  • Notes 
    • ** James August Barrett 5:4 Born 1836. Died 1909. The 4th child of John & Harriet. He seems to be a key member of the family in genealogy terms as his first 3 brothers seem to have died without issue. He is our Great- Great Uncle being an older brother of Great – Great Grandfather Ferberd, who was 10 years, his junior.

      James married a Rose Weaving on 16th February 1861.

      1851 census finds him at age 14 living with parents.
      1861 can’t find him.
      1871 He his living next door to brother Ferberd, he is a wheelwright and has 6 children.
      1881 has 3 more children
      1891 James is a carpenter and Postmaster, living at 85 Main St. Fyfield and Ferberd is at 87. Also living with him is one Martha Barrett age 17 and described as his niece (who’s child is she?)
      1901 Finds him living at the Post Office in Fyfield village. His wife is still alive and also living with them is son Thomas age 36 a wheelwright and son Fred age 21 also a carpenter.

      According to Dad’s information, James died in 1909 and a death reference has been found: @ Abingdon v 2c p 161 3rd quarter 1909 According to Dad’s information, James & Rosina had 6 children but according to census information I have found 9.

      3 of the children on Dad’s list are not on mine. These are Percy, Walter and Rhoda, who supposedly died in infancy. Percy was born in 1884, Walter in 1890 and Rhoda in 1894, but this would put James & Rosina especially, into their late forties and mid fifties. Surely Rosina would be past menopause? Will investigate this when dealing with generation line 6.

      Percy Walter & Rhoda are NOT children of James & Rose.(2010)
