Frederick Barrington Best (Neil's grandfather) was born on 7 December 1873, the last child of Caleb and Jane Best. I have done considerable research into the origins of his Barrington name.

Frederick married Lucy Amy Boult on 28 Dec 1905 at the Temple, St Mary Cray, Orpington. After their marriage, the couple settled in a house called Sannox in St Mary Cray, Orpington, and Frederick continued in the family business as the local butcher at Best and Son in High Street, Orpington.

There were five children:

Lucy died leaving children who were not yet adult. So Frederick remarried. There were no children of the second marriage. He died on 9 April 1958.
