Another child has been uncovered. The only record we have of this is from the 1881 England Census we have the family living at 78 Grafton Street, Hamlet, London, Middlesex. Thomas is 31 and head of the house, Clara 34, George 10, Ernest 6, Amy 1 and Thomas’ brother Charles 26.
From this we see that a daughter, Amy (born about 1880), who did not survive childhood to immigrate with the family to New Zealand in 1884.
This daughter was unknown to Barney so we can assume his father Charles never mentioned an older sister, this maybe because he may not have known of her existence either.
