Hello crankypants,

I think it's time to revisit the BARRACLOUGH family.

My great grandmother Elizabeth Ann b. 3 Apr 1861 Braidwood d. 16 Feb 1933 in St James Rd Waverley

A nephew:

John Askham King BARRACLOUGH I have 1930 ER Division Wentworth. Please see if you can find him in the same Division in 1936 with spouse Nellie May.

John died 1950 in Paddington but so far I can't find Nellie's death.


A Sibling:

Albert Herbert b. 1867 d. 1936 Royal Park, Vic,

I have him with spouse Nellie (yes another Nellie) in ER in 1931 in Henty. Please see if you can find them after 1931.

Son:

Roy Mortimer b. 1900 d. 1944 Prahran

Please look for Roy and spouse Irene E in Henty also.

Thanks.

Dave

Hi Dave

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Wentworth – Bellevue Hill
BARRACLOUGH John Askham, 592 New South Head road, optician
(no Nellie May)

No sign of Albert or Nellie in 1936. I noticed George Askam is with them in 1931 so I searched for him in 1936 and no luck. Checked all Henty Division in case surname spelt incorrectly and nothing:confused:

1936 VIC Electoral Roll - Balaclava - St Kilda Central
BARRACLOUGH Irene Euphemia, 26 Blessington st, home duties
(no Roy Mortimer)

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much.

I'm puzzled. If Nellie, spouse of John is in the 1930 but not the 1936 one then I expected to find her death in NSW or a remarriage if they divorced??

This is her birth:

18554/1894 CLARK NELLIE M EDMUND W HARRIETT A LEICHHARDT

Spouse John was also born in Leichhardt.

This is not her death:

22375/1944 HITCHEN NELLIE MAY EDMUND KATHERINE SYDNEY

because of this marriage:

5480/1916 HITCHEN RICHARD C HAWKE NELLIE M NEWTOWN

John & Nellie had two children that I know of:

John Askham b. 29 Mar 1916
Nellie May Clark b. after 1918
----------
A sibling

Harry King b. 1891 Leichhardt d. 1949 Kingsford

married 1919 England

Annie Eveline Elizabeth MAKINS b. 1898 d. 1940 Hornsby

I have them in NSW South Sydney in 1930.

Please see if you can find them in NSW in 1936. Thanks.

------------------
Another sibling

Eric Brisbane King b. 1896 d. 1944 Adelaide

married 1920 Sydney

Enid Dora HANSON b. 1899 d. 1948 Glenelg

I have them in Vic in Kooyong in 1931 but I don't know when they moved to South Aust.

Please see if you can find them in Victoria after 1931. Thanks.

==
Ok, female nickname of "Bib" would be short for what?

I'll get to Albert Herbert and his spouse Nellie soon.

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

I've just been diagnosed with E/R fever.:D :D :D :D (have just administered the first dose of merlotbiotics). :D :D :D

I'm starting to wonder if there's a BARRACLOUGH curse or vendetta out to drive me crazy.

Now for Harry & Annie, yes I've got my finger on the trigger. The e/r also has Harry Askham BARRACLOUGH in 1930 Parramatta/Beecroft, he is listed in 1936 under Harry BARRACLOUGH, Parramatta/Beecroft, image has Harry Askham.
So this Harry is the only listed in 1936. Now where the heck is your Harry & Annie.:confused:

Eric & Enid not on 1936 e/r VIC. I even got the South Australia death cd out to make sure they were on it.


cheers

Hello crankypants,

Sorry about that. :D :D Your fever may last a few more days.

There are two Harry - the one with Annie has middle name of King and they can't be found in 1936 although I think they would still be in a suburb close to Sydney.

The Harry with spouse Grace has a middle name of Askham and he is the one who lived in Eastwood so he is the one in Parramatta/ Beecroft.

Please give me the 1930 & 1936 Parramatta/ Beecroft one. Thanks.

=========
Yes, George Askham is with his parents Albert Herbert & Nellie in 1931 in Henty. I have no death for George and no idea what happened to him.

Roy Mortimer enlisted in Melbourne and was discharged in 1919 and he died in Prahran in 1944. I have nothing to say he moved out of Victoria between 1919 and 1944 although he may have. I have no death for his spouse Irene E.

A third sibling:

Dorothy may b. 1899 d. 1978 Caulfield

married 1920 Vic.

Jack Gregory KENDALL b. 1892 d. 1967 Box Hill

Cemetery Springvale Botanical Cemetery
Given Names JACK
Surname KENDALL
Date of Service 15/06/1967
Burial Type CREMATION
Location Details The cremated remains have been collected.

Please see if you can find Jack & Dorothy.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. You can see why I didn't do the BARRACLOUGH first :D :D but they are too closely related to leave them for last.

The Harry Askham in Cheltenham is actually another one I had not got to yet :2fun: the son of the youngest of my great grandmother's siblings, William John b. 1875 d. 1941 Annandale

married 1903 Paddington

Annie Prest SMITH b. 1877 d. 1941 Petersham

Please see if you can find William John in Parramatta in 1930. Thanks

I'll get to their three children soon.

=======
There is a Dorothy May KENDALL in 1936 in NSW in Hume - I don't know if that her or not.

Not finding her spouse is something that would fit the pattern with him - I can't find his birth either - his service record says he was born in Maryborough, Qld. or possibly Victoria, in 1892.

KENDALL Jack Gregory : Service Number - 6521 : Place of Birth - Maryborough QLD : Place of Enlistment - Melbourne VIC : Next of Kin - (Sister) HUGHES R A

It took ages and ages but finally someone thought outside the box and found his sister's marriage to Robert A HEWS

Sarah E Kendall married Robert A Hews in 1901, Reg# 391 - Registration District Hay - Whitton is nearby.

Sarah died in Bendigo in 1967.

=======
Great find!! Thanks for the Springvale Cemetery records.

The cremation record for Roy is the only time I've seen his name as Royston. I didn't know he remarried. I would say yes with the cremation 2 days after the death.

George Askham married 1940

Winifred May JELLETT b. 1907 Stawell d. ?

Regards,

Dave

Hello crankypants,

Albert Herbert is listed as Albert Henry with spouse Nellie in 1903 in North Melbourne.

It's confusing as well because I can't claim ALL the BARRACLOUGH. John and Mary arrived in Australia with infant Frederick Armitage, b. 1856 Huddersfield.

Frederick married in 1878 Paddington, NSW

Jessie J BLUE b. 1858 St Leonards d. 1917 Ryde

They had one son Frederick born 1878 to 1885 somewhere but birth can't be found. Looks like they divorced or separated. Father and son appear in ER in WA:

AUSTRALIAN Electoral Rolls WESTERN AUSTRALIA 1906 PERTH Wittenoon Street
No Name Address Occupation ***
68 BARRACLOUGH Fred 159 Brown Street Bricklayer M
69 BARRACLOUGH Frederick 159 Brown Street Contractor M

Frederick A died in 1935 in Como.

FREDERICK BARRACLOUGH KB00051969
80 27/03/1935 COMO
KARRAKATTA CEMETERY ANGLICAN XC 0018B

I have no idea what happened to Fred jnr after 1925:

AUSTRALIAN Electoral Rolls WESTERN AUSTRALIA 1925 PERTH PERTH
No Name Address Occupation ***
80 BARRACLOUGH Fred 485 Hay Street Bricklayer M


Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

1930 N.S.E Electoral Roll – Parramatta – Beecroft
BARRACLOUGH Annie Prest, Beecroft road, Cheltenham
BARRACLOUGH Norman Joseph, Askham, Beecroft road, Cheltenham, clerk
BARRACLOUGH William John, Beecroft road, Cheltenham, mint operator

(only one Jack KENDALL in entire E/R)
1924 VIC Electoral Roll – Flinders – Packenham
KENDALL Ada, Gembrook, home duties
KENDALL Jack, Gembrook, timber worker

(only one Dorothy May KENDALL in entire E/R)
1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Hume – Wagga Wagga
KENDALL Dorothy May, 225 Kincaid street, home duties
KENDALL Florence Ada, 225 Kincaid street, home duties
KENDALL Francis Leslie, 225 Kincaid street, labourer
KENDALL John Henry, 225 Kincaid street, labourer

I had a look at VIC marriages and couldn't find a Roy BARRACLOUGH married to a Sylvia. Strange hey!

No sign of Fred jnr after 1925 or death

Albert Herbert/Albert Henry variants, perhaps not listed in 1936 because he died same year?

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. I had bits and pieces from some early ER but I didn't tell you fully what I already had.

Are you able to check marriages in SA? I have the death of two John Askham and the birth of one and three spouse :confused:

Surname : BARRACLOUGH
Given Names : John A
Index Year : 1916
Father : John A
Mother : Nellie M
Place : CHATSWOOD
Registration Year : 1916
Registration Number : 18678
(NSW Federation Index 1889-1918)

Service Record
Name BARRACLOUGH, JOHN ASKHAM
Service Royal Australian Air Force
Service Number 265137
Date of Birth 29 Mar 1916
Place of Birth SYDNEY, NSW
Date of Enlistment 19 May 1941
Locality on Enlistment Unknown
Place of Enlistment CAMDEN
Next of Kin MARGARET
Date of Discharge 24 Aug 1945
Rank Flight Lieutenant
Posting at Discharge 7 COMMUNICATIONS UNIT
WW2 Honours and Gallantry None for display
Prisoner of War No

This one married Margaret Patricia HODGSON in Woollahra.

I have these two deaths:

BARRACLOUGH John Askham Death notice 03SEP2008 Death Manly Daily 10SEP2008

BARRACLOUGH John Askham Death notice 11SEP1990 Death at Port Willunga, S.A. SMH 14SEP1990
BARRACLOUGH, John Askham, - September 11, 1990, Port Willunga, S.A., dearly loved by his wife Judy-Anne, his father John (deceased), his mother Bib, his daughters Victoria (deceased), Tracy and Christian...

And this marriage and a marriage possibly in SA for 'Judy-Anne':

16382/1957 BARRACLOUGH JOHN ASKHAM JAMIESON JOY LOUISE SYDNEY

'His mother Bib' is the bit that is of no help to me so far.

The parents of the John Askham born 1916 in Chatswood are John Askham King and Nellie May (CLARK).

What I really need is a living relative to help me sort this out. Perhaps I should talk to myself... :2fun:

Regards,

Dave

Hi Dave

You know they reckon the first sign of madness is talking to yourself:D :D

I think I will email A......Y and ask the question if there are any missing E/R's.

Vere May JOHNSTONE (searched all variants and interstate and still can't find her in 1930/36).

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Watson - Kensington
BARRACLOUGH Ina Hansard, 14 Day avenue, home duties
BARRACLOUGH Norman Joseph, 14 Day avenue, manager

Still no luck finding Harry Askham BARRACLOUGH in 1936, where the bloomin heck is he?, found his future wife.

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Parramatta – Ryde West
MUDFORD Grace Eleanor, 520 Blaxland road, Eastwood, clerk

(South Australia Marriages only go up to 1937).

Have you googled to see if anyone else is researching this line. I can understand if not:D :D

cheers

Hello crankypants,

Ok, what's the 2nd sign? :D :D

Thanks for looking. I have nothing on Harold at all apart from the marriage reg. I'm wondering about the 1924 Melbourne Ports and the Vere in New England in 1930. I can only find the one marriage of a Vere to a JOHNSTONE and no birth of one in NSW to 1908. No middle name and I don't know what she would be doing in New England.

So no marriage in SA to 1937 for a John (Askham) and a Judy-Anne?

When Harry enlisted in 1942 he was living with Grace in Eastwood so I think they remained in the area.


Yes, but they are researching the other BARRACLOUGH family that had stations along the Darling River. Linda is one of that family who has done a lot of research.

Regards,

Dave

1931 VIC Bridget BARRACLOUGH ( no other Barraclough's listed with her) Unable to search by address, I which it was possible, would be a bonus. Perhaps a married daughter living in Vic.

I Googled "Hadleigh Hall Kensington Road South yarra" and found a photo of Hadleigh Hall.

Hello crankypants,

Thank you very much. A bit curious. Bridget was sometimes listed as Bertha. I wonder why she would be in Melbourne at that address with no other members of the BARRACLOUGH family, unless she was with members of her (KING) family. It does not state that the KING family owned it though.

She died one year later:

Surname : BARRACLOUGH
Given Names : Bertha
Father : Isaac KING
Mother : Bridt O DONNELL
Death Place : S YARRA
Age : 69
Age Code :
Year : 1932
Reg Number : 3475
Event : D


Ok, another possibility is that it was a nursing home ??

I think we are almost done with this revision of BARRACLOUGH.

Thanks.

Dave

Hello crankypants,

We should be able to find more after the E/R update to 1954.

John Askham King BARRACLOUGH b. 1889 Leichhardt d. 1950 Paddington

married 1915 Sydney

Nellie May CLARK b. 1894 Leichhardt d. ?

They are together in 1930 E/R but don't appear to be in 1936:

1936 N.S.W Electoral Roll – Wentworth – Bellevue Hill
BARRACLOUGH John Askham, 592 New South Head road, optician


Please see what you can find. Thanks.

Regards,

Dave
