William Earnest Batty

Hi, William Earnest is my great-grandfather who I am trying to trace as my late grandfather kept very quiet on the subject. The story from my grandmother is that William Earnest was forced to move down to London, were my family currently comes from, by his father William Batty from Aysgarth in Yorkshire. This is all I know:
William Earnest Batty married Annie Cook on 22th Jan 1916 in Islington. He was 38 years of age and she was 29, therefore probably making his birth date around 1877-8.
My grandfather, Sylvester Wilfred Harcourt Batty, was then born on the 5th Jan 1917, again in Islington.
I would love any information, although I seem to be adding to the plethora of searchs for William Battys in Yorkshire already!Thanks
