FatherRobert Barber b. 6 Jul 1802, d. 4 Feb 1867
MotherJane Holden b. 17 Oct 1802, d. 28 Oct 1882
     John Barber was born on 10 February 1842 at 21 Gardner St, Brighton, Sussex, England; born at 10 minutes before 6 o'clock in the morning.1 He was the son of Robert Barber and Jane Holden.
John Barber was baptized on 30 October 1842 at St Peter's Church, Brighton, Sussex, England, abode: Gardiner St.2
John was cabinetmaker/carpenter journeyman all his life. The word 'journeyman' indicates that he was a qualified tradesman but employed by someone else.
On 15 May 1865 John Barber lived at 23 Kensington Gardens, Brighton, Sussex, England, (his parents address.)3
John Barber married Susannah Victoria White, daughter of William White and Mary Wickens, on 15 May 1865 at The Register Office, Brighton, Sussex, England.3
They had a large family of nine children between 1865 and 1886. In 1876 and 1881 the family lived at 37 Albion St, Brighton. In 1891 they lived at 78 Lincoln St, Brighton and remained there until at least 1903 when Susannah died.4,5,6
In the 1881 census they had a visitor Jane Ladd 59 yrs (widow, chairwoman) staying with them. Jane Ladd is Susannah Victoria Barber's sister. Susanna lived with Jane and her husband William after her parents died and before she was married.4
John Barber witnessed the marriage of William Barber and Ada Morris on 9 November 1895 at Register Office, Brighton, Sussex, England.7
The 1901 census shows that the children Minnie aged 22 years, James aged 20 years and John aged 18 years were still living at home with them.8
Susannah's death in 1903 would have caused some disruption in the family and John appears to have re-married a few years later in about 1906. The 1911 census shows him at age 68 years living with 45 year old Lottie at 18 Dinapore St, Brighton and states that they have been married for 5 years. He was still working as a carpenter at that time.
John Barber married Lottie (?) circa 1906 at Brighton, Sussex, England.9
Although they are stated as married in the 1911 census the marriage record has not been found. It is possible that they never married.
John Barber was a general carpenter on 2 April 1911.10
On 2 April 1911 John Barber and Lottie (?) lived at 18 Dinapore St, Brighton, Sussex, England.10
John Barber died on 4 February 1925 at 18 Dinapore St, Brighton, Sussex, England, at age 82. He died of senile decay and myocardial degeneration.11

FatherJohn Barber b. 10 Feb 1842, d. 4 Feb 1925
MotherSusannah Victoria White b. 19 Jan 1842, d. 21 Nov 1903
     John Barber was born on 18 May 1883 at Brighton, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of John Barber and Susannah Victoria White.
John Barber was a labourer in a small arms factory on 31 March 1901.2
On 2 April 1911 John Barber lived at Royal German Spa, Brighton, Sussex, England, single, living with his brother Robert John Barber and wife.3
John Barber was a labourer at a motor works on 2 April 1911.3
John Barber married Alice Teague, daughter of Charles Henry Teague and Ellen Bassett, in 1918 at Brighton, Sussex, England.4
John Barber was a labourer, Works Dept, Brighton Corporation on 29 September 1939.1
On 29 September 1939 John Barber and Alice Teague lived at 17 Glynde Road, Brighton, Sussex, England.1
John's grandson, John Barber, writes:
Alice was in service with a lady of private means in Hove before marrying John. Alice’s father Charles Henry Teague was an asthmatic, and came to Brighton for ‘the air’, bringing his children with him. The Teagues hail from the village of Creed in Cornwall, between Grampound and Tregony, and generations are buried in the churchyard and surrounding settlements. Alice’s mother was a Bassett, and fortunately there is a one-name study of the Basset side which has traced the family back several centuries.
After their marriage, John and Alice moved to St Luke’s Road in the Queen’s Park area of Brighton, and later to 14 Glynde Road. John Barber had a variety of jobs during his lifetime. He was by all accounts a very loveable man and a committed Christian (he was a Sunday-school teacher), but found it difficult to hold on to money and therefore never accumulated much by way of savings. Although John was married at the old parish church of St Nicholas, at some point he became a member of the religious sect that was known as the Oxford Movement. Brighton at this time was a noted centre of high church worship, and there were several Oxford Movement churches in the town, the most dramatic of which was (and is) St Bartholomew’s. John had a variety of jobs – the only ones known are crane driver at Newhaven harbour (presumably in WW1), transport worker and cloakroom attendant.5

John Barber died in 1946 at Brighton General Hospital, Brighton, Sussex, England. He died of cancer age 63 yrs.6
Alice continued to live at Glynde Rd for many years after her husband died, and in 1964 her son Fred found her a flat at 8 Johnson Bank, Wellington Road, Brighton. She lived here until her death from heart failure in 1973.

John Barber

b. 13 April 1651
FatherJohn Barber alias Nynne b. 13 Feb 1602, d. 1667
MotherMary (?) d. 1662
     John Barber was baptized on 13 April 1651 at Rotherfield, Sussex, England, Mother's name not given.1 He was the son of John Barber alias Nynne and Mary (?)
Certificate of Conviction DYK/1047 - 10 Mar 1677 (East Sussex Record Office): Records that Isaac Ford of Frant, labourer, came before William Dyke, Justice of the Peace, and declared that on 19 Feb 1677 John Barber hunted does in Eridge Park, belonging to George, [12th] Baron Abergavenny. John Barber confessed. William Dyke sent a warrant to the Constable of Rotherfield hundred to levy £20 from his goods, which were insufficient for distress. John Barber was committed to the House of Correction for 6 months hard labour.
This could be:
John Barber bap. 1651 Rotherfield, son of John and Mary (would have been age 26).
John Barber bap. 1652 Ticehurst, son of Thomas and Joan (would have been age 25).
John Barber bap. 1663 Ticehurst (would have been age 14).
Given that it occurred in Frant I feel that it is more likely to be John son of John and Mary who we know lived in Frant.
John Barber married Mary Fry on 22 April 1695 at Withyham, Sussex, England.2
On 25 May 1696, a John Barber was a juror in a coroners inquest in Frant. Not sure if this is the same John Barber though - needs more investigation.3
This marriage and children is speculation. Baptisms for Withyham only start at 1700 but there are no Barbers. I am not sure I have the right John Barber either. It could be the John Barber bap. 30 May 1663 at Ticehurst, son of William Barber, or the John Barber bap. 14 Nov 1652 at Ticehurst, son of Thomas Barber (who was buried in Rotherfield 1663). More research required.

FatherWalter Barber b. c 1852, d. 27 Oct 1886
MotherMarian Fleming b. c 1856, d. 22 Jun 1933
     John Walter Barber was born in 1881 at Deptford, Kent, England.1 He was the son of Walter Barber and Marian Fleming.
On 31 March 1901 John Walter Barber lived at 205 Brockley Road, Deptford, Kent, England.2
John Walter Barber was a commercial clerk on 31 March 1901.2
On 2 April 1911 John Walter Barber lived at 205 Brockley Road, Deptford, Kent, England.3
In the 1911 census John Walter Barber's widowed mother Marian has living with her an 8 year old grandson John Walter Thacker, born Stoke Newington, Middlesex, believed to be the illegitimate son of John Walter Barber and Jessie Thacker. The father's name is not given on the birth certificate. The 1901 census is revealing in that it shows Jessie Thacker living next door to the Barbers at 207 Brockley Road, Deptford. Living with the Barbers is a 79 year old aunt Eliza J Buck, sister to Marian Barber's mother, Catherine (nee Buck). The family living next door at 207 Brockley Road is headed by Catherine's nephew William H Buck (her brother William's son), a widower aged 39 years and Jessie Thacker is recorded as being his cousin (Catherine's brother William married a Thacker). So the connection between John Walter Barber and Jessie Thacker is through marriage, not by blood.
The 1930 United States Federal Census for Manhattan, New York, has Jack Dring staying with the family of Herbert Frederic Barber and family, and his relationship to Herbert is stated as brother-in-law. John (Jack) Dring is the husband of Jessie Thacker's sister. This suggests that John Walter Barber and Jessie Thacker married, especially as Herbert named one of his daughters Jessie.4,5
John Walter Barber died on 23 October 1956 at The Stanhope Arms, Church Road, Brasted, Westerham, Kent, England. "age 75 years", (not confirmed.)6,7
His estate was probated on 7 December 1956 at Exeter, Devon, England, Effects: £3505 1s 2d.7

Leslie Robert William Barber
     Leslie Robert William Barber was born on 18 September 1897 at 3 Marlborough St, Brighton, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of William Barber and Ada Morris.
Leslie lived with his parents at 40 Wood St, Brighton in 1907, and later at 36 Tillstone St.
Leslie Robert William Barber was is said to have served an apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker (a shop in Gardiner St) although his wife May, aged 91 years, could not remember this. Before WW1 he worked at Potter's in Kensington Gardens, Brighton as a furniture salesman. circa 1914.
During WW1 he served as a Medic with the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC) at the 2nd Eastern General Hospital in Brighton (service no. 500200). This service no. falls into the series of RAMC Territorial Force regimental numbers allocated in 1917 to the 2nd Eastern General Hospital, Brighton, Sussex. He is unlikely to have served abroad and as a result does not appear to have been entitled to any campaign medals. The 2nd Eastern General Hospital was located at Portland Road, Hove (Brighton), and was a school originally.2
Leslie Robert William Barber married Victoria May Griffiths, daughter of Charles Richard Griffiths and Ann Elizabeth Godden, on 9 October 1918 at Register Office, Brighton, Sussex, England.3
He gave his occupation as a Corporal RAMC/Furniture Salesman on the marriage certificate. He would have been serving with the Royal Army Medical Corps at the 2nd Eastern General Hospital in Brighton at the time but before the war was a furniture salesman. Victoria May was a letter carrier with the post office (GPO).
Leslie Robert William Barber was a clerk in a motor garage in 1920.
Sometime after the war Leslie's mother bought a barrow for him to use to sell fruit and it would appear that he did this up until WW2. He would buy fruit from the allotments and sell them off the barrow at the corner of Western Rd & Crown St, Brighton. According to May they had quite a good trade. Leslie operated the barrow with the help of his mother Ada while his father William and an 'Uncle' Bill (who lived with William and Ada) operated another across the road on the corner of Western Rd and Castle St. 'Uncle' Bill was a workmate of William Barber ("he won a gold medal at billiards").
In 1925 Leslie Robert William Barber and Victoria May Griffiths lived at 6 Elder St, Brighton, Sussex, England.
Circa 1930 Victoria May and Leslie Barber moved to 237 Freshfield Road in Brighton.
Leslie Robert William Barber was a fruit stall holder (formerly) and now a full-time RR (ARP?) Warden on 29 September 1939.4
On 29 September 1939 Leslie Robert William Barber and Victoria May Griffiths lived at 237 Freshfield Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England.4
During WW2 Leslie was an air raid warden in the ARP (Air Raid Precautions), an organisation dedicated to the protection of civilians from the danger of air raids. The lawn in front of his house at 237 Freshfield Rd was dug up as an air raid shelter. He could not get any fruit supplies during WW2 for his fruit barrow so worked as a porter at the Royal Sussex County Hospital after the war (his daughter Hazel also worked there later as a nurse). He retired from this position.
Leslie and May both received the Defence Medal after WW2.
From about 1970 Victoria May and Leslie lived at 255 Freshfield Road.
They had three children – Hazel May, Ronald Leslie and Douglas Robert (Bob).
Hazel was a nurse at the Royal Sussex County Hospital. She never married and died in 1975 of diabetes but also had tuberculosis.
Bob also never married. He lived with his parents all his life and was left living alone at 255 Freshfield Road when his mother could no longer look after herself and went to live at St Anne’s Rest Home. He lived there until he died in 1995. Bob was a bus conductor then later a cashier with the Brighton Borough Transport bus company for most of his life, but he did also serve in WW2. One document shows he was a Trooper with the 17th/21st Lancers (service no. 7958232) from June 1945 to August 1946.
Leslie Robert William Barber was a hospital night porter (retired) in 1976.5
