The Lost Child At Barrington

14th March 1880. Tragedy struck one Sunday morning when Isabella, daughter of Mrs Harriet von Bibra, disappeared from outside her home in Lower Barrington. A massive search continued for days with constables and volunteers from surrounding districts.

Even a £30 reward posted by her uncle failed to turn up anything. Well over a year later, after a bush fire had gone through the area, Isabella's remains, complete with her hat were discovered by a local farmer. One explanation for her death was snake bite.
