Where We Lived:

The Barnes Family lived in both Hampshire and London. In Hampshire they were farm workers and in some cases they were tenant farmers of the Duke of Wellington - some of the farms around the Heckfield and Mattingley area of Hampshire still exist to this day, although no longer worked by members of the family.  Of the family that moved to London in the 1860's we know where they lived thanks to the detail provided by the 1871 and subsequent census's and from information on birth, marriage and death certificates. Some of the addresses in London no longer exist either because of later redevelopment or because of war-time bombing. Some that still exist have been renamed. All known addresses are listed here and where possible a photograph and/or a map reference to the property in question is shown. Where a property has been redeveloped a contemporary map, if available is shown instead. The current addresses of living members of the Barnes family are not shown.
