Will the real George Barrett(s) please stand up? 1798 Wiltshire or Staffordshire

+7 votes

I noticed this week that many of A. A. Milne's connections seem to go through his grandmother's half-brother George Berrett. Could we get some source citations for George and his father?

One sibling Rosa Meech Barrett is born in 1897 and probably needs to be removed, although I did find new birth records for two other siblings today that made them no longer born before their parents. Can we try to sort this while we're still featuring Milne this week?

Did one George Barrett really marry both Jane Garland and live in Wiltshire, and later marry Amelia Haddington and live in Staffordshire? Could we be mixing two or more Georges?

One George is born in Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire. His wife is Jane Garland, and he has other children with Amelia Haddington:


Two Georges are set as the husbands of Amelia Haddington. One is born in Staffordshire:


One is born in Steeple Ashton, Wiltshire:


Thanks for your attention!

That whole tree is gibberish. George's father (b. 1798) has a daughter born 1897. Looks like an ancestry special.
Matthew, the birthdate of 1897 is the only bit of "gibberish" I've found so far, and may be explained by a typo. Are there other obvious errors that we should be resolving?
The WikiTree profile has George Barrett born in 1830 died 1838.
Frank, yes. I'm writing about the three linked profiles (now two as we've had a merge) which could be his father.
