    watching what is being said. My thoughts on this above is: Very very interesting. He would have been around the age of 18, putting aside the bit that says "Dependant family cannot raise the money" because to my knowledge he had no family as in no children of his own then, however he could have...

    OMG!!!! I cant believe it, thank you for that, certainly wasn't expecting it. One small thing it says "Charles" barnet burns when it should be George and if you have been reading my other replies some of us think that he just called himself barnet. On his birth details he is only George. Also...

    Well said, my thoughts exactly. At one of his lectures he had been booed and jeered at and called fake so not every one was taken in. I am going so far as to say the name Barnet could have been added by himself as his birth details are just plain George. Barnet sounds more up market. Can I ask...

    Definitely a big difference as she was down as a pedlar in the 1841 census. Me thinks it was a posh name conjured up in their minds to attract people to the shows they put on. Yes you can definitely roll your eyes lol Popsit

    I see at the beginning you say two brickwalls he has made there. Can I say not as although he was born George he never used this name until his death when he has his full name that rosina last wife/partner must have known about and gave it as info for the record. In the 1841 census he has told a...

    Re: help or advice wanted. So if say Barnet was born in Scotland from parents or one parent who was born in England, that's why the words "british subject" would be used, yes?. In the 1841 census Barnet says he was born in Scotland him being a mariner at the time and Rosina who he marries by...

    Hello, Thank you for your reply. I actually have noted that very same death in her notes with a big question mark. At 34 she could have also been married before. Might have a look for any Cain children with a mother Bridget. In the 1851 census where Barnet and Rosina are lodging also lodging was...

    Re: help or advice wanted. Hello, Wow!! what a tangle. Thank you again for digging out what you have. I am wondering if the people above might not have been my George Barnet Burns grandparents. The George you found baptized in 1805 could be my one, in fact I think he was. In the 1841 census I...

    I have a Barnet Burns. He says in the 1841 census that he is 40 years old and born in Scotland. He is down as a lodger. In the 1851 census he says he is 44 (should be 50). He states he is a "British subject". He doesn't make it to 1861 as he has died in East Stonehouse Devon. My query is did he...

    Thank you Peter for your reply especially the Wikipedia write-up. So was I correct in thinking that George Barnet Burns who died in 1860 was the one written about in Wikipedia and didn't use his first name of George and that his parents were George Burns and his mother was Anne Stewart. I think...
