source. http://www.fairhall.id.au/families/myline/p1360.htm#i33991 & Geoff & Val Wells who writes:
Catherine was the youngest child of George and Eliza and was born in Peasmarsh, Sussex on 10th September 1834. Catherine was just 16 months old at the time of her mother's death and not quite four years of age when her father George married Louisa Wratten. Along with her father, older brothers and sisters and her new family Catherine emigrated from England to Australia onboard the "Orient" in 1838. When Catherine was just 17 years old she married Hiram Barnes, a young man believed to be 12 years her senior. Hiram was a Cobb & Co. Coach driver by occupation and it is believed that he and Catherine spent the early part of their married life in Victoria. This is substantiated through the records of birth of their first four children where birth registrations were all completed in Melbourne. Sadly their first known child, Hiram born 1853, was a stillborn baby. Hiram and Catherine were to go on to have another twelve children in total and from the birth registrations of those children we can see that Hiram, Catherine and their young family had relocated to Forbes, N.S.W by 1863. By the time their 7th child arrived in 1867 the family were living in Toowoomba, Queensland. The remainder of Hiram and Catherine's children were all born in the Brisbane area. (youngest born Warwick - 100 miles from Brisbane) It is believed that Hiram was instrumental in forging the Cobb & Co Coach run between N.S.W and Queensland in the early years of the coach service.1 Catherine died in 1916 in Kelvin Grove, Queensland and Hiram in Brisbane in 1917 REFERENCES: 1.
