I wonder if Nathaniel Bateman is an Ancestor? Our family ancestors were from London

Dear Geoff, Nathaniel Bateman was such a peripheral figure in James Cook's naval career that his ancestral line has not been researched by the Captain Cook Society. I can inform you that when Nathaniel died in 1798, he left a will identifying his three children - Charles Philip Bateman, Frances Augusta Bateman, and Mary Ann Bateman. And when his son Charles died in 1857, he left 3 children . Using a genealogical website such as Ancestry, it should be easy to follow the descent of Bateman's patriarchal line, and see if it leads into your known ancestors. Good Luck with your research.
