Thanks Val.

I agree. Strange.

That's an error with father as Augustus Stanley. That's a brother of Annie Violet/Violet Annie:

BARNES Augustus Stanley Funeral notice 10OCT1938 Funeral late of Parramatta Sydney Morning Herald 10OCT1938

I think some Electoral rolls might help.

Thanks Rupert.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Monday 29 May 1939 p.10
DEATHS
BARNES.-May 28, 1939, at Ryde District Hospital, Lydia, beloved wife of Augustus, and dear mother of Eric, Fred, and Grace. Aged 74 years.


I think senior is just Augustus, junior is Augustus Stanley. I have no birth for Augustus.
