      we know some of the records of St. Nicholas Parish Church, Fyfield were destroyed in a fire, so this may be the reason

  • Notes 
    • Checked to see if he was on 1841 census but nothing found. No information known other than birth date. Found him on 1851 census, most likely to be him, and he is a carpenter living with his wife Jane in Marcham.

      Found him on 1861 census age 71 and a widower. Not on 1871 census so may have died in between. Following death refeences found: @ Faringdon v 2c p 147 2nd quarter 1861 @ Abingdon v 2c p 182 3rd quarter 1864 @ Abingdon v 2c p 177 3rd quarter 1866 age 77 which is about right so order this certificate first.

      Not able to find him on 1841 census when he would be about 52 and therefore not found out if he had any children.

      John Barrett born 1789 3:4

      Further Research
      When searching for links to a Henry Barrett who married an Elizabeth Alder, found one James Barrett born 1816 whose father was John Barrett, a wheelwright. This was initially put aside because of tiredness and over concentration. After a few days, it was looked at again and soon came the realisation that he could well be the John Barrett of generation line 3:4.

      Had previously found him on the 1851 and 1861 censuses, but had not been able to find him on the 1841 census and have no idea why he couldn’t be found before So, on 1841 census there is: John Barrett age 50, born about 1791(only 2 years out from Dad’s information) so this had to be considered.

      He has a wife, Jane, also compatible to Dad’s information. Jane was born about 1785 which is also comparable to information previously found on 1861 census. Additionally the census shows John and Jane with 2 children, James born 1816 and John born 1821. (It is quite possible that they had more children but this information is not available on-line at present so may have to visit the parish.)

      This census shows that John senior is a wheelwright, James is an agricultural labourer and John junior is a blacksmith. They were living in Marcham high street. Possible death references for John senior are: @ Faringdon v 2c page 147 2nd quarter 1861 @ Abingdon v 2c page 182 3rd quarter 1864 @ Abingdon v 2c page 177 3rd quarter 1866 Will follow up on James and John junior.
