No further information


1    Lancelot and his brother Robert would both have been brought up by his father's second wife Barbara (née Kirsopp). This is presumably why both of them named their daughter Barbara K.

2    There are two marriages registered for a Barbara Kirsopp Swindale, one in the first quarter of 1899 in Newcastle and one in the third quarter of 1901 in Tynemouth. (Information from Norman Swindle). Since Robert's daughter is still living with him in the 1901, it must be this Barbara who married in 1899.

3    The birth of Barbara was registered in Newcastle upon Tyne in the second quarter of 1876.
