Not to be confused with the Mary Ann Bateman who was a bookseller and law stationer in Bucklersbury in the 1840s, this Mary Ann Bateman, née Smith, was born in Blackfriars and baptised 1 Dec 1816 at Christ Church, Southwark, the daughter of Samuel and Mary Smith. She married the Irish printer Rowland Bateman at St. Giles Cripplegate 23 Mar 1840. After his death in 1856 she formed a partnership with John Diprose as “Diprose & Bateman”. Presses were licensed to them in 1859 and they were employing fourteen men and boys in 1861. The partnership was later continued by her daughter, a further Mary Ann Bateman (1841-1920). The latter partnership was formally wound up in June 1878. The elder Mary Ann Bateman died 21 Dec 1904. Probate on her estate of £2,379.1s.2d was granted to her daughter 18 Jan 1905.
