  • Notes 
    • ** Albert John Barrett 5:9 Thought he would be a “piece of cake” to write about as according to Dad’s information, he married a Martha and had only one son Richard who died in infancy.

      There is more to him than that.
      Birth reference @ Abingdon v 2c p 136 4th quarter 1843
      Marriage reference 1 @ Abingdon v 2c p 573 3rd quarter 1865
      Marriage reference 2 @Headington v 3a p 777 1st quarter 1880
      Death reference @Abingdon v 2c p 206 3rd quarter 1899
      1851 census finds him age 7 and living with parents, John & Harriet.
      1871 census finds him age 27, living with wife Martha and son Thomas born 1867 and Albert born 1871 Richard was born in 1872 and died in 1872 Birth reference @ Abingdon v 2c p 282 3rd quarter 1872 Death reference @ Abingdon v 2c p 163 4th quarter 1872
      1881 census is even more interesting. It would seem that Martha has died and Albert has married again to one Ann Dyer. There are 2 step – children. There is also a Lily Barrett born 1869 but I cannot find any birth record searching between 1867 and 1878. There is another daughter Martha Barrett born 1875. Death reference for first wife Martha @ Abingdon v 2c p 199 4th quarter 1878 which makes her about 35 and this matches Dad’s information.

      Albert’s second marriage was to an Ann Dyer @ Headington v 3a p 777 1st quarter 1880. This cross references with a search for a marriage of one Ann Dyer. Ann had 2 children of her own by previous marriage, George and Elizabeth. 1891 census shows Albert as a Carpenter and Innkeeper at--- wait for it— “The Dog House” North Street, Marcham. Looks as though Albert had more children with Ann, Florence b 1883, Marie b 1885, Harry b1888 and Dorothy b 1890. Albert died in 1899 and here the trail goes cold because, at this stage, cannot find anything on the 1901 census about the rest of his family. Continue research with 1911 census. (He's not there either - Paul)

      (Paul) So who is Annie Calcutt? The tree has Florence, Marie and Harry has her children, not Ann Dyer's (She was married before. Sheila)
