In 1851 they were living at The Round House in Havering, but by 1861 had moved to 8 Grand Parade, Hastings in Sussex.

 

They moved again to Quarry Cottage – with its own private swimming pool – on West Hill, St Leonards, Sussex .before 1871.

 

On 14th November, 1872 William died and the family returned to Havering-atte-Bower before 1881.

 

Ann lived a peripatetic life on her own private means being at The Hall, Havering-atte-Bower in 1881;

The Grange on Brockfield Road in Havering in 1891;

3 Princess Terrace, Heene, Worthing in Sussex in 1901 and she returned, finally, to the Hall at Havering before 1911.

It is worthwhile digressing a little and taking a look at William Pemberton Barnes, born in 1819 at Wood End Farm, Beauchamp Roding, Essex.

 

He was the son of Joseph and Honour Pemberton, both of whom were born around 1791.

 

He had six siblings all of whom were born at Beauchamp Roothing: Joseph – 1814; Lydia – 1816; Sarah – 1817; Lucy – 1819; George – 1829 and Henry – 1831.

 

In 1841 William, at the age of 20, is simply described as a farmer at Wood End Farm.

 

Ten years later he is aged 30, married and living at The Round House, Havering-atte-Bower with a description of being a House and Land Proprietor.

 

So, if you had been asking the question, this is where much of the wealth of Thomas Barnes came to after the death of John Barnes in the lunatic asylum. 

 

But, as can be seen from AnnÕs probate details above where she left £22.000 plus and WilliamÕs seen below:

 

 

 

only some £32000 is accounted for so we have to look elsewhere for the remainder.

Ernest Pemberton Barnes                      Born 1855

 

Amy Clara Pemberton Barnes                Born 1857

This cutting from the Essex Standard of 22nd April 1859 is indicative of another son.

 

Percy Pemberton Barnes                       Born 1860

 

Sydney Willie Pemberton Barnes           Born 1862   

                                                        Died 25th April 1918

 

This cutting is taken from the London Standard of 6th July, 1865 and, notwithstanding the misspelling, is indicative of another daughter

 

Lilla Pemberton Barnes                         Born 1866                                                                                      Died 6th November 1896

 

Reginald Pemberton Barnes                   Born 1867                                                                                      Died  23rd January 1868
