  • Notes 
    • "Stephen Barrett is the father-in-law of Elizabeth Alder, who is the cousin of Ferberd Barrett, who is the 2 x great grandfather of Sheila (I130), Paul (I947) and Christine (I571) Barrett."
      If the relationship of Stephen's son Henry was obscure, adding a generation just makes it more so. Nevertheless, the search for a shared ancestor has to follow this route and Henry's relationship to his father and mother was easy to establish through Census records and marriage certificates, Unfortunately establishing Stephen's parentage was not so easy. His mother we reasonably sure of but the records do not precisely identify his father, who could be either of Richard b1785 (i1707) or Richard b1778 (i1708).

      Clearly it would be good to identify the correct Richard but in one respect it makes no difference because their fathers are bothers, their grandfather is shared, so the line back to a potential common ancestor converges again after two generations.
