Notes for James Henry Barrow Burt
He’s on the 1861 England census but not on the 1871, 1881 or 1901 censuses. He left England 27 July 1869 to emigrate to Australia and “was lost”.35

It seems odd that a 19 y.o. would leave his family in England for Australia but he did have several relatives in that country. His uncle John Henry Barrow’s family had emigrated there previously and was established in Adelaide. Also, the latest theory is that his mother’s sister was probably Hannah Elizabeth (Barrow) Sherrard whose family was established in Victoria, Australia. As well, it appears his Uncle Henry John Burt was also established in Victoria, Australia. It would seem reasonable for James to be going to join either his Aunt or Uncle (although, sadly, he seems to have been alone when he died).

He came to Queensland one year prior to his death there from typhoid at age 24.8
