Barnes of Carcoar and Mountain Run NSW Australia

Journal by jforjude

I am researching the family of Thomas Barnes and Catherine Slater. The children of this union for which I cannot find a marriage certificate are sometimes registered in either Barnes or Slater and sometimes both. Thomas Barnes is often listed as living at Mountain Run which is near Tuena and Trunkey Creek in New South Wales. Thomas place of birth on the children's birth certificates is Wiltshire England. Catherine had been married prior to her association with Thomas to James Kirby and had two sons named James and Robert. The children of Thomas and Catherine are Isobella, Teresa, George, Catherine, Mary, Thomas, Richard, Alice and Rose. Anyone with any knowledge of this family and their ancestors and decendants and are willing to share I am the decedent of Catherine Barnes and James Rosebottom.

Hi, I have been researching this line too. My husbands grandmother is Evaline Myrtle Betty Bell, was Beenie, her mother was Evaline Grace Rosebottom and her mother was Catherine Barnes. How have you gone with proving the marriage of Thomas and Catherine. Do you know if Catherine was an Aboriginal? My husbands Grandmother was to know for sure.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Sally Bell

I am a descendent of Catherine Slater and her daughter Rose Barnes. I have been plodding away for 2 a few years now, trying to gather anything at all about the families that lived firstly in "the Sands" (whatever "the Sands" actually refers to) and then "Golden Gully". I have some memories of Golden Gully as well as photos of many of the people who lived there, taken by my grandmother, who was a daughter of Rose Barnes. Both she, and then my mother, frequently visited Alice Lynch (born Alice Slater, but married to Ted Lynch as Alice Barnes)who lived at Golden Gully until the early 1960s.
I continue plodding away - every little bit I learn helps me to understand better what I consider my true roots to be. If there is anyone who interested in sharing information, I am of course very keen to keep learning.

I am a descendant of Thomas Barnes and Catherine Slater. My Great Grandmother was Catherine Rosebottom the daughter of James and Catherine nee Barnes. I have also the same story as Janilye above but my grand mother also had the following information: Thomas Slater was born Aldbourne Wiltshire England in 1832. He married Anne Owens whos mother was half aboriginal and her father was scottish. Anne and Thomas had a daughter Catherine. When Catherine was 13 there was an uprising with the aboriginals and Catherine was taken, what became of the rest of the family is unknown. Catherine spent 2 years with the aboriginal tribe before being rescued by her uncle who she lived with until she married James Kirby.They had 3 childres Robert, James and a still born son.James never married.Robert married Mary Ann Jones and their children are as follows: Robert James married Mary ???, Clara married Henry Bourke,Jane married Jack Radburn, Olive married ???? Leabeater, Isabell married Walter Carrrol. I did find a marriage for a Thomas Slater and Anne Owen/s in 1830 but there is no birth for a Catherine. I am still not sure how accurate this information is.

Kyken121Te Thomas Slater b1832 could not have been Catherine's father if she was born c1835. The only Thomas Slater/Anne Owens on BDM were married in 1830 no mention of Catherine. Also corrections to Robert Barnes Kirby's family info.

Robert B. Kirby married Mary Angelina Fuge, Clara May married Henry Burke, Jane married Jack Radburn, Olive Miriam married ? Leabeater, Isabel married Walter Carroll, Thomas Edward married Edith Alice ?. James William died 1916. I am the gggrandaughter of Catherine and James Kirby.(Clara & Henry Burke)
If Catherine was born on the banks of the Castlereagh it is a long way from the Argyle County.A cousin from the Radburn family recounted a story of a piccanniny being found and taken to live with her uncle. (the Kirby's worked on a large property owned by the McKenzie family and it was a McKenzie who told this story)

I am alan barnes, great grandson of thomas barnes and catherine slater, grandson of thomas barnes and rose jones. my father is percival john barnes ( known as jack) , twin of of Eva. Jack looks aboriginal in all black and white photos, and has caused comments and conversations about his aboriginal histroy that I have limited knowledge. I have researched the barnes line and have found interesting what was said. It confirms what I know, but unfortunately have nothing to add at this syage. Wanting to know more to add to my information, and learn more of my identity. have fostered child Isobella. surprised to see this name with same unusual spelling her in previous posts. happy to share info to gather our family history. hoping for contact.
