The Early Barnard Settlers

The earliest Barnard immigrations to North America. Sorting the erroneous claims out from the most probable.

The Early Barnard Settlers

Emigrating from England, Barnards were among the earliest settlers of New England. Although none were passengers on the Mayflower which arrived in December, 1620, bearing the Pilgrims which settled at Plymouth, Massachusetts, Barnards were immigrating within 14 years to New England. Listings of Barnard arrivals there in 1620 have been published, but these appear to be errors; they include arrivals to Connecticut and Cambridge, Massachusetts, some years before these localities were settled.

Doubtful Arrivals

The following are listed as arriving in 16201:

  • Bartholomew, in Connecticut
  • Bartholomew, in Maine
  • John, in Cambridge
  • John, in New England
  • Methuselah, in Massachusetts
  • Robert, in New England

Earliest Arrival

The very earliest arrival in the New World with the Barnard surname may have been a William Barnard, who, as a young man of 21 years, arrived in Virginia as early as 1622/232, 3, 4.

Various U.S. Barnard Lineages

A common surname is no guarantee of relationship. Today genealogists researching Barnard lineages recognize different families descending from the early settlers, and have not fully resolved the relationships, if any, among the early Barnard immigrants.
