  • Notes 
    • ** Ferberd Barrett born 1876 6:27 6th child of Ferberd & Ellen and the second person to have the unusual name. He was born on 17th November 1876 @ Longworth.

      Found on 1881 census age 4 with parents at 50 Churches Cottages Longworth. On the 1891 census he is age 14, and the family are now living at 87 Main Street Fyfield, two doors away from James Barrett the postmaster, uncle to Ferberd junior and brother to Ferberd senior. The 1901 census found him age 24 with wife Mary age 26 living at Kingston Bagpuize. Ferberd is a domestic gardener. There are no children listed at this time.

      [Edit - Paul Barrett 30 Aug 2017: The address given for them on the 1901Cenus is strange. It clearly says "Church St John Baptist" and I am not sure what that means]

      Searched for a marriage reference. He married Mary Thatcher on 14th August 1900. Mary’s father was a market gardener. (Bertha is a witness at this wedding. She must be about 16.)

      Searched for a death reference and found he died on 10th February 1943 @ Penrhyn Castle, near Colwyn Bay. He was 66 and had been a groom at the castle and he died from myocardial degeneration. Present at his death was one Gladys Bale, daughter, also living at castle.

      Gladys was born in November 1901. Found a marriage certificate but it states her father was Richard. Will investigate further in next generation. Need to wait for 1911 census for more information especially with regard to any children. 1911 census reveals Ferberd and Mary still living in Abingdon area. Ferberd is a Domestic Gardener. Shows 2 children, Gladys May age 9,born 1902 and Hilda Evelyn born 1910.
