YoD and approx YoB from gravestone in Burton upon Trent.
IGI: There is a HANNAH Pool dau of Hugh and Hannah, bapt 6 Dec 1730 in Rushton Spencer, Staffs - however this is nr Macclesfield, so some distance from Burton. Given number of Hannah's (inc her own dau) I wonder if she WAS Hannah, but known as Anne?
Also, given that nearly 30 when married, I wonder if Pool is a married name, ie she was born Butt (or something else) but was the Widow Pool when marrying Wm?
In Bateman biog she is Anna, but on chr. records on three of her children she is Ann, so I have assumed this is correct .... (later) but on grave is Anne, so I'm now going with that !
Henry Bateman biog "One of her Uncles was the the Rev Dr. Butt another I assume that Dr Butt was my grandmother's brother and Crump(s) and Salt the husbands of her sisters. Crump(s) surgeon at Albrighton, Shrops and a third (possibly by marriage) Mr Salt the father of Henry Salt our Consul General in Egypt".
From this, having read about Salt and the Butt sisters - Lucy and Mary Ann - the following would seem to be the case;
Dr.Carey Butt (d1781) married Elizabeth Marten/Martin(d March 1801) 3 Apr 1737, Lichfield;
..Alice Butt married Thomas Salt , had 8 children in total inc;
......John Butt Salt MD (eldest son) xxx - 1804, died unmarried
......Jane Salt (1771-1865) m firstly Robert Halls MD, secondly Lt-Col de Vismes
.........(1758-1840), he later succeed to title and she become Comtesse de Vismes,
......Elizabeth Butt Salt married Simon Morgan, surgeon
......Thomas Salt, died at sea on trading vessel
......Charles Salt, Doctor in Cheltenham, married firstly Miss Meacock (issue
.........Catherine), secondly to Miss Wolferston
......Henry Salt (youngest child) 14/06/1780 Lichfield - 30/10/1827 Alexandria
..John Marten Butt, (b 14 Oct 1738, d 1769) died in Bath without issue
..Rev Dr George Butt DD (d 1795 or 1796 in Stanford, Worcs), married Martha Sherwood
..Chaplain in Ordinary to George III;
......Mary Martha (1785-1851), married cousin Capt. Henry Sherwood, author
......Lucy Lyttelton (1781-1858), m Rev George Cameron in 1806,12 children, author
..Rev Thomas Simon Butt (d Blurton 1801)
......Three unknown issue
..Ann Butt, married William Jordan - THIS PERSON??
..xxx, married Crump the Surgeon of Albrighton
Alternatively could be related to one of the Butt wives/husbands, which would mean Hubbal, Congreve, Sherwood (a cousin) or Lyttelton.
I also have Butt family tree which largely supports this, but does NOT show the Crump or Jordan connections, indeed shows Carey's ONLY dau as the Alice who married Charles Salt. Doesn't however show any siblings to Carey which might be a possible place for a link ...?
However it doesn't mention Jordan or Crump (or evidence of other siblings) in any of the references I've found to Butt and/or Salt, so to enter it we'd be relying 100% on Bateman's (largely illegible) biog. Hmmm. Almost certainly there IS some blood connection (if nothing else William BUTT Jordan) , but it worries me that it might not be exactly as outlined above - there could be second/third marriages involved etc. etc. As first step we need to uncover marriage details of William Jordan and Ann Butt and see if her father is listed as Cary. This could be tricky as don't even know where/when they married !! Although presumably circa 1760s and possibly in Lichfield, Staffs (only 11 miles from Burton) .... although appear to have found Wm Jordan marriage to Anne POOL in 1761 in Burton. Hhhhhmm.
Sir William Butts (1485-1545) is the 'Doctor Butts' in Henry VIII by Shakespeare.
Could this be the 'Physician to the King' that Ann G-P used to talk about, although I always thought that was more recent !?
This leads us all over the place including yet another author;
But this branch is too far away to go into in great detail yet!
Above in more detail;
Henry Salt (1780-1827), noted artist, traveler, diplomat, and Egyptologist.
Can see that his father was Thomas Salt and his mother Alice Butt, dau of the surgeon of that place (Lichfield). It then says Alice was descended from a good family. She was the dau of Cary and Elizabeth Butt, who had also issue;
John Martin Butt MD, who died at Bath, 1769, leaving no issue
George Butt DD, Rector of Stanford, Vicar of Kidderminster and King's Chaplain who died at Stanford and left three children (We know of Mary and Lucy - who is the third ??). Rev George Butt was tutor to Lord Valencia for 3 years and it was under his roof at Stanford that his Lordship formed a friendship with John Butt Salt, MD, the elder brother of Henry. The friendship between Lord Valentia and the Butt's was subsequently drawn closer by the marriage of Rev George Cameron, a descendant of the Lytteltons, with Lucy Lyttelton Butt, dau of Dr George Butt and godchild to his lordship's mother. This Lucy Cameron was a well known author. His other dau Mary Martha Sherwood was a well known children's author.

Rev Thomas Simon Butt (d1801). He for some years held the living at Arley, presented to him by Lord Valentia and which he subsequently resigned in favour of his son, the Rev Thomas Butt, the present Rector of Kynnersley in Shrops. (Did he have any other children ??)
"The maiden name of Mrs. (Mary Martha) Sherwood was Butt, and she traced her descent from an ancestor who was said to have come over with William the Conqueror. Her family was certainly one of very old-standing in the midland counties. Her grandfather, Dr. Butt, resided in Lichfield, at a time when it was the centre of a brilliant literary coterie, including Miss Seward, Richard Lovell Edgeworth, Dr. Darwin, and Mr. Day, besides being visited occasionally by Dr. Johnson and David Garrick from London. His son, George Butt, entered holy orders, and was presented to the rectory of Stanford, in Worcestershire, where his daughter, Mary Martha, the future authoress, was born in 1775. In her autobiography she has given a charming description of this place, where her girlhood's days were spent, and the remembrance of which we see vividly reproduced in her delightful pictures of English country-life in the Fairchild Fancily."
"A notable family connected with Stanford was that of Dr. George Butt, divine and poet, rector of Stanford 1771–95"
"Cary Butt, who died at Pipe Grange in Pipehill in 1781, practised in Lichfield as a surgeon. His practice was continued by his son-in-law Thomas Salt, one of four surgeons in Lichfield in 1793. Thomas, who died in 1817, was probably the 'Mr. Salt' from whom the later medical writer Shirley Palmer learnt the rudiments of medicine."
"By will Cary Butt (d. 1781) of Pipe Grange in Pipehill devised in trust for sale 3 a. in Lichfield which he had acquired from Catherine Taylor. Part was already charged with a payment of up to 10s. for the Lichfield poor. In 1783, when Butt's trustees sold the land, the rent charge was said to be 15s., payable to the poor at Christmas. The origins of the charge are unknown. Taylor's conveyance to Butt did not mention it, but she was later alleged to have been anxious to secure its payment. About 1820 the solicitor to Butt's trustees was distributing the 15s. income of what had become known as Mrs. Taylor's Charity among deserving poor, giving preference to Mrs. Taylor's kin. (fn. 101) No more is known of the charity."
"An estate known as PIPE GRANGE by 1377 (fn. 134) was held of the manor of Longdon by the prior of St. John's hospital, Lichfield, in 1298. The house was assessed for tax on three hearths in 1666. (fn. 139) In the early 18th century it comprised a main block with a small west wing. (fn. 140) It was later altered, probably by Cary Butt, a Lichfield surgeon and apothecary, who was living there in 1779; it was then described as 'a low house with two bay windows and two large parlours'. (fn. 141) Further alterations were made by Canon Hugh Bailye, chancellor of Lichfield cathedral, who was the tenant in the 1820s. (fn. 142) The house, which is rendered, had a south front of two bays, with Venetian windows to the first floor and semi-circular windows to the attics; a ground-floor room was added on the south probably in the early 20th century. A large drawing room with a bedroom above was added on the east in the later 19th century. A long, single-storeyed rear-wing probably dates from the 18th century. There was a dovecot near the house in 1398. (fn. 143) "
