submitted by Brian Henry Victor Barlow

This is copied from a handwritten item dated March 1972 by Henry Barlow, who passed away in 1978. Henry was Brian's father. It concerns the lineage of this particular line of Barlows...

All of the Barlows on male side of the family at the ages of 21 years became FREEMEN OF THE ANCIENT BOROUGH OF DERBY, except Jim Barlow, late, of Stockbrook St. Derby. Due to recent changes of place of birth, Robert Barlow, and I believe Paul can claim this right, by inheritance, if domiciled in England (Derby) after the age of 21 years through application to the Town Clerk. Therefore, the names of all ancestors down the years are on the Freemans Scroll.

No. 36 Boyer Street was in the Barlow family for 3 generations. The first generation, being Brians great grandfather and mother. Not much is known of them, except the children of the marriage.
Of these, only Emily survives at age of 86 years. She is in Raynesway View, Foyle Avenue, Chaddesden Derbys .... a home for retired citizens.
