|Bateman of Hartington|
|St Mary's Gate House, Derby.|
The Osborne property included St Mary's Gate House in Derby, which became his principal home. Sadly, he demolished the old Sacheverell manor house in Morley in 1757, and did not replace it.

around Morley being divided in the 19th century, new houses were built on both portions. Morley was constructed to the designs of the eminent church architect, George Frederic Bodley in 1894-99 for Hugh Alleyne Sacheverell Bateman (1860-96), although the client died before the house was finished, and it was completed by his widow, who inherited the estate.

Can you help?
- Does anyone know why Sir Hugh Bateman (1756-1824) was given a baronetcy? At this date, they were usually a reward for political, civil or military service but none of these seems to apply in his case.
- Can anyone supply a good quality image of St Mary's Gate House, Derby, which was repurposed as Derby Baptist Chapel in the 19th century and demolished in 1938?
- Does anyone have further information about the ownership of Morley Manor since its sale in 1938?
- I should be most grateful if anyone can provide photographs or portraits of people whose names appear in bold above, and who are not already illustrated.
- Any additions or corrections to the text above will be gratefully received and incorporated. I am always particularly pleased to hear from descendants of the family who can supply information from their own research for inclusion.
