Looking for Barron family from UK via Nowra, Australia
My name is David Barron and I have recently started tracing my family tree. I live near Brisbane in Queensland, Australia with my wife, (living) Henry, and three children. Being new to this and very inexperienced I am open to any suggestions or help that any body can give me on family tree or web page
With help from family members we have traced a great deal of information on some branches Archdall, Sallaway, Herron and Nicol but still have very little on the Barron side.
Milton (Bluey) Lewis Barron was born in Nowra, NSW, Australia in 1914 and died in Muttaburra Qld, Australia in 1969. He married Lillian Hannah Herron in Nowra in 1936 and had two son Maxwell Barron b.1937 Nowra-d.2002 Deception Bay, Qld and (Living) Barron (my father) but he separated and moved to Muttaburra, Qld with Pat and had three more children. His occupation was a mechanic.
Milton's (Bluey) parents were Louis Myrtle (Bert) Barron and Eleanor Thompson who we think was an Irish immigrant. They may have ran a mission of sorts with aboriginal children in the Nowra region and their may have been another son who was institutionalized with a mental condition. Bert was one of 15 children from William Barron and Hannah Wooden.
I do know that Williams parents were James Barron and Mary ? who had 3 boys and 1 girl (James, William, Walter and Emma) but that is where the info runs dry. It appears that there were a few James Barrons with most being convicts transported from the UK.
Any assistance in tracing family any further would be greatly appreciated.
