Henry ANDREWS and Mary BARMORE
My 3rd Great Grandparents
Henry ANDREWS (c.1806-1886), son of Charles ANDREWS and Mary PALMER, was baptised on 9 November 1806 in Severn Stoke, Worcestershire, England. He was variously a Car Owner & Driver, Coach Builder, Wheelwright, Coal Merchant, Labourer and Veterinary Surgeon.
Mary BARMORE (c.1795-1848), daughter of Joseph BARMORE and Margaret SKYRME was baptised on 19 August 1795 in St. Peter, Worcester, Worcestershire, England.
Mary and her first husband Jacob SPOONER were married on 25 October 1819 at St. Peter in Worcester. They had a son Jacob who was baptised on 8 October 1820 at St. Peter, Worcester. Henry ANDREWS and Mary SPOONER nee BARMORE, a widow, were married on 4 April 1827 at St Michael Bedwardine in Worcester.
In the Census taken on 6 June 1841, Henry aged 35, a Car Owner, and Mary age 40, were living in Upper Clare St, Liverpool, Lancashire, with their children, Lucy 13, Henry 8 and Charles 5. Also living with them was Mary's son, Jacob Spooner, aged 20 a Car Driver.
Mary died aged 53 on 10 May 1848 at 6 Mount Terrace, Back Parliament St, Liverpool from pulmonary consumption after an illness lasting 6 months. The informant was her husband, Henry Andrews, Car Driver who was present at the death.
Mary BARMORE and Jacob SPOONER had the following children:
1. Jacob SPOONER (c.1820)
Jacob was baptised on 8 Oct 1820 at St Peter, Worcester and was born in Shrewsbury, Worcestershire. He married Ellen NEWBY (1825-1846) on 23 July 1843 in Liverpool, Lancashire, England. They had one child, Jacob Henry born 1844.
Henry ANDREWS and Mary BARMORE had the following children:
1. Robert ANDREWS (c.1827)
In the General Rate Book dated 9 February, 1870 for the Borough of East Collingwood he was a Painter living in Robert St, Collingwood. On 21 September 1870, he was the informant on his Step-Mother Jane Andrews Death Certificate and both their addresses were given as Hoddle St, Collingwood, Vic. In the General Rate Book dated 6 March 1872 he was listed as a Painter living in Hoddle St, Collingwood. The dwelling was described as a brick house. No further information has been found for Robert.
NOTE: I have added Robert ANDREWS as a child of Henry ANDREWS and Mary BARMORE because on the Death Certificate of Henry's second wife Jane ANDREWS nee BURNS, the informant was Robert Andrews, Step Son. Both Jane and Robert were living in Hoddle St, Collingwood. On Henry ANDREWS Death Certificate, only his first wife Mary BARMORE and their children Lucy, Henry and Charles were listed. No mention was made of son Robert or Henry's second wife Jane BURNS and their three children, William, Joseph and Fanny. The informant was Henry's son-in-law Robert Cottier. This is a mystery, was Henry ANDREWS estranged from his son Robert and his second wife and their children?
2. Lucy ANDREWS (c.1828-1905).
Lucy was baptised on 22 June 1828 in St Peter's, Worcester, Worcestershire, England. In the 1851 Census, Lucy, aged 22, was living in Mill Lane, Cross Mount, Aughton, Lancashire and working as a Lady's Maid. She married Robert Chadwick COTTIER(1830-1907) on 20 November 1855 at the Cathedral Church of St James, Melbourne, Vic. Henry Andrews was one of the witnesses. At the time of her marriage she was living with relations. They had three children, Walter Charles 1860-1918; Lucy Mary 1862-1936 and Henry William 1864-1941. She died on 27 August 1905 at 2 Burton St, Camperdown, NSW.
3. Henry ANDREWS (c.1833-1895). My Great Great Grandfather
4. Charles William ANDREWS (c.1836- ).
Charles was baptised on 31 August 1835 at St Phillip, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England. In the 1851 Census, Charles aged 15, was working as an Apprentice Hairdresser and living in the same household as his employer at 4 Greenland St, Liverpool, England. In the 1855 New York State Census, USA he was aged 19 and living with his father and step-mother. He had been resident in the city for 3 years. He married Jane MARTIN on 6 June 1864 in Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia. They had six children, Charles Henry 1866-67; Lucy 1868-78; James William 1870-70; Emily 1873-1961; Mary 1875-1954; Henry J 1878-1900.
Henry ANDREWS and Jane BURNS (his second wife)
Jane BURNS was born about 1816 in Liverpool. She married her first husband, Skeffington HOLDERNESS in September 1837 in Liverpool. They had three children: John c.1839; Elizabeth Jane 1843-79; Agnes 1846.
Henry ANDREWS and Jane were married on 7 September 1848 in the Church of St. Michael, Liverpool, Lancaster, England. He was a widower and she was a widow. They were living in Upper Mann St, and he was a Car Owner. His father was Charles ANDREWS a farmer.
In the Census taken on 30 March 1851, Henry aged 43, and Jane aged 34, were living at 51 Woolfe St, Toxteth Park, Liverpool, Lancashire. Henry was a Labourer. Living with them was their son Joseph aged 1; Henry's son, Henry 18 a Stonemason and Jane's children, John 12 and Elizabeth 7. Also living with them was Henry's step-son Jacob Spooner, a lodger and widower aged 29 who was working as a labourer and his son Jacob Spooner, 7.
In about 1852 the family emigrated to New York, USA. In the New York State Census taken on 1 June 1855, Henry, aged 48 and Jane, aged 29, were living in Ward 22, New York. With them were their children, Charles 19, John 16, Eliza 12, William 4 and Joseph 1. Joseph was born in New York. They had been resident in the city for 3 years. While in New York, Henry worked as a Coach Builder.
Henry emigrated from New York to Melbourne, Victoria aboard the ship 'Compeer" arriving on 20 May 1860. When he arrived in Melbourne he went to work in his son Henry's Coal Merchant business. His son became a bankrupt and Henry snr. was involved in the bankruptcy proceedings which were reported in the following newspaper articles.

Jane died aged 52 of paralysis lasting 11 weeks on 21 September 1870 in Hoddle St, Collingwood, Victoria and was buried two days later in Melbourne. The informant was Robert Andrews, step-son of Hoddle St, Collingwood. As mentioned above this indicates that Henry and his first wife Mary had another son named Robert but I have been unable to find any record of him.
In about 1881 Henry moved from Victoria to Sydney, New South Wales.
Henry died aged 80 of old age on 4 September 1886 in Willoughby, NSW and was buried two days later in the Church of England Cemetery, Willoughby. The informant was his son-in-law, Robert Cottier. Listed on Henry's death certificate was his first wife Mary Barmore and their three children Lucy, Henry and Charles but strangely no mention was made of his second wife Jane or the children of this marriage.
