     Margaret Wigzell was baptized on 18 July 1688 at Kemsing, Kent, England.1 She was the daughter of William Wigzell and Elizabeth (?)
Margaret Wigzell married Richard Barber, son of Thomas Barber alias Nynne and Mary Rootes, on 18 November 1712 at Kemsing, Kent, England.2,1
Margaret was 24 years old when she married Richard Barber (who was about 39 years). Ten years later she was a widow with five children, the eldest only 9 years old.
Margaret Wigzell witnessed the burial of Richard Barber on 2 June 1722 at Tonbridge, Kent, England; aged about 50 years.3
The Tonbridge Overseers of the Poor rate assessment of 31 May 1728 shows that Widow Barber (Margaret) was still occupying the property (farm) in Hilden (near Tonbridge) that they had occupied since at least 1713. By 19 June 1730 she had moved to Foxbush and Reeds Land, previously held by William Webb. Their rental value was 23 pounds per years so they were probably farms or farming lands. These properties were held by Margaret until at least 1746, but were no longer in her name in 1751, when Edward London is listed as the new owner of Foxbush and Richard Children may have taken over all of Reeds.
It is interesting to note that in the 1749 will of Thomas Barber, his nephew Richard Barber "of Foxbush" is left 10 pounds, but it does not mention the widow Margaret. The will was made on 16 May 1749, suggesting that Margaret may have died in the period 1746-1749.
Foxbush is very close to where the widow Mary Barber would have lived in Philpots Lane between 1692 and 1732. The move to Foxbush coincides with the transfer of Mary Barber's house to Thomas Barber in 1730, and it is interesting to speculate that previously, Margaret and her family had lived with Mary Barber and farmed the surrounding lands (Mardens?) which they had farmed since at least 1713. It is likely that Margaret then lived with her son Richard at Foxbush. Margaret's brother-in-law Thomas Barber never married and may have played a role in getting Margaret and Richard set up at Foxbush and Reeds (possibly a payment was made to them for the transfer of Mary Barber's house to Thomas). If he had helped to set this up to be Richard's inheritance (via his mother Margaret) it would explain why Richard received only 10 pounds in his uncle's will, while his brother Thomas, who was in business as a malster with his uncle, received all of his uncle's property.4
There is a burial of a Margaret Barber on 14 Jan 1768 at Tonbridge. At this stage it is not known if this is for the widow Margaret Barber, or her unmarried daughter. Thomas Barber's will made in 1749 indicates that the daughter was unmarried at that time.
