Bateson, Spears, and Ebbs in the Probate Records

Thomas Bateson died young in the 1870s. His brother Christopher Henry Bateson had preceded him in death.

Thomas and Martha Mann Bateson had 3 children: Alice, Georgia Agnes, and Thomas Remington. After Martha died, Thomas relinquished the care of the girls to the Episcopal Orphan Home and the care of young Thomas to William Spears and William Ebbs. Then Thomas the elder and Thomas the younger died, and somehow one of the documents shows Spears and Ebbs to be the guardian of the girls, even though by then the girls were both past age 20.


Can someone please tell me how Bateson, Spears, and Ebbs are connected?!
