Iím so pleased you sent for the marriage certificate, so could confirm this family.

The birth registrations for the children born 1844 onwards, show the motherís maiden name as Bowell.

Thereís a marriage Anne Bowell to William Barrett 3/09/1834 in Oxford.  I canít see an image for this.

I wonder if the witness, George Rowell, should be Bowell.  Itís a pity the GRO donít send copies of the original certificates, rather than their own (often incorrect) transcriptions.

ADDED  Ancestry have the image for the 1834 marriage

I spent the morning on Ancestry at the library yesterday and managed to find Susannah's birth - baptised 20 Mar 1842 at Wappingham Nothamptonshire - father William Mother Anne. Also found census records by working through Frances Eleanor and I think I now have all the family.
Thanks to help above I have ascertained that William was born 6 Jan 1811 bapt 16 Jan in Cumnor Berkshire; father Joseph and mother Susannah. i can now work on that. In 1881 William wasl living in Forest Hill Village with Anne and a grand- daughter Emily Barrett 16
My Susannah Maria died in NZ in 1901
Now need to check the Rowell connection. I'm sure it is Rowell - I can't see how the Viocar could mis -hear Rowell/Bowell
