Does the baptism record say Joseph Samuel was born in Middlesex?

I ask because a baptism record for his sister Susannah has born Bedford and baptised in Middlesex.

Can that be shown to be correct?

Baptisms
St George in the East, Middlesex.
11 Aug 1816 (born 29 Dec 1814) Susannah Eliza Barnes dau of Joseph and Elizabeth, servant.
Born in the parish of Keysoe in the county of Bedford.

Since i cant find Joseph i thought i would trace John and see if Joseph's arrival can be found that way.

Empire (Sydney, NSW : 1850 - 1875)
Friday 11 September 1863

DEATHS.

BARNES.—On the 30th August, shot by bushrangers, near Wallenbeen station, Mr. John Barnes, of Murrumburrah, late of Sydney and Melbourne, and formerly of 111, Wood- street, Cheapside, London, aged 51 years.

Yes, that's the John in my tree.

I have no proof yet that it is the same John on the 'Abbotsford' in 1840.

That info came from another researcher of the family.

I could be wrong but for now im not convinced the Abbotsford and Jane are the right arrivals for the boys. I'll see if i can find anything else to confirm or elminate them ships.

Thanks gibbo. :)

It has always been a difficult family right from the baptisms or lack of them in Bedfordshire and Middlesex, then arrivals and on to death reg.

Thanks for looking, gibbo.

It seems the State Records have some films that are not on-line and not even at the State Library. They no longer have a 'Reading Room' in Sydney. It's way out in an outer suburb.
