Williams / others notes
The examination of the Census data shows that Alfred [Tibby] Barrett was the son of Charles Barrett, blacksmith, of Sevenhampton and brother of Francis [Frank] Barrett. In 1871, at the age of 22, his occupation is given as blacksmith. In 1881, at the age of 32 it is given as mat maker and his younger brother, Henry, aged 14, is listed as blacksmith. This may indicate that Alfred had suffered some form of industrial injury preluding him from continuing in the physically demanding occupation of blacksmith.

Alfred Williams does not identify the links between Alfred and Charles, from whom he also collected, though the Census returns strongly suggest that they are related. Charles Barrett appears to have died in 1888, aged, 72, so Williams did not collect from him, but from his sons [CDW]
