As the family tree grows and spreads, we learn about more ‘Barchams’ who have left their motherland, England, and settled in distant parts of the world and raised families there. The Barchams of Edingthorpe, Chapter 6 and the Family History summarise those who founded branches in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Kenya, South America, Canada and the USA. From correspondents and other sources we now know that they left England for various reasons: health, employment opportunities, to get married, and to escape the long arm of the law. They succeeded in their quests, prospered and raised families.


We will be very pleased to hear from any descendants of these far-flung migrants, and apologize for any we have not mentioned.. We will be interested to know the names of the ships on which they travelled to their foreign destinations, where they settled, their homes, occupations and families.


Identified by the following designations – descendants of Bartholomew Barcham of Great Yarmouth (BwB); Juler branch of North Walsham (JnJ); William Barcham of Great Yarmouth and Mundesley (WmB); John Barcham of Edingthorpe (JnB); and Benjamin Barcham of Sherringham (BnB) – some of these later emigrants are:


To Australia

(JnJ) Henry Lound (1830–1909), son of Mary (Juler) and William Lound,


(JnJ)  William Juler (1820–1877) son of Alice and William Juler, of Burnham, Norfolk, was an engraver in St. Ives, Cornwall, before he sailed to Australia sometime between 1851 and 1857. His wife, Mary Ann (Clemence) took an assisted passage, paid by the State of Victoria, aboard the Grand Trianon, sailing from Southampton on April 12, and arriving at a port in Victoria on August 20, 1858. They settled in Creswick, Victoria, where William opened a watchmaker and jeweler’s shop. [see Julers of North Walsham]. William left Cornwall at about the same time as Henry Barcham’s father-in-law, John Richards and his family of Zennor, a small village a mile or two west of St Ives. At that time there was an economic recession in Cornwall, and there had been a cholera epidemic in 1849, during which several villages, including Zennor were quarantined.  Today, a plaque in Zennor marks the boundary that villagers were not allowed to cross:



Was positioned here at the boundary of ZENNOR CHURCHTOWN

During outbreaks of Disease, the depression in the centre was filled with Vinegar.

Money that changed hands between Villagers and Outsiders would be placed in the Vinegar and thus Disinfected.

(JnJ) Henry Lound (1830–1909), son of Mary (Juler) and William Lound, and his cousin Sophia Cooper Lound (1824–1908) sailed to Australia aboard the Anglesey, leaving Plymouth on September 1, and arriving at Sydney on December 17, 1852. Henry was 22, and had received a legacy from his widowed mother’s estate. It is assumed that Henry believed he could prosper in the new colony, and he became a partner in ‘Lound and Geary’, a mercer’s business in Wynard Lane, Sydney, and married Jane Meyn there in 1854. Unfortunately, the business failed and by 1872 Henry had become an auctioneer in Singleton, NSW. Presumably, Sophia Lound emigrated because she thought her marriage prospects might be better in Australia than in London: she did marry and had a daughter.


(JnJ) Hugh Lound, a grandson of Mary (Juler) and William Lound jnr and brother of Reginal Stanley Lound (see War Service) emigrated to Australia  and married in Sydney NSW.


(WmB) Mary (Hicks) Eddison (1906–1996)), granddaughter of Elizabeth (Green) and Thomas Barcham of Paston, went to Australia after her husband died in 1979. Presumably she was living with a relative when she died there in 1996..


(JnB) (Isabel) Imogen Fitzpatrick (b. 1925), daughter of Norah (Browning) and Maurice Fitzpatrick (see below), was educated at Loretta Convent School in Nairobi. She married Roy Ballaam. Their three children were born in East Africa. Imogen and Roy emigrated to Australia in 1966.


(BnB)  Leonard James Barcham, son of Edmund James Barcham (b. 1874) and a great-grandson of Susan Ann and James Barcham. emigrated to Australia in 1927. Leonard was sponsored by his distant cousin, Herbert Edmund Barcham, with whom he stayed at Box Hill, Melbourne, for a few years; later moving to Kyabram, some miles north of Melbourne. Leonard had a variety of occupations – farm hand, greengrocer, postmaster and orchard employee – as well as enlisting in the Australian armed forces during WWII.


To South Africa and Rhodesia

(JnB) Three of Mary Ann and William Newton Springall’s children, and one of their cousins emigrated to South Africa at various times after 1901:

Maud Elizabeth Springall (b. 1873) was a school teacher living in Surrey before she emigrated to South Africa. She became Vice Principal of the Girl’s High School, Sea Point, a suburb of Cape Town. Maud did not marry.


Ernest William Springall (b. 1876) was an ironmonger’s assistant in Worcester. He emigrated to South Africa and opened a hardware store in Mafeking.


Percy Cott Springall (b. 1878) was a grocer’s assistant in Norwich. He went into business with Ernest.


Gerald Hugh Olley (b. 1896), was the son of Minnie Ann Springall and Ralph Hales Olley. Gerald (see also War Service) was invited to work for his uncles in Mafeking, later becoming a salesman for the British Trading Association, and finally owned ‘Olley’s’, a grocery store in Fort Victoria, Rhodesia [now Zimbabwe].


(JnB) Alan Howe a grandson of a grandson of Caroline (Quantrill) and John Robert Barcham, of Wicklewood, Norfolk went to Rhodesia. When he emigrated, where he settled and what his occupation was are not known at present.


To South America

(JnJ)  Several descendants of Sarah (Barcham) and John Juler of North Walsham emigrated to South America. They were:

Louisa Katherine Lound (b. ~1860) married (name not known) and went with him to Argentina, where he was a private secretary. Their two sons were born in Buenos Aries.


Kim Allisstone, grandson of Annie and William Allisstone, went to live in the jungles of South America, sometime in the 20th century, and married there. At present we have no more information about when he left England, where he settled, his occupation and if he has descendants there.


To Canada

(BwB) Blanche Wormall (b. about 1890), a granddaughter Maria (Gaymore) and John Elliot Sayer sailed to Canada aboard SS Lake Manitoba. She joined the colony founded by Rev. Isaac Montgomery Barr, near Llloydminster, Manitoba. It is believed she returned to England eventually, and married there.  Note: Blanche was Jock Steele Lewes’ third-cousin once removed, (see War Service)


(Unidentified)  It is believed that Alfred Barcham, and perhaps his wife Katie A. (Stillwell) emigrated to Canada sometime before their daughter Helen was born in Brockville, Ontario in 1897. Helen, aged 24, married William F. Ryland at Belleville, Hastings County, Ontario, on July 18, 1921, and Katie Barcham was one of the witnesses. Surprisingly, Katie, Alfred and Helen have not been found in the 1901 and 1911 Censuses of Canada, nor have we identified the branch of the family tree to which Alfred belongs: he may have been born in Norwich, England in Q3, 1881, but we need to see his birth certificate. 


(JnJ) Frank Allisstone Juler (1880–1963) went to Canada when he was 18. He went back to England where he married in 1910, then returned to Canada with his wife. It is not known where they settled and what Frank’s occupation was. Their descendants are living in Canada at present.


(JnJ) Joyce Juler, the youngest daughter of  Annie and Frederick Harold Juler, married Gordon Jackson, a Canadian Serviceman, shortly after WWII,  and went to live with him in the small town of Oxford Mills  in eastern Ontario.


(WmB) Rivers Keith Hicks (1878–1964), grandson of Elizabeth (Green) and Thomas Barcham of Paston, emigrated to Canada and died in Toronto. Nothing more is known about him at present. 


To Kenya

(JnB) (Isabel) Norah Browning (b. 1894, at Whitstable, Kent, d. 1963, in Nairobi Kenya), daughter of Isabel (Green) and Arthur Robertson Browning [see also War Service] spent most of her childhood in India and went to a boarding school in India. She was governess for the editor of the Cape Times in Cape Town, South Africa, before going to Nairobi,  Kenya, where in October 1927 she married Maurice John Joseph Fitzpatrick, who was born in 1891,  at Kohat, India [now in Pakistan]. Norah and Maurice’s parents may have known each other in India. .At the time of their marriage, Maurice was the manager of a coffee plantation near Mt Kenya. They had three daughters: the eldest, Isabel Imogen, emigrated to Australia, see above.


To New Zealand

(JnB) Sarah Wendy Green, now Arafelle Oné  travelled overland via Afghanistan to Australia, and thence from Sydney to New Zealand with her husband in the 1970s. They settled in Auckland and in 1977, recognizing her new homeland, she became a New Zealand citizen. Sarah and her husband divorced in 1975, and Sarah, changed her surname name by deed pole to Oné, and was known as, Osha, until 1996 when she changed her first name to Arafelle. She and her daughter Jade, who was born in New Zealand, live in the North Island. Her great-grandmother, Gertrude Millville was born in Dunedin, New Zealand in 1862, and returned to England with her parents and elder siblings sometime before 1874.

Note: There are other descendants of John Barcham’s branch now living in New Zealand: they are descendants of Phoebe (Barcham) and Jacob Shalders.


(JnJ) Joyce Bridget Juler, daughter of Mabel (Chamberlayne) and Frank Anderson Juler, emigrated to New Zealand sometime before 1947. At Devenport in 1947, she married another recent immigrant to New Zealand.


To the USA

(JnB) Norman Ralph Olley (b. about 1892), the eldest son of Minnie Ann (Springall) and Ralph Hales Olley, emigrated to the USA some time in the 20th century. He lived in Rochester, NY.


(JnJ) Four members of the Juler Family emigrated to the USA at various times. They were:

Henry Cundell Juler (1827–1913) had been a respected surgeon in London until he was charged for committing perjury as a witness in a trial at the Old Bailey, in 1866. He left London before the warrant for his arrest could be served.  Henry went to the United States and established himself in Cincinnati, Ohio, as a physician and surgeon. According to a published biographical sketch: ‘In politics he was a Republican.’ 


Bernard Arthur Juler (1871–1890), Henry Cundell Juler’s nephew, was the son of Emily and Richard Roan Juler. When he emigrated and what his occupation was is not known at present. He died in Cincinnati, Ohio, on July 12, 1890.


Edward Cundell Juler (1875–1964), another nephew of Henry Cundell Juler, became a lawyer. Edward emigrated to the USA in 1891 and settled in Hamilton County, Ohio, near to where his uncle was living.


Note: A descendant of this branch of the Juler family lives in Cincinnati at present. Another emigrant to the USA from a different branch of the family was:

George Albert Juler (1881–1976), a great-great-grandson of Sarah Leathley and Matthew Juler of Cambridge. He was a carpenter’s apprentice in Lowestoft, Suffolk, before he emigrated   He landed at St John’s, Newfoundland on March 4, 1903, then travelled across Canada working as a master carpenter and entered the USA through Seattle, moving on to California where he settled in the Central Valley. He became a naturalized citizen of the USA in 1920. 


(JnB) Two descendants of Elizabeth (Norman) and Samuel Barcham of Catfield emigrated to the USA. They were:

Richard Charles Barcham a grandson of Caroline (Quantrill) and John Robert Barcham.  Richard settled in Texas in 1957.


Ethel Barcham (1924–1975), married Herbert Johnson, a GI, at Attleborough, Norfolk in 1944.  Their first child was born in Norfolk and emigrated with her parents to Kansas City where their second child was born.
