Susanna Maria Barrett
« on: Sunday 03 December 17 02:44 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for the birth and family of Susanna Maria BARRETT. It is thought her birth year was 1847 Oxford. She married James William CLARK OND 1875 in Headington Oxfordshire - father maybe W A Barrett.
One son was William Henry born 10 July 1876 Wraysbury Eton and it is thought that a twin was born at the same time but died. They departed for NZ sometime before the 1881 census.
I have searched Family Search, Ancestry, Findmypast index, FreeBMD and Freecen but to no avail.
Thanks if you can help.

Hi Carol,

Do you have their marriage certificate? As stated by Solidrock it shows James as James Richard.

I can't find Sussanah Maria prior to the marriage but there is a Sussanah Maria Tyler marrying a Charles Barrett in Lambeth in 1868, is there any chance that she was a widow when marrying James?

Working on the assumption that neither bride nor groom were necessarily resident in Headington, there is a possible on previous censuses:  1861 Susan BARRET age 15 with grandparents John and Lucy Osman in Egham, Berks.  Unfortunately, this family doesn't have Susan's father with them!  Egham is very near Eton.

However, as I can't find a transcript of the full marriage record online it is impossible to be certain - I think the only way to be sure is to get a copy of the marriage record from GRO to find out Susannah's father's name and occupation.

All the best
Philip

Not likely that she was widowed, the GRO registration for William Henry Clark, 1876 in Eton, gives mothers maiden name as Barrett, another birth registered in 1879 in Eton for Winifred Hilda Clark, MMN Barrett.

Christenings;
SUSANNAH MARIA Barret/t
20 March 1842   Wappenham, Northampton, to WILLIAM/ANNE
6 March 1850 St Hilda, South Shields, Durham to JAMES/SUSANNAH
+
SUSANNAH MARY* Barritt 30 October 1845, Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire to WILLIAM/ANN

A Tree has this last one as the Susannah that married James Clark.
I have no idea if it is correct. Unless they have the M/C to confirm her Fathers name/occp

1861/1871 that Family is in Lancashire, William is a Toll Collector born c 1816 Cockyard, Derbyshire.
She is just Susannah M on 1861/1871 Census with her Parents.

1881 William/Ann are back in Derbyshire and William is now a Innkeeper.
1891 William is a Widower, Publican, Son John is with him.

1861 in Lancs we have;
William Barratt 45 Toll Collector
Ann Barratt 40
Susannah Barratt 15
John Edward Barratt 9


Strangely Susannah is not at Home in 1851 Census in Derbyshire;
William Barratt   32 Toll Collector
Ann Barratt   27
John A Barratt   7 mths

Possible Birth Reg;
BARRATT, JOHN  EDWARD, Mothers mn TURNER***
GRO Reference: 1850  D Quarter in CHAPEL EN LE FRITH  Volume 19  Page 450


OK, Susannah Mary is NOT yours as Trees have stated.

She married John BARKER 1873 Lancashire (FreeBMD) and 1881 her Brother is with her and Family.
John Barker, 32
Susanah M. Barker, 33, Wife, born Chapel Le Frith, Derbyshire
Edith G. G. Barker, 5
John E. Barratt, 30, Brother in Law, born Chapel Le Frith, Derbyshire
Annetta Barker

So to summarise as Solidrock/ Jo have said the 1875 M/C is a must to buy to establish her Fathers name/occp.

Also as I am from NZ I know how good Death Certs can be for info on Parents etc.


Trish :)
