FatherJohn Barber b. 18 May 1883, d. 1946
MotherAlice Teague b. 7 Jan 1887, d. 1974
     Frederick Charles Barber was born on 26 June 1920 at Brighton, Sussex, England; DOB from GRO Deaths Index record.1 He was the son of John Barber and Alice Teague.
Frederick Charles Barber was a clerk, Brighton Equitable Cooperative Society on 29 September 1939.2
Frederick Charles Barber married Rita E O'Leary in 1952 at Brighton, Sussex, England.3
Fred's son, John Barber, writes:
Fred Barber was brought up at 17 St Luke’s Road, and was educated at St Lukes and then at Elm Grove School. He left school at 16, and soon after joined the Brighton Cooperative Society at the Coal Office in London Rd.
During the war Fred wanted to be a pilot, but this was not an option normally open to the working classes, and he was offered a rear gunner’s post. Typically he turned this down and was promptly sent off to the army – but was diverted by RAF friends into groundcrew and became an armourer and inspector of factories.
In the early 1950’s Fred was elected to the Brighton Town Council as Labour Party member for St Peter’s ward, narrowly defeating the conservative candidate. The ward had traditionally been conservative ‘territory’ so this was something of a coup. Fred served on the council for several years, and was elected member of the Watch Committee. He was a man who liked to get things done for Brighton, and was not averse to working with the conservative members to bring this about. He was instrumental for instance in settling the dispute of the London Road barrow-boys. In those days London men used to come to Brighton and displace local traders: Fred Barber instigated a licensing system to resolve the acrimony that often resulted from the disputed pitches.
In 1951 Fred was canvassing staff at Brighton General Hospital. (The parties would compete for the nurses’ vote by bussing them down to the polling station !). In the course of canvassing he met a tall re-headed midwifery sister from South Wales, Rita O’leary. Rita was a catholic, and after a tempestuous engagement, Rita eventually deserted her church and family, and married Fred at St Barts in 1952. No member of Rita’s family came to her wedding.
In the late 50’s Fred worked for the Cooperative Insurance Society. He was a hard-working and successful agent, climbing the ladder, eventually being appointed Assistant District Manager at the Society’s offices in North Street and a director of the Brighton Cooperative Society. The Barbers also moved into an amazing house, 20 Hanover Crescent. This Grade 2 listed building was in one of the best regency crescents in Brighton, but half the road had been purchased by the Coop on account of their siting a milk bottling plant to the rear of the properties. Hence employees were allowed to rent the houses. It was a wonderful place to live and the Barbers set about re-creating an authentic regency interior. They held many parties in this house, which became a popular venue for their circle of friends. Nana Barber (Alice Teague) lived nearby and was a frequent visitor.
In 1973 Fred was offered a District Manager’s job at Sutton in Surrey, and so he and Rita left Hanover Crescent with mixed feelings. Fred retired from the C.I.S in 1985 and he and Rita went to live in a spacious Edwardian villa over at Eastbourne where they were very happy. Fred kept in contact with Brighton by virtue of his membership of the Masonic Society (he was Lodge organist) and drove the few miles down the coast road every few months. He kept busy by becoming Treasurer for the Eastbourne Association for the Disabled, where he revolutionised their financial situation in short order.
For all his life Fred was a ‘money man’, practical, wise, much respected and very moral person with a strong sense of humour. He never lost his attachment to Brighton and to St Bartholomew’s.4

In 2001 Frederick Charles Barber and Rita E O'Leary lived at 10 Park Lane, Eastbourne, Sussex, England.4
Frederick Charles Barber died in December 2001 at Eastbourne, Sussex, England, at age 81.5

George Barber

b. 9 September 1791, d. 1869
FatherThomas Barber b. 20 Oct 1752, d. Aug 1821
MotherMary Lipscomb b. 8 Dec 1756, d. 5 Dec 1841
     George Barber was born on 9 September 1791 at Ightham, Kent, England.1 He was the son of Thomas Barber and Mary Lipscomb.
George Barber was baptized on 6 November 1791 at Ightham, Kent, England.
George Barber married Sarah Forest on 20 June 1812 at Ospringe, Kent, England, by banns. Both of this parish. Both made marks. Witnesses: John Tong and John Lot (usually signs, probably parish clerk.)2
George Barber was a labourer in the Royal powder mills (recorded on son Charles' baptism). There are powder mills in Leigh near Tonbridge (George's place of birth) which could explain his move to Tunstall. on 21 August 1813.3
The following minutes were found in the Upper Scray Petty Sessions Minutes for 27 Oct 1814 regarding George and Sarah Barber's settlement in Tunstall:
‘Ospringe. George Barber examined to his Settlement says that he bargained for a year a fortnight before Mich[aelma]s in the year 1810 with Mr. Wm. Twopeny in the Parish of Tunstall and served the same and has gained no Settlement since - says he is chargeable.
Sarah ux [his wife], Charles 14 Months.
George X Barber his mark.
[fee] 2s 6d.’.4

George Barber witnessed the will of Mary Lipscomb dated 17 April 1838 at Tonbridge, Kent, England.5
On 7 June 1841 George Barber and Sarah Forest lived at Tunstall St, Tunstall, Kent, England.
George Barber was an agricultural labourer on 7 June 1841.
On 30 March 1851 George Barber lived at Ufton Court, Tunstall, Kent, England, a widower, agricultural labourer aged 60 years, living with son Charles and his wife Matilda.6
George Barber was an agricultural labourer on 30 March 1851.
George gives his place of birth as Tonbridge, Kent in the 1851 census. His age is stated as 60 years which gives his birth c1791 which is an exact fit. This is the evidence used to identify him as the son of Thomas Barber and Mary Lipscomb.6
George Barber was an agricultural labourer on 7 April 1861.7
On 7 April 1861 George Barber lived at Cottages, Tunstall, Kent, England, widower, age 71 yrs, living with son Charles and his wife Matilda.7
George Barber died in 1869 at Tunstall, Kent, England.
George Barber was buried on 27 October 1869 at Tunstall, Kent, England, age 80 years.8
Notes from Gillian Rickard: I looked further into the George Barber you found in Ospringe. There was an entry for him in my East Kent Settlement Index:
George Barber, wife Sarah and son Charles aged 14 months.
Settlement Examination – at Ospringe, settled Tunstall.
27 October 1814.
Ref: CKS: PS US7.
I obtained a copy and enclose a transcript on a separate sheet. There was no mention of his origins, just his last employment which gained him a legal settlement in the parish of Tunstall.
I found his marriage at Ospringe – no Barber witnesses – and looked for baptisms of children, as on the enclosed sheet. The only child I found was Charles, with his father’s occupation being ‘labourer in the Royal Powder Mills’, i.e., the gunpowder mills.
‘Faversham Gunpowder Personnel Register 1573-1840’, by Raymond Godfrey and Arthur Percival, published by the Faversham Society in 2003, has for George:
‘Barber, George – Labourer in the Royal Powder Mills, 21 Aug 1813, wife Sarah, when his son Charles was baptised at Ospringe, still a labourer in the Powder Mills, 21 Aug 1830, when another son, also Charles, was baptised (P[arish] R[egister])’.

I found George in the 1851 and 1861 censuses. In the 1851 census he was in Tunstall, a widower aged 60, agricultural labourer, born Tunbridge, with son Charles aged 38, also an ag lab, born Ospringe, and Charles’ wife Matilda aged 29, born Rodmersham (HO 107/1627, page 11, schedule 32). In the 1861 census he was still in Tunstall in a ‘Cottage’, aged 71, ag lab, born Tunbridge, and still with Charles aged 49, ag lab, born Ospringe, and his wife Matilda aged 39, born Rodmersham (RG9/529, page 8, schedule 33).
I found the baptism of Charles in 1830 at Ospringe but I do not think he was a second son of that name. I think the two Charles were one person, for some reason baptised twice or recorded in the register twice.
I checked the baptisms and burials at Tunstall and extracted Barber entries, as on the enclosed sheet. George and Sarah had two more children baptised there, of which the second, Mary, died young. I could not find the son George in either the 1841 or 1851 census so he may also have died young. All the Barber burials were of George’s family, his wife in 1850, his son Charles in 1868, Matilda in 1863 and George in 1869. I looked for wills by Charles and George in case relatives in Tonbridge or elsewhere might have been mentioned, but drew a blank on both of them.
Judging by his age in the censuses and on death, this George was born about 1788-1791 so fits the Ightham baptism. I checked the baptisms at Tonbridge but found no entry for a George Barber in the period 1785-1791. As mentioned above, there were no Barber baptisms at Tunbridge Wells chapel between 1729 and 1812. There was nothing for him in bmdregisters. So he could be our George, baptised Ightham but saying in the censuses that he was born at Tonbridge either because he was indeed born there or because that was the normal family home and where he grew up.9

No children.
Notes from Perry Barber: Gert married Frank Fitzpatrick, and they bought some property in Westport, Connecticut that we three kids loved visiting from our home on the upper east side of Manhattan when we were young - it was like going to the country! Her property was on a clear-flowing creek with large tracts of wild flora, just gorgeous. When Gert moved to Laguna Beach, California during the early 1970s to live in this huge retirement community out there called Leisure World, she sold her Westport property to the actors Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, where Ms. Woodward still lives. The Newmans never changed the name on the mailbox near the entrance to their property at the intersection of North Avenue and Coleytown Road; it still says "Fitzpatrick" all these decades later.1
Gertrude Barber died on 20 May 1982 at Laguna Hills, Orange, California, United States, at age 92.
