Notes Edit

  • He was born on the same day Lady Edith Crawley married Herbert "Bertie" Pelham, the Marquess of Hexham.
  • Like Sybbie, he was born inside Downton Abbey.
  • Johnny is a nickname for John, so it is possible his full name is John Bates Jr., after his father. However, this remains unconfirmed.
