    This interesting surname has three possible origins; firstly, it may be a topographical name or occupational name of Anglo-Saxon origin, for someone who lived or worked at a barn, deriving from the genitive case or plural of the Middle English "barn", a development of the Olde English pre 7th Century "bern", meaning barn, granary. The placename Barnes, on the Surrey bank of the Thames in West London, has the same origin, and some bearers may be members of families hailing from there. Secondly, it may be of Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse origin, and is the name borne by the son or servant of a berne, a term used in the early Middle Ages for a member of the upper classes. It derives from the Olde English "beorn", Old Norse "barn" meaning young warrior. Barne was occasionally used as a given name from an Olde English, Old Norse byname, and some examples of the surname may derive from this use. Thirdly, it may be of Irish origin, an Anglicized form of the Gaelic "O'Bearain", descendant of Bearan, a byname meaning spear. London Church Records list the marriage of John Barnes to Joane Bowes on September 16th 1539 at St. Mary Woolnoth. One Barnabie Barnes was an early emigrant to the New World, leaving London on the "Transport" in July 1635, bound for Virginia. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Philip de Bernes, which was dated 1250, in "Sir Christopher Hatton's Book of Seals of Surrey", during the reign of King Henry 111, known as "The Frenchman", 1216 - 1272. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

  • Notes 
    • Chloe Barnes was born in 1762 in Pawling, New York, USA. She was the daughter of William and Deborah (Griswold) Barnes. She was a descendant of Thomas and Jane (Goodnow) Barnes who came to America aboard the Speedwell in 1656. She was a descendant of Edward Fuller, who came to America on the Mayflower. Like Phebe Lord mentioned above, she was also a descendant of Thomas and Dorothy (Bird) Lord who came to America in 1635. Chloe's great great grandmother Mary Lord was the sister of Richard Lord, who was the Father of Phebe Lord. That means Chloe was the third cousin, once removed, of her Husband Elijah Bennett Sill. Chloe died sometime during or after 1823, the exact date is not known. Like her Husband Elijah Bennett, she is also probably buried in the burying ground near North Gulford, New York, USA.
