Barber / Barbour


The origin of the name is a question upon which there is some difference of opinion.  All agree, however, that Normandy was its original European home, and that it came into England at the time of the Norman Conquest in the 11th century, and the claim has been made that it came into Normandy indirectly from Persia.  Barber is an early medieval occupational surname for a barber. The derivation is from the Old French "barbier", Anglo-Norman French "barber", from the Latin "barbarius", a derivative of "barba", beard. The barber of the Middle Ages was a skilled practitioner; he not only cut hair and shaved beards, but also acted as a surgeon and tooth-puller. Job descriptive surnames originally denoted the actual occupation of the name bearer, and later became hereditary. The development of the surname includes the following examples: Thomas le Barber (1282, London) and Seykin le Barbier (1299, ibid.), and the modern surname has two forms, Barber and Barbour, the latter is found mainly in Scotland and Northern Ireland. One Thomas Barber was an early emigrant to the American colonies, leaving London on the "Christian" in March 1634, bound for New England. A Coat of Arms granted to the Barber family is a gold shield with two red chevrons between three red fleurs-de-lis, the Crest being a bull's head divided per pale silver and red out of a gold ducal coronet. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Alan le Barbur, which was dated 1221, witness in the "Assize Court Rolls of Warwickshire", during the reign of King Henry 111, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

Research has so far uncovered at least 5 main Barber lines in America

  1. John Barber born about 1630 in England and came to New England about 1659
     

  2. Thomas Barber born in England who came to the Connecticut colony as a carpenter in 1635.

  3. Moses Barber born in the Rhode Island colony in 1652, Son of James Barber born in England, who came to the colony in approx. 1633.

  4. William Barber, born in Drumcliffe Parish, County Sligo, Ireland in 1761. There were several prior generations in this area of northwestern Ireland. The earliest arrival was around 1656. He was a disbanded Cromwellian soldier according to the Schedule of Officers, claiming as soldiers under the Acts of Settlement and Explanation, MSS, Record Office, Kew, London. Descendants of this line can be found today in Ireland, England, Canada, US and Australia.

  5. Francis Barber who came alone aboard the Plaine Jone in 1635 landing in Virginia Colony. Later settled in NJ and is possibly the source of NJ Barbers.

History of Gas Turbine


John Barber, 1734-1801 was an English coalmaster and inventor. He was born in Nottinghamshire, but moved to Warwickshire in the 1760s to manage collieries in the Nuneaton area. For a time he lived in Camp Hill House, between Hartshill and Nuneaton, and later lived in Attleborough. He patented several inventions between 1766 and 1792, of which the most remarkable was one for a gas turbine.

 

Unfortunately nothing practical came out of this patent, but Barber was the first man to describe in detail the principle of the gas turbine, and in recent years a working model based on Barber's specification has been built.


He was the first to patent a design that used the thermodynamic cycle of the modem gas turbine. His design contained the basics of the modem gas turbine it had a compressor, a combustion chamber, and a turbine. The main difference in his design was that the turbine was equipped with a chain-driven reciprocating type of compressor. He intended its use for jet propulsion.

John was a bodice-maker and tailor by trade as proved by the following Note: “1663-4, Mar. 2: The Steward of the Hospital is desired to disburse unto Mr. Cole the Summe of 3 li. For the transportation of John Barber and his family to New England” (Records of the Borough of Dorchester, co. Dorset, England, p. 521)."

 

1657: mentioned in Martin Stebbins' will, as owing him (Stebbins) money. See p. 377-378, First report of the Record Commissioners of the City of Boston. Quite possibly the first instance of him in America (until we can find births of sons John, Jr. and James.

“Oct. 27, 1690. James Barber of Dorchester, tailor, surety to town of Boston for his father John Barber bodice-maker and his family.” (Rec. Comm. Rep. Vol. 10, p. 80).

 

“1692. May 3. James Barber the Reson of these few lines are to acquaint you that your father John Barber is come to Boston, and being by the selectmen of Boston demanded to give a Reson thereof, he Saith you have not been kind to him but macketh him worcke Two or three mile abrod which is burdensum to him and more than he can do in his old age; the Select(men) of Boston do Require you as you will keep your Covinant which you maid with them 27, Octtob 90. To come and take care of your father, or Ealse you may expect wee shall prosecture the Law upon you.” (Rec. Com. Rep. Vol 10, p. 62.)

 

From Betty Barber Lusk, 1 January 2007:
"I never could find any death records for John and Hannah, nor probates for them. Deaths were often not recorded in the Boston Vital Records- Births, Baptisms were considered inportant, and then marriages were of next importance, and lastly deaths, but usually only when they were leaving enough property to make probate a necessity."

King Philip's War was an armed conflict between Indian inhabitants of present-day southern New England and English colonists and their Indian allies from 1675–1676. Nearly one in twenty persons overall among Indians and English were wounded or killed. King Philip's war was one of the bloodiest and most costly in the history of America.

The war is named after the main leader of the Indian side, Metacomet, Metacom, or Pometacom known to the English as "King Philip".

The society recently restored and opened its new museum at the historic Barber House. Its collection includes photographs, framed special local history, town artifacts, scrapbooks and albums.
Hours and Admission: By appointment.


Barber family photos from the early 1900s clearly show the barn. Maynard says the barn probably wasn’t built for an agricultural enterprise, but for the use of the household. "They would have had horses, and there are stalls in the barn, and storage for hay upstairs," she says. "There may have been a place for chickens in the barn, although later there was a chicken coop near the barn."

 

Barber, Eunice A. Ashley                          Rome Sentinel  Jan 2, 1894
VERONA Jan 2 -- Mrs. Eunice A. Ashley, wife of Robert H. Barber, died yesterday after a year’s illness. The deceased possessed many excellent qualities which endeared her to a host of friends. She was a member of the M. E. Church. Besides her husband she is survived by her father, Noah Ashley of Clark Mills, and three brothers, Frank P. and William M. of Utica and Albert L. Ashley of Frankfort. (Note burial in Verona Cemetery)
 

Barber, Mary                                 Rome Sentinel March 2, 1912
WESTMORELAND Miss Mary Barber Passes Away After Long Illness Westmoreland, March 2 -- Miss Mary Barber died at the home of her cousin, J. Harvey Skinner, in the village of Westmoreland on Thursday, in her 79th year. She was born January 6, 1834, and is the last of the family of Eleanor Hanna and Thomas Barber, formerly of the town of Verona. Her grandfather, John Barber was one of the founders of the first society formed in the towns of Vernon and Verona for religious worship, at what is now known as Phelps Corners. Her father donated the timber for the M. E. Church at Lowell, and contributed to its support for over 50 years. Miss Barber has been a member and hearty supporter of the M. E. Church at Verona, though not a regular attendant during the last eight years of her life. A large circle of friends and acquaintances will miss her kindly interest and assistance in church and the communities where she is known.. Throughout her lingering illness, due to her failing vitality, she maintained a kindly interest in all about her. Her funeral will be held privately at her request at the home of the cousin where she died on Sunday, March 3 at 11 a.m., Rev. Adelbert Warren of Verona officiating. Burial will be made at Verona cemetery.

                      in Great Falls with the Rev. Edwin Dover of Choteau officiating.

Burial:          The body was forwarded to Wheaton, Illinois for burial at nearby

                     Oak Woods Cemetery in Chicago, Illinois
                    

Oak Woods is the most significant historic cemetery of Chicago's South Side. Buried here are such renowned figures as Mayors Thompson and Washington crime boss Big Jim Colosimo, Olympian Jesse Owens, civil rights activist Ida B. Wells, and physicist Enrico Fermi. Six thousand Confederate soldiers, prisoners of war who died at Camp Douglas, are buried together beneath a towering monument.

Oak Woods is located at 67th and Cottage Grove, not far from the lake. The cemetery was established in 1854, a full five years before Rosehill and Calvary, but no burials took place until 1860. Originally, the cemetery was beyond the city limits but conveniently close to railroad lines. Chicago annexed the area containing Oak Woods in 1890. In 1893, the World's Columbian Exposition was held only a few blocks north of Oak Woods, in what is now known as Jackson Park.

At a young age he became a principal and teacher at schools in Michigan and Indiana, followed by work as a book canvasser (book salesman).  Because of his son Haskell's health problems, Herbert began looking to relocate to Montana.  In 1909, He discovered an area of Montana where a major irrigation project had recently been completed and recognized the opportunity to turn undeveloped land into rich farm properties.  By 1912, H. L. Barber & Company had built the town-site of Williams, Montana in Pondera County, which came to be known as “The Gem of the Project,” and later a second nearby town-site known as Manson.  Both town sites were located next to the East-West railway and were stops for the famous East-West train called "Oriental Limited" and later the “The Empire Builder”, which HL used to commute between Williams and Chicago.  The towns thrived until H. L. died in Williams in 1937, and gradually the towns died too.

Making Money Make Money  by Herbert Lee “H. L.” Barber

Written nearly one hundred years ago in 1912, was inspired by the popularity of his monthly financial periodical, Investing for Profit, which at the time was the largest exclusively financial publication in America.

After eight years of editing Investing for Profit, published by H.L. Barber & Company of Chicago, “H.L.” decided to write this first book, and it too gained worldwide acceptance and fostered his economic and investment advice to readers hungry for knowledge on the subject. The magazine was published from 1890 into the 1930’s, and in 1917, H.L. wrote a sequel to this first book entitled similarly to the magazine as Investing for Profits, and an ample audience awaited its arrival.

Story of the Automobile  (9.4MB)

Its History and Development From 1760 to 1917
by H. L. Barber,  Economist and Financial Writer

 

Early owners of cars learned by bitter experience what it meant to have a screw loose or a tire put out of business in a town where the supply stores did not sell that particular screw or that particular tire. . . . High maintenance and repair costs ate up many an automobile buyer in the early days of the craze. It wasn't the original cost, although that was high enough; it was the upkeep.

"The Gem of the Project"

town of Williams founded by H.L. Barber

In 1933 President Roosevelt officially signed a Proclamation declaring a Bank Holiday to go from March 6, Monday, to Thursday. All the banks in the nation were closed to review their condition.  The great depression had been going on for a number of years and people were unable to pay their bank loans. The assets they put up, mostly farms, simply had no buyers so the banks were not able to sell them or had to sell them at a greatly depressed value. Now days of course the government would step in and bail out the banks at taxpayers expense, but this was prior to 1933 and the banks were losing assets.

 

The First State Bank of Williams was a solid business and was the first bank to open after the 1933 bank holiday.  In 1937, after H.L. Barber's death, The First State Bank was liquidated and all stockholders were paid in full.

 

"Oriental Limited" & "The Empire Builder"

 

Both town sites were located next to the East-West railway and were stops for the famous East-West train called "Oriental Limited" and later the “The Empire Builder”, which HL used to commute between Williams and Chicago.

 

Great Northern Empire Builder (Google Books)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_Limited

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Empire_Builder

The Oriental Limited entered service in December 1905 as a St. Paul–Seattle train; the eastern terminus was extended to Chicago in 1909. Once the premiere train on its route, it was downgraded to secondary status in 1929, when the Great Northern's new Empire Builder passenger train was inaugurated. The Oriental Limited name disappeared in 1931, and during the Great Depression and beyond the Great Northern operated only a single through train between Chicago and the coast. The Oriental Limited name returned in 1947, when the railroad's secondary through train was resumed, but that train was finally renamed the Western Star in 1951.
