David Barron's family research so far

My name is David Barron and I live near Brisbane in Queensland, Australia with my wife and three children. I am very interested in tracing my family tree and would appreciate any information, suggestions or help on family tree or websites. If I can assist you in any way with information please contact me. Daves Genealogy Web - dgenweb.com


With help from family members we have traced a great deal of information on some branches - Archdall, Barron, Downey, Sallaway, Herron and Nicol. I am still researching and therefore always wanting more information.

This is some of the information I have on my Barron Family


James & Mary

James Barron and Mary ( ? ) had William in 1843 in the Shoalhaven Area NSW, Australia. James and Mary may have had other children (James 1842, Walter 1846 and Emma 1851) but I have not confirmed at this stage.

Was James a convict and if so which one was he? There were -

James Barron convicted at - Northampton (7years) and transported on the Norfolk 27 Oct 1836

James Barron convicted at Warwick (14years) and transported on the Lord Melville 11 Jan 1830

Or is there more to choose from?

What about Mary? (pardon the pun) the only Permission to Marry that I know about at this stage is for James Barron of the Norfolk and that was to Mary Foot aged 31yrs per Planter2 -life.





William Barron & Hannah Wooden

William Barron married Hannah Wooden in Shoalhaven in 1865 and lived in Burrier, NSW and had 15 children. They were educated at Burrier school which was adjacent to their home, where the old post office is still standing.

William and Hannah's Family -

Mary Jane b 1866 married George Green,

Anne Elizabeth b 1868 married John Albert Hanson,

William Alfred b 1869,

James Benjamin (Jim) b 1871 married Jane Inga Minnikin,

Louisa Phyllis b 1872 married James Grady,

Walter Henry b 1874 d 1875,

John Henry (Jack) b 1875,

Sarah Sands b 1876,

Herbert Walter b 1877 married Barbara Jane Abernathy,

Georgina b 1879 married Edward Tritton,

Charles Arthur b 1880 married Ada Keiza Watts,

Ethel Flora Hannah b 1882 married Hamilton Culgin,

Louis Myrtle (Bert) b 1884 married Eleanor Thompson, (My Great Grandfather)

Joseph Ernest b 1885,

Beatrice Janet b 1888 married George James MacFarlane,





Louis Myrtle (Bert) Barron & Eleanor Thompson

As far as I know they only had one child being Milton Lewis (Bluey) Barron born in Nowra, NSW, Australia in 1914 and dying 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). He separated from Lillian and moved to Muttaburra, Qld and had three more children to second wife. His occupation was a mechanic.





ANNE ELIZABETH BARRON & JOHN ALBERT HANSON

Second child of William & Hannah b 18/11/1868 in Burrier NSW. I am now in contact with this branch of the family and hopefully some more information will become available including some stories about Grassy Gully Gold mine, the family fued, the naming of places in the Shoalhaven Area after our family (Hanson Hill, Mount Barron, Barron Flats etc) and I even hear a whisper about Ned Kelly.



JAMES BENJAMIN (JIM) BARRON & JANE INGA MINNIKIN

Fourth child of William & Hannah b 18/2/1871 in Burrier, NSW and died 1952. After leaving school he went to Junee to work as a stockman and eventually became head drover. On his return to Burrier he found gold in the Grassy Gully (I am yet to find out all the details on this or the family feud that followed). From accounts that I have read so far, he was a great horseman and extremely active, keen on jumping, running and boxing, as well as breaking in horses.

I am now in contact with someone from the Minnikin side who may be able to shed some more light.



JOHN HENRY (JACK) BARRON

Seventh child of William & Hannah, born 2/5/1874. He lived in Nowra and Burrier till he had problems with the law. He had to face trial on perjury so he skipped away to North Queensland where he became a stagecoach driver of great renown. It was said he was a well-set-up man with a fiery temper, enormous strength and great horsemanship.

Jack apparently married a full blooded aboriginal lady in St Lawrence, Qld and had 3 children - Topsy Francis, Stanley and Percy.

He was ultimately shot at point blank range by a drink crazed man at Bowen River Hotel.



Any assistance in tracing family any further would be greatly appreciated. contact me.

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.

BARRON

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.

Looking for James Barron

William Barron (B.1843-D.1920) married Hannah Wooden (B.1846-D1920) and had 15 children. I have been given a lot of information from now til then.

I have copy of William's birth cert showing his parents are James Barron and Mary ?. Also found on NSW BMD site births for same James and Mary (I think)James1842, William1843, Walter1846, Emma1851. It looks like the right family as all born in the right time frame and same area.

More research will be done on that information, I am ordering some Birth Cert as we speak.

My next hurdle seems to be Williams parents. I have received bits and pieces of info which points to the fact that James was a convict transported from the UK but off all the James Barrons I have found the seem to be to OLD at time of transportation to have had the prior mentioned children for example - tspt in 1830 at 30yo would make James 42yo at 1st born and 46yo at last. Is that to old for the time with the hardship of being convict and then colonial Australia?

Hoping someone maybe has traced same family, fingers crossed, hope to hear any helpfull suggestions
