  • Name John BARRETT 
    • By process of elimination,it would seem that John's wife Elizabeth, was baptised at Wokingham in 1739. The on line record does NOT give her birth date, so there is a possibility she was born before 1739.
      With a birth date of 1739 she would have been barely 17 at marriage.
      The on line marriage info for them states that Elizabeth was only in residence in the area for 4 weeks, so she must have come from outside the area.
      Because of her young age could that be the reason they were married by Licence Bond?

    • I edited this date from 1 Nov 1700 to 14 NOV 1731

      The latter date is in accordance with Sheila's notes. The former date is simply not possible because his father's birth date was 1700!

  • Notes 
    • From Dad's notes. John Barrett 1720 - 1796 ref 1:2 There is doubt as to the date of his birth, but if he was supposed to be 76 when he died, it is possible he was born in 1720. If this is so he couldn't be the father of Richard b1780. Dad felt there was another generation interposed but he could find no records to establish this, so perhaps should attempt to find more information. From further information from fiches purchased from Berks FHS, it appears that he was baptised @ Longworth on 14th November 1731 and the second child of a Thomas and Mary Barrett. John married Elizabeth Burgess @ Abingdon St.Helen's Church on 5th January 1756. It would seem there was a son John born 1756 and a son William in 1762. Need to find out if there were other children. He was buried @ Fyfield on 17th July 1796
