Hi Patrick

Isn't it frustrating when we really don't know the absolute truth!

I don't know too much about John Crozier's mother Jane.  She is in the 1841 census with her sister Ann and her son John aged 3 but by 1850 she is dead and her son, John, is in the workhouse. In 1852 John Crozier/Barron is living with his uncle AFB and with AFB's wife committing a crime - I personally believe AFB had full knowledge of this crime. 

Family history suggests Jane Crosier was illiterate and her family was Scottish but the info for her and her brother in the 1841 census and beyond suggests she/they were born in Northumberland.

Jane's brother John and family are also in the 1841 and '51 census.  I will give you more details about this

Apart from the 1852 incident with Ann Pearson the wife of AFB there was also a later incident with John Crozier abd his brother-in-law - Grey/Gray where John was found guilty and imprisoned for 6 months for fraud.

I believe that in 1852 there was a higher influence which stopped John Crozier being prosecuted - could it have been GB I wonder?

Anthony Forster Barron and Anne Pearson

Yes Patrick has done a lot of work re the Barron Family.

John Lancelot Crozier whose father was George Barron - Anthony's brother,  was my partner's great grandfather.  John Crozier's mother was a Crozier and his father was a Barron.  When John married in a Catholic Church in Newcastle he listed his father as a George Barron - Gentleman.

John's mother died in 1850 when he was about 13 and in 1851 he is listed in a workhouse.

By the following year, 1852, he is out of the workhouse and living with his Uncle - Anthony Barron and his wife Anne.  There are several newspaper articles concerning a robbery in which John along with Anne stole china from a nearby warehouse.  The articles refer to Anthony Barron as John's uncle.

Both Anthony and Anne were arrested.  Anne was sentenced to 6 months and Anthony was acquitted.  Amazingly John was never put on trial even though he was seen stealling the objects and admitted doing so.  It was even suggested in the reports that John suggested stealing the china in the first place.

Anthony Barron did not remain with Anne and remarried.

Hi folks

If it's any help to anybody this is what I have on Anthony Forster Barron so far. (another colourful character in the Barron family)

Baptised 28th December 1819 at Cockshaw RC Chapel, Hexham. Son of David & Frances Barron, his Godparents were his cousins Edward Baty & Ann Forster. His baptism entry states that he was born 3 months earlier. We also know that his father, David Barron, was tenant farmer at Spittal Farm, Haltwhistle at this time.

21st May 1841 Newcastle Courant. The partnership between Thomas Oyston and Anthony Forster Barron, Cabinet Makers, Joiners & Furniture Dealers is dissolved by mutual consent. All debts by the firm of Oyston & Barron will be received and paid by Anthony Forster Barron. Premises were on Pilgrim Street.

AFB was married 12th September 1842, St John the Baptist Church of England, Newcastle upon Tyne to Ann Pearson, daughter of Thomas Pearson (dec) Master Mariner.

September 1844. AFB was sentenced to 1 years hard labour for assault and attempted rape upon Hannah McNess.

6th February 1847, Newcastle Journal. AFB is listed as an insolvent debtor, out of business, and living with his mother, Frances Barron.

19th June 1847, Newcastle Guardian. AFB is remanded, but discharged at Newcastle Police Court, on the charge of stealing a silver watch.

29th September 1848, Newcastle Courant. AFB is advertised as being in business with either his brother John or brother Joseph, (probably Joseph as he died in 1849 after which from 1850-1860 AFB is advertised alone) as a Cabinet Maker, Joiner & Furniture Dealer at 26 West Clayton St, Newcastle.

1850. Newspaper advertisements at this time regularly advertise Anthony Forster Barron's well stocked showrooms including a fine selection of goods from London.

7th August 1852, Newcastle Guardian. AFB, his wife Ann and nephew John Crosier are charged with the theft of a large number of chinaware from the premises adjoining.

11th January 1856, Newcastle Courant. AFB appears as a witness in the manslaughter trial of a Mr Beardsmore.

17th May 1856, Newcastle Guardian. AFB appears in Court for drunk and disorderly. He is described as of respectable appearance, and draws mocking laughter from the public gallery when he asks the press not to report his trial in the local newspapers.

11th April 1857, Newcastle Guardian. AFB is charged at Newcastle Police Court for assaulting his apprentice, William Gordon.

2nd January 1858, Newcastle Journal. AFB hands over his estate to the creditor William Wanless.

24th August 1858, Newcastle Courant. AFB appears a prosecutor at Newcastle Police Court, against Henry Hardy, who stole a mirror from his store.

c1863-66. AFB is trading as a Cabinet Maker, Joiner & Furniture Dealer at Elswick East Terrace, Westgate, Newcastle upon Tyne.

25th May 1866, Newcastle Courant. AFB appears as a witness at the coroners inquest of Agnes Laidler (recently killed by a tram) AFB states that the married woman lived with him in the capacity of housekeeper (mistress).

c1866-69. AFB is trading a Cabinet Maker, Joiner & Furniture Dealer at Temple Lane, Thornton St, Westgate, Newcastle upon Tyne.

23rd May 1868, Newcastle Guardian. Whilst acting in the capacity of bailiff, AFB is charged at Newcastle Police Court for disorderly conduct whilst entering premises on Percy Street, Newcastle. His brother David 1814-1876, had recently been charged with running an illegal distillery on these premises.

29th May 1869, Newcastle Guardian. AFB is declared bankrupt at Newcastle County Court.

21st May 1878. AFB age 58 married Elizabeth Simmons age 39 at Holy Trinity Church of England, South Shields, County Durham.

January 1880. Death of AFB age 60 at King Street, South Shields, he is buried at Westgate Hill Cemetery, Newcastle upon Tyne Ward C No 287. 

Thus far I have been unable to trace the deaths of AFB'S 1st wife, Ann or 2nd wife Elizabeth . At the moment the number of children that he seems to have had were

Mary Elizabeth born 1843
David born 1847
George born 1849
Ann born 1862

But there were probably other's. If anybody has more info I would like to hear.

Thanks
Patrick
