Anne Battams, 82, painter, descendant of Md. settlers

Anne Lloyd Battams, a Baltimore painter and descendant of early Maryland settlers, died Sunday of pneumonia at Union Memorial Hospital. The Guilford resident was 82.

Mrs. Battams, who continued painting until nearly the end of her life, was known for her impressionistic portraits and still lifes.

A Cambridge native, Anne Lloyd Bayly was a direct descendant of the Lloyds who settled in Talbot County in 1649 and later built Wye House and Wye Heights, two of Maryland's historic Eastern Shore homes.

She was a graduate of Cambridge High School and made her debut in 1939 at the Bachelors Cotillon. She later studied art and trained at the Maryland Institute College of Art, Academie Julien in Paris and the Schuler School of Art in Baltimore.

Mrs. Battams was a member of the National Society of the Colonial Dames of America in the State of Maryland and the Mount Vernon Club.

Her marriage to Carlton Slagle ended in divorce.

She was a communicant of Christ Episcopal Church in Cambridge.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Cathedral and Read streets.

She is survived by her husband of 37 years, E. DeWitt Battams; a son, David Lloyd Slagle of Easton; and two granddaughters.
