Barnes, John Wickham (about 1888-1971)

John Wickham Barnes was an accountant. He lived at 2043 Pendrell Street in 1919 and 1920.

He was born in England between 1888 and 1892. His father (also named John Wickham Barnes) was a physician and surgeon, who was born at Bath, England, in 1830. He died in London, England, on October 12, 1899.

John’s mother was Lucy Jenkins (1859-1944). Lucy may have been married to John Wickham Barnes, the physician, although there is little evidence to confirm this.

John Wickham Barnes was married for the first time on June 25, 1853, to Eliza Violett (born about 1835 in Cambridgeshire). She was a daughter of John Walter Violett (probably 1804-1836), who was a solicitor in Yatton, Somerset.

Eliza appears to have died sometime before 1881. John Wickham Barnes later had three children with Lucy Jenkins. After John Wickham Barnes died in 1899, Lucy married Henry George. Lucy moved to Canada; she died in Victoria, British Columbia on August 11, 1944.

On August 1, 1916, in New Westminster, British Columbia, John Wickham Barnes married Mary Postill. She was born on February 16, 1892 in Okanagan Valley, British Columbia (more detail?). Her father was Alfred Postill (1853-1897); her mother was Eleanor Armour Jamieson (1865-1954).

John Wickham Barnes appears to have died in 1971. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.

Mary died in Vancouver in 1983. She was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.
