Ronald Leslie Barber

b. 9 June 1920, d. 14 June 1990
FatherLeslie Robert William Barber b. 18 Sep 1897, d. 19 Jul 1976
MotherVictoria May Griffiths b. 10 Jul 1897, d. 23 Mar 1990
Ron Barber in the Navy in WW2 c1941
     Ronald Leslie Barber was born on 9 June 1920 at 8 Old Shoreham Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England.1 He was the son of Leslie Robert William Barber and Victoria May Griffiths.
He attended St. Lukes School in Brighton. As a boy he was in the Boy's Brigade for a long time and this was held in a church in Islingword Rd.
Before 1930 Ronald Leslie Barber lived at 6 Elder St, Brighton, Sussex, England.
Circa 1930 Ronald Leslie Barber lived at 237 Freshfield Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England.
Ronald Leslie Barber was 14 years of age when he started work as a page boy at the Astoria cinema in Brighton. Ron had hopes of becoming a projectionist but this did not eventuate and instead did an apprenticeship as a book binder before joining the Navy in 1939 just before WW II. circa 1934.
He was on the destroyer "Wessex" when it was sunk off St Lessaire (on the French coast) by a bomb falling down its funnel. They were picked up by the Polish destroyer Vimiera which took them back to Dover. His arm was injured during this incident and he was invalided out of the Navy on 25.12.1942.
Ronald Leslie Barber was working at the Allen and West factory in Brighton making electrical equipment for submarines (ASDICS gear) - where he met Freda Taylor in 1942.
Ronald Leslie Barber married Freda Amy Taylor, daughter of Arthur George Taylor and Ada Winifred Middleton, on 9 May 1942 at St Andrew's, Moulsecoomb, Sussex, England.2
In 1943 Ronald Leslie Barber and Freda Amy Taylor lived at 21 Hartington Rd, Brighton, Sussex, England, moving there when Freda was expecting Tony and living there until Margaret was 3 to 4 years old.
Ronald Leslie Barber was in a job making metal scroll furniture where he learnt to weld circa 1945.
Between 1946 and 1950 Ron was a bus conductor with Brighton Borough Transport - he considered this the best job he ever had.
Circa 1949 Ronald Leslie Barber and Freda Amy Taylor lived at 18 The Ridgeway (now Ridge View), Coldean, Brighton, Sussex, England, This was their last residence before leaving for Australia.
Ronald Leslie Barber and Freda Amy Taylor emigrated on 11 May 1950 to Perth, Western Australia, Australia, departed Southampton on the ship Asturias, with son Tony age 6 yrs and daughter Margaret age 5 years, arriving Fremantle on Monday, 5 Jun 1950. They left England with about £60 (including £5 from Grandma Ada Barber) and their weekly wage in England had been four pounds/week. They first stayed with Freda's parents, Arthur and Ada Taylor, at 84 Egham Rd Victoria Park. Freda went with her mother to purchase the block of land at 87 Enfield St (the block immediately behind 84 Egham Rd). Arthur and Ada had paid 50 pounds for their block just 2 years ago and it was quite a shock to Freda that hers was to cost 150 pounds. Nevertheless, the real estate agent showed her the plans for the suburb and convinced Freda that the price was not going to get any cheaper.
On the 13 Jun 1950 Freda signed a contract to purchase the block of land at 87 Enfield St for 140 pounds from the Estates Development Company Pty Ltd. The subdivision was called St Andrew's Estate.
Ronald Leslie Barber was a 2nd class welder with Structural Engineering after July 1950.
House plans dated 20 Sep 1950 were drawn by John Treen, brother in law to Ron and Freda. The plans were approved on 29 Sep 1950.
On 9 Feb 1951 the certificate of title to 87 Enfield St (portion of Swan Location 35 and being Lot 207 on Plan 1030 - Vol 1118 Folio 203) is issued to Ron and Freda.
Mortgages were raised on the property on 16 Mar 1951, 17 Apr 1951, 6 July 1951 to raise funds to pay for the house as it was being built.
Ron worked at building the house with the help of his brother in law John Treen (John's first job as a registered builder). They first built a small wash house and Ron & Freda lived in this while the house was being built, cooking on a primus stove and bathing Tony and Margaret in the wash troughs. The house took 2 to 3 years to build although they started living in the wash house early 1951. Everyone in England had previously rented their house so this was a major achievement for them.
On 10 Apr 1957 Ron is awarded his "A" Grade Welder in Electric Arc Welding certificate by the Australian Welding Institute.
In 1960 Ron spent 3 months working in Western Australia's north west for Structural Engineering on the Talgarno rocket township (between Broome and Port Hedland). Structural Engineering had won the contract to provide steel and steel fabrication, etc. Talgarno was a township established in the target area for testing rockets from Woomera - "the Talgarno Prohibited Area had been proclaimed in December 1958 as the place into which the warheads would fall after their continent-spanning flights. Most of Talgarno was part of the Great Sandy Desert. Even this very remote area was not quite uninhabited, though the average population density was small indeed. Along the coastal strip were five station homesteads, about 200 Europeans in all. In one corner of the area was the Aboriginal mission of LaGrange, home to about 120 children with about the same number of adults in camps nearby. Finally, a small number of nomadic Aborigines were thought to be wandering the desert, although even the experts knew little definite about their movements. That was it, in an area bigger than France".
"The physical conditions of life at Talgarno were equally rough. They were feelingly expressed in a report by the sole security officer posted there: The climate at Talgarno in summer months (wet season) is enervating and oppressive, the flies intolerable, and the dust distracting. Temperatures have been known to rise to 114°F. There is no relief from these conditions in either tented or prefab accommodation. The local beach area is mainly silt and is subjected to disturbance by tides. Swimming is out of the question as the sea at Talgarno abounds in sharks and sea lice."3 He was confirmed on 19 April 1961 at St Peter's Church, Victoria Park, Western Australia, Australia.
On 20 Aug 1961 Ron was awarded his supervisor's certificate in electric arc welding by the Australian Welding Institute.
The mortgage on 87 Enfield St was discharged on 12 Jun 1963 and the property now debt free.
At various times between 1958 and 1965, Freda’s father, Arthur Taylor, lived with them as Freda's mother Ada had died in 1958 (Arthur also lived with Freda’s other sister Betty for a while during this time). Ron and Arthur would often be sitting out in the shade house having a drink after work or on the weekend. Arthur was living with Ron & Freda when he died in 1965.
Ron worked for Structural Engineering for 22 years becoming Leading Hand and then Supervisor. He had just been put on as staff when the firm collapsed in 1972. This was so disappointing for Ron, and with only a few years to go to retirement, he worked as a welder at the Forward Down factory becoming involved in the Australian Metalworkers Union as a shop steward. I remember him taking me to the Structural Engineering factory in Welshpool one weekend to see the results of a major welding project they had done – huge cylinders & tanks loaded up on long semi-trailers about to be driven up north to a minesite somewhere. I was very impressed by the number of wheels on the semi trailer.4
Ronald Leslie Barber retired in 1979 aged 60, a welder with Forward Down Engineering.
Ron enjoyed a beer, and a bet on the horse races. He was a member of the Perth Football Cub for a period of time, and later in life tried bowls at the Lathlain-Carlisle Lawn Bowling Club. In retirement he enjoyed his time at home but was reluctant to do anything too adventurous which frustrated Freda to some degree. I think he became anxious rather easily and was reluctant to move out of his comfort zone. Ron also enjoyed listening to records of Frank Sinatra, Tijuhana Brass, Black & White Minstrel Show, Sound of Music, etc. and, of course, watching the television.
Ron returned to Brighton to see his parents in 1970 and, with Freda, 1976. Ron really missed his family and the social aspects of his earlier life in England. He often said that the best job he ever had was when he was working on the buses where he was meeting people all the time. The isolation caused by life in the suburbs and working in a factory in Australia during the 1950s & 60s created some regrets (which were not shared by Freda, as her whole family had emigrated to WA in 1948). It is fair to say that their descendants owe Ron and Freda a debt of gratitude for the sacrifices and hardships they endured as many are now reaping the benefits of their decision to move to Australia.
Ronald Leslie Barber died on 14 June 1990 at 87 Enfield St, Victoria Park, Western Australia, Australia, at age 70.5
Ron died in the early evening in bed at home of a heart attack. The family quickly gathered at 87 Enfield St to comfort Freda. The police had to be called initially as was routine for a death at home, but they were very polite and understanding.
His body was cremated on 18 June 1990 at Section MC, Site 17 Position 16, Karrakatta, Western Australia, Australia.

Stephen Barber

b. 1762
FatherRichard Barber b. 9 May 1716, d. 1786
MotherElizabeth Luffe b. 4 Jun 1730
     Stephen Barber was baptized in 1762 at Leigh, Kent, England.1 He was the son of Richard Barber and Elizabeth Luffe.
Note that only the year of Stephen's baptism is given in Familysearch.org.
The baptisms recorded in Leigh from 1790 are for Stephen and Eliza/Elizabeth. Baptisms for Stephen and Lydia in Leigh only start on 15 Jun 1800 though. Should those ealier baptisms really be for Stephen and Lydia or is there another Stephen Barber? A marriage of Stephen Barber to an Elizabeth or Eliza has not been found. This family is a bit of a mess at the moment and probably the original records need to be checked.2
Stephen Barber married Lydia Best on 4 July 1790 at Leigh, Kent, England.3
A possible death for Stephen is in 1844 in the Sevenoaks registration district.4
