FatherSilas Morris b. 9 Jan 1849, d. 11 Apr 1912
MotherMartha Jeffery b. 31 Dec 1839, d. 23 Jan 1922
Ada Morris
     Ada Morris was born on 27 August 1874 at Little Horsted, Sussex, England.1 She was the daughter of Silas Morris and Martha Jeffery.
Ada Morris was baptized on 11 October 1874 at Little Horsted, Sussex, England.
Ada worked in domestic service before getting married. In the 1891 census she was a servant, age 17 yrs, working at 11 Chapel Place, Tunbridge Wells for Henry and Ann Slatter (Henry was a pianoforte dealer). At some stage she moved to Brighton and while working in service there met her future husband William Barber.2
William wrote many letters while courting his future wife Ada Morris as she was working in service and had difficulty getting time off. Some of these letters were kept by Ada and have survived. They were given to Ron and Freda Barber after Ada's death.
In these letters dated 1894, William is 20 years old and living at 78 Lincoln St in Brighton (with his parents and siblings according to the 1891 census) while Ada is 19 years old and working in domestic service. She may have been living and working at 52 Coleman Street; just one street away, as this was her address at the time of her marriage in 1895. Ada obviously has difficulty getting time off work to see William and it appears that Thursday is the only day that they can see each other for any length of time.
They share a common interest in reading books and the letters frequently mention William taking books to Ada. One of the stories that he says he enjoyed was "The Silver King" which was a highly successful play by Henry Arthur Jones and Henry Herman, published in 1882.
In the last letter William is very excited at being able to invite Ada to tea. His sister in law (would have to be Elizabeth Love Morley who married Robert John Barber in 1887) has taken a liking to Ada and has offered the invitation. Ada has not yet met William's mother. William thanks Ada for the boots that she has sent him.
Ada's residence at time of marriage in 1895 was 52 Coleman St, Brighton. Living at this address for the 1881 Census were James Jupp aged 61, carpenter, born Lambeth, Surrey and Charlotte Jupp aged 62 born Little Horsted. Charlotte Jupp's birthplace is the same as Ada's so there could be a connection.
Ada Morris married William Barber, son of John Barber and Susannah Victoria White, on 9 November 1895 at Register Office, Brighton, Sussex, England.3
Their first child was a stillborn male. Douglas Robert (Bob) Barber said he was strangled by his umbilical cord during birth. Their son Leslie Robert William Barber was born on 18 September 1897. They were living at 3 Marlborough Street in Brighton and William's occupation was a decorator's porter. They had no more children after Leslie.4
On 31 March 1901 Ada Morris and William Barber lived at 46 Windsor St, Brighton, Sussex, England, as boarders with their 3 year old son Leslie.5
In 1907 Ada Morris and William Barber lived at 40 Wood St, Brighton, Sussex, England.
In 1911 Ada Morris and William Barber lived at 36 Tillstone St, Brighton, Sussex, England, and lived here for the rest of their lives.6
Ada Morris witnessed the death of Silas Morris on 11 April 1912 at Throat & Ear Hospital, Brighton, Sussex, England; He died of enlarged cervical glands (probably malignant) 3 months, marasmus, cardiac failure.7
Ada Morris witnessed the marriage of Leslie Robert William Barber and Victoria May Griffiths on 9 October 1918 at Register Office, Brighton, Sussex, England.8
William and Ada remained very close to Leslie, living only a short distance away. Between WW1 and WW2 they both operated a fruit barrow in Brighton. Ada had bought a fruit barrow for Leslie as it was hard to get work after WW1 and she helped him run this on the corner of Western Rd and Crown St while William and "Uncle" Bill operated another barrow just across the road. This "Uncle" Bill was really a workmate of William who lived with William and Ada for some time.
Ada Morris was a fruitstall holder and housewife on 29 September 1939.9
Ada is reported to have been a very independent and capable person who was good at cooking and crafts. She was a small person being less than 5 feet tall. She was raised in the country (Little Horsted and Uckfield) and always had strong ties to her family. Many family heirlooms were passed down to the family by her. She inherited many of her mother's belongings including her wedding ring, the Ben Jeffery letters sent by her mother’s brother from New Zealand, and her grandmother Harriet Jeffery’s bible. The bible was given to Ada when she was 12 years old (1886) probably by her mother Martha, a few years after her grandmother Harriet died in 1883. The bible was inscribed "From the Reverend Augustus W. Warde to Harriet Jeffery, Christmas Day 1861. The Lord Bless Thee and Keep Thee". Augustus Warde was the vicar at the Little Horsted parish church.
Ada Morris witnessed the death of William Barber on 2 November 1952 at Brighton General Hospital, Brighton, Sussex, England; He died of fibroid myocardial degeneration, arterio sclerosis and diabetis mellitus. He was cremated.10
After William died in 1952 Ada continued to live at 36 Tillstone Street for a few more years and then moved to 237 Freshfield Road to live with her son's family.
Ada wrote this letter to Ron and Freda Barber (in Australia) when she was very old:
237 Freshfield Rd
Brighton

          My dear Ron & Freda
          and all. you asked me
          to write, but dears I am blind
          but think of you always

Ada Morris died on 25 May 1963 at St Francis Hospital, Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, at age 88. She died of broncho pneumonia and senility.11
