  • Notes 
    • From Dad's (F H Barrett I1019) notes.
      Richard b 1780 ref 3:1 Richard's date of birth was found but no record of his death. He was the son of John and Ann. He was a Wheelwright and Publican at Fyfield.

      He was married to an Ann, maiden name unknown and no marriage date found. At this time there were no records of births, but the church kept registers of baptisms. In most cases baptisms took place no more than a few weeks after the birth, so dates given are indicative.

      Richard and Ann had 8 children: Mary born 1803 married Benjamin Ballard Thomas born 1807 Hannah born 1809 married William Slay John born 1811( the founder member of our branch of the family) married Harriet Alder Emma born 1813 Ann born 1814 Jane born 1818 Albert born 1819.

      If Richard was born in 1780, would he still be alive in 1837? Checked 1841 and 1851 censuses and found nothing significant. ( Found one Richard on 1851 census but he was a farmer) Could he have died between 1837 and 1841. N.B. on-line records start 3rd Quarter 1837 so he may have died before this. Found 3 death references: @Woodstock v 16 p 103 2nd quarter 1843 @ Abingdon v 6 p 93 3rd quarter 1847 * try this one @ Banbury v 16 p 14 4th quarter 1850

      Found an Ann on 1841 census described as a widow, living at Buckland, which is not too far from Fyfield. Could this be Richard’s widow? She was not on subsequent censuses. @ Abingdon v 6 p 102 1st quarter 1845. * Not sure about this as Richard would definitely have to have died before 1845. Later found an Ann age 80 who died in 1866@ Abingdon v 2c p 159 4th quarter. Need to check 1861 census again.
