  • Notes 
    • born 1811. ref 4:4

      Married Harriet Alder of Tubney on 16th November 1831. They had 12 children.Dad describes John as the founder member of our branch of the family and he was a publican and carpenter at Fyfield.

      Have found an entry in a Post Office Gazette of 1848 which describes Fyfield at that time. Looking under the heading "Trades", John Barrett is first on the list as the landlord of the White Hart and also a wheelwright. The White Hart is the only pub in Fyfield and it is on the main road.

      Having done a "Pub search", have found some information about the pub today. It looks very picturesque. Wouldn't it be interesting to know if the landlord today was a Barrett??!!

      I wonder if the pub or Brewery might have any historical records to find out about Richard (John's father ) who was also a wheelwright and publican and any of his forebears? They may also have been in the trade.

      John died on 23rd July 1868 from vascular heart disease. Ellen, his daughter, was present.

      John and Harriet had 12 children:)

      Richard born 1832
      Henry born1833
      William born 1834
      James Augustus born 1836
      Emma born 1837
      Elizabeth born 1838
      Rosina born 1840
      Jane born 1841
