was Zelica Dalrymple Cheshire who married William Batt. She was born in Antigua where her father Charles Cheshire was master of the Nelson's dockyard. After he left the navy he bought a plantation in Antigua.He was married to a lady named Sarah and we don't know any thing about her except Zelica's name suggests she was a Dalrymple. They had two daughters Zelica and Jane. Charles Cheshire came from Ayr in Scotland and his Mother was Zelica McDermott.
If anyone knows anymore it would be great to hear, especially about Sarah Charle's wife.
