Alexander Barreau (I)

On the marriage index record of Alexander Barreau (II) and Elizabeth (Hamilton) Nell (dated 1845) the name of the groom’s father is listed, and it is ALEXANDER BARREAU.

This could, of course, be a clerical error, but it was a common enough practice in the 19th century.

We do not know any more details on Alexander Barreau (I).  We can assume he probably had no links withAustralia  (as Alexander (II) came to SA in 1847, so in the early days of the colony), but we do not know where he did come from.

Parents: unknown.
