Hello from Australia

Hi my name is Angela & I am from Australia. I have recently acquired a book titled" The Queen Elizabeth Coronation Souviner" from 1953, The dust jacket is
quite damaged but on the inside of it there is an inscription "To the Hodge Family with love & Xmas wishes from Grandpa Batton 1953" please note that the "o" in Batton could be an "e". Would any body be able to help shed some light on this, who could this "Grandpa Batton" be?? I am related to "Sophie Grand Duchess of Saxe-Coburg'' ,she goes back 8 generations in my dads side of the family tree..

Welcome. The name probably is Batton, a surname from the lowlands of Scotland.
