Biographical notes

The initial clue to this family was through Ann Barton who, as wife to Abraham Long, is consistently recorded in the 1851 to 1811 census returns as born in about 1826 in St Fagans. In the 1841 Census Ann, aged about 14 is not living with her parents, but is living and working as a female servant in nearby Llandaff. However, in the 1841 Census there is only one family with the name of Barton living in St Fagans with other sons living nearby. The inferred parents are recorded; John Barton, 60, ag lab, n [not born in glamorgan]; Susan Barton, 53, n [not born in glamorgan]; Thomas Barton, 12, ag lab, y [born in glamorgan]. Nearby are living; Richard Barton, 18, m[ale] s[ervant], y [born in Glamorgan]; John Barton, 20, m[ale] s[ervant], y [born in Glamorgan].

By the 1851 census Susan has died and a corresponding BMD death record suggests that she died in the last quarter of 1841 (certificate not examined).

The remaining family are still living in St Fagans; John Barton, Head, Widower, 77, Labourer, Gloucester Barnsley; William Barton, Son, Unmarried, 31, Miner, Glamorgan St Fagans; Richard Barton, Son, Unmarried, 28 Miner, Glamorgan St Fagans.

In the 1861 Census John, aged 85, is living in St Fagan's as a lodger with his daughter Ann and his son in law Abraham Langdon; John Barton, Lodger, Widower, 85, Farm Labourer, Gloster Barnsley.

John Barton died in Cardiff in 1863.
