Barron – Heir Hunters, Series 9 Episode 16 of 20

The Case of Vera Barron

When Vera Barron died in 2012 at the age of 91, she left behind no immediate family. Finders case manager David Moakes began the investigation into her case, starting with her death certificate. He discovered Vera, who had been born blind because her mother contracted German measles whilst pregnant with Vera, had a sister Sylvia.

Sylvia had also died without having ever married or had children, so the search turned to Vera’s parents revealed a fascinating family history. Her grandfather had worked a shipwright diver all of his life – a well-paid and ell-respected occupation, whilst a cousin, Lieutenant Ronald Glue, had worked in the army’s psychological division during the Second World War, distributing leaflets and pamphlets aimed at encouraging German surrender.

A total of six heirs to Vera’s estate were eventually found – traced through her mother’s sisters. One of those heirs, Antony, had initially been very suspicious of the approach by Finders as he had done his own work on his family tree and Vera’s existence had not been known to him. He expressed enormous gratitude to Vera for the motivation she gave him to do further work on his family tree.
