(Barney, Berney, Barne, Barnie) 

Berney, of Parkhall, in Reedham, Norfolk 
Created Baronet May 5, 1620 

This ancient family were denominated from the town 
of Berney, near Wallingham, in this County, where 
they were seated about the time of the Conquest, and 
have ever since been of considerable note. 

In some very ancient writings, which belonged to 
the Priory of Byham, 

1. Roger de Berney, is found mentioned as Lord of 
Berney, as also 

2. Sir Henry de Berney, Knt., his son; whose son, 

3. Richard de Berney by Catherine, daughter of 
Roger Gygney, Esq., had issue, 

4. Henry de Berney who lived at Berney, 1268, and 
was father of 

5. John de Berney, who resided chiefly in the city 
of Norwich, at his capital messuage there, called Ber- 
ney's Inn, which, or another of the same name, that 
came into the family with the estates at Reedham, by 
marriage, very soon after this time, has continued in it 
ever since. This John de Berney, married Joan, 
daughter and heiress of Bartholomew de Witching- 
ham, Esq. ; he left issue by her, 

6. John de Berney who resided at Witchingham. 
He was one of the Citizens for Norwich, in the Parlia- 

ment held at York, 9 Edw. Ill; also, he, with Robert 
Clare, Esq., were the King's Commissioners, before 
an inquest was taken upon a writ of Ad quod damnum 
concerning the fee of the castle of Norwich, 19 Edw. 
III. In the following year he was elected one of the 
Knights of the Shire for the county of Norfolk, as he 
was again two years afterwards, 22 Ed. Ill, together 
with the said Robert Clare, Esq.; and were allowed £14 
10s. for thirty-four days' attendance. He also served 
in Parliament, 31 Edward III, and for attending 
thirty-two days had £6 8s. allowed for his expenses. 
His first wife was Sarah, daughter of Bartholomew 
Batman, and his second Catharine, daughter of Peter 
Bedingfield, Esq. He left two sons, Robert and 
Thomas. The eldest, Sir Robert Berney, who was a 
Knight Batchelor of the Duke of Guyen and Lancaster, 
continued at Witchingham, and from whom were 
descended the two branches of the family, viz, the 
Witchingham and Gunton, which having continued 
several descents are now extinct. This Sir Robert 
married Margaret, second daughter, and one of the 
co-heiresses of Walter de Walcot, who was a lineal 
descendant of two very ancient families united in him; 
one derived from Sir Clement Clopton, Knt., and the 
other from Sir Matthew de Gunton, Knt., who lived 
22 Hen. I, 1122. Margery, another sister to the said 
Margaret, was a nun in Carrow Abbey. By this mar- 
riage he had the manor of Gunton, where, four genera- 
tions afterwards, a Sir Robert Berney, his descendant, 
who was Steward of Lord Morley, Marshal of Ireland, 
and Sherifi' of Norfolk and Suffolk, 7 and 11 of Henry IV, 
built a very capital house. 

7. Thomas de Berney, second son of the above men- 
tioned John Berney de Witchingham, who was after- 


wards knighted, married Margaret, daughter and 
heiress of Sir Robert Caston, Knt., of a very ancient 
family seated at Reedham, in Norfolk, at the time of 
the Conqueror's survey. By this marriage, besides 
several other estates and lordships, he had the manor 
of Reedham, whither he removed in the reign of Ed- 
ward III, from Witchingham, which continued the 
seat of his elder brother. Sir Robert, and his descend- 
ants, as above mentioned, and Reedham became the 
seat of this branch of the family. 

8. John Berney of Reedham, his son and heir, mar- 
ried Isabel, daughter and heiress of Sir John Herring- 
ham, Knt., and died anno 1440, leaving issue three sons: 
1. Thomas; 2. Robert, of Barrow, Knt., and 3. 
John, who died issueless, 1461. 

9. Thomas Berney de Reedham, the eldest son, by 
Eva, daughter of John Clipsby, Esq., left issue, 

10. John Berney of Reedham, who married Cathar- 
ine, daughter of Osbert Munford, of Hockwold, whose 
son and heir, 

11. John Berney de Reedham, married, first, a 
daughter of Richard Southwell, Esq.; and afterwards a 
daughter of John Wentworth, of Suffolk, leaving issue, 

12. John de Berney of Reedham, whose first wife 
was Margaret, daughter of William Reade, of Beccles, 
in Suffolk, and his second, Alice, daughter of Richard 
Joyner, and relict of Paul Sydnor, of Kent, Esq.; he 
died 1557, leaving issue, Thomasine, married to Thomas 
Osborne, of Kirby, Bedon, Esq.; another daughter 

married to Sydnor, of Blundelson, Esq. ; Mary 

married to Robert Jenny, of Heringfleet; and the 


youngest to Cuddon of Shadingfield, all in 

Suflfolk; also one son and heir, 

13. Henry Berney de Reedham, who, in the reign of 
Philip and Mary, removed the old seat of the family, 
which stood near the church at Reedham, into the park 
there, in which he built a magnificent house (part of 
which is now standing) and made very large gardens, 
anno 1577, calling it Park-hall, in Reedham. He died 
1584, having a numerous issue, by Alice his first wife, 
daughter of Roger Appleton, of Comb, in Essex, and 
Agnes, his second, who was daughter of Walter Clarke, 
of Hadley, in Suflfolk, Esq.; and heiress of her brother 
Edward. Of whom 

14. Sir Thomas Berney de Reedham, Knt., his 
eldest son and heir, was High Sheriff of Norfolk, 7 
James I, 1609, and died 1616, leaving issue by Juliana, 
daughter of Sir Thomas Gaudy, of Redenhall, in Nor- 
folk, Knt., one of the Justices of the Common Pleas, 
several children. Of whom William, the eldest son, 
married the daughter of the Lord Chief Justice Coke, 
but had no issue; and John, the second son, dying 
unmarried; Richard, the third son, became his heir. 
Thomas, the seventh, and youngest son was High 
Sheriff of Norfolk, 22 Charles I, 1647, and married 
Dorothy, daughter of John Smith, of Arminghall, 
from whom is descended that branch of the family 
which resided for a long time in Swardston, but is now 
removed to Bracon, the seat of the present John Ber- 
ney, Esq.; his descendant, who was High Sheriff of 
Norfolk, 1760. 

15. Sir Richard Berney de Reedham, the third son 
of Sir Thomas, by his two elder brothers dying without 
issue, became his heir, and was created a Baronet 


May 5, 1620, the 18th of James I. He was High Sheriff 
of Norfolk, the 20th of the same King, 1622, and died 
1668. By Anne, daughter of Michael Smallpage, of

family, to his second son, Richard Berney de Reedham, 
Esq.; who was twice High Sheriff of Norfolk, 14 
Charles II, 1662, and also the 22d of the same King, 
1670. He married a daughter of Sir Jacob Gerrard, of 
Langford, in Norfolk, Bart., and by her had only one 
son and heir, Richard Berney de Reedham, Esq.; who 
was High Sheriff of Norfolk, 4 William III, 1692, and 
died the same year unmarried. He lies buried on the 
south side of the chancel, in the church at Reedham, 
with many of this family, of which he was the last who 
resided or enjoyed the estates there, after they had been 
in the possession of his ancestors for many generations, 
from the marriage of the above mentioned Thomas 
Berney, second son of John Berney de Witchingham, 
with Margaret, daughter and heiress of the said William 
de Reedham, in the reign of Ed. III. John Berney of 
Westwick, third son of Sir Richard, married Susan, 
daughter of John Stains, and left two sons, John and 
Richard. The eldest, John Berney, married first, 
Bridget, daughter of William Branthwayte, of Hethel,

VIII George Murray 


BARNEY, EDWARD, of Bradenham or Bradden- 
liam, county of Bucks, Eng- 
land, yeoman, in his will dated October 9, 1643, makes 
a bequest to his son Jacob "if he be living at time of 
my death and come over to England." 

Jacobs the emigrant ancestor of the family, was a 
son of Edward Barney. He was born in England, 1601, 
tailor, landed in Salem, 1634, was made a freeman 
May 14, 1634, and died in Salem April 28, 1673, aged 
seventy-two years. Administration was granted on 
his estate and an inventory taken June 2, 1673. John 
Cromwell is called his son-in-law and an heir to his 
estate. His wife, whose name was Elizabeth, survived 
him. He opposed the sentence of the General Court 
against those who petitioned for freer franchise. This 
indicates that he was more liberal in his religious views 
than were most of his contemporaries. At a town meet- 
ing held February 2, 1639, Jacob Barney was granted 
fifty acres of meadow and January 28, 1650, he was 
again granted fifty acres. Jacob Barney sold land to 
John Hardy previous to 1652, which was near Cold 
Spring at the head of South River, Essex County, 
Massachusetts, Registry of Deeds, Volume 1. Jacob 
Barney's name appears often in the early records of 
Salem as an appraiser of estates. A well known writer 
says of Jacob: "An intelligent merchant, often select- 
man, deputy to the General Court,— 1635-38-47-53- 
55, and served on the first grand jury that ever sat in 
this country." 


Children of Jacob' and Elizabeth Barney: 

1. Jacob, born in England, died February 12, 

1692-3, Rehoboth, Massachusetts. 

2. Sarah, married John Grover May 13, 1656, died 

November 26, 1662. 

3. Hannah, married John Cromwell of Salem. He 

died September, 1700. 

4. John, baptized in Salem December 15, 1639, 

died before April 28, 1673. John Barney 
must have died before his father, as in the 
settlement of his estate in 1673, Jacob junior 
is called "only son." The agreement is dated 
September 30, 1673, and is signed by the heirs — 
Jacob Barney, Elizabeth Barney (widow), 
John Cromwell, John Grover. 



"These grounds, the first place set apart in Salem 
for the burial of the dead and since 1637 known as the 
Burying Point, contains the graves of Governor Brad- 
street, Chief Justice Lynde and others, whose virtues, 
honors, courage and sagacity have nobly illustrated 
the history of Salem." 

II Jacob-, eldest son of Jacob* and Elizabeth Barney 

and the only son surviving childhood, was a Baptist 
minister and founded churches in Charlestown and 
Swansea, and is probably the one who in 1668, was one 
of the founders of the First Baptist Society of Boston. 
At a meeting of the seven men, April 5, 1652, he was 
granted thirty acres of land to be laid out with fifty 
acres formerly granted to his father. From Salem he 
removed not earlier than 1673, (for one of his children 
was born in Salem that year,) to Bristol, Rhode Island 
and Rehoboth, Massachusetts. Married first, by 
Major Hathorne in Salem, August 18, 1657, Hannah 
Johnson, who died June 5, 1659. Had son Josiah born 
1658. Settled in Rehoboth and Swansea in the 
year 1690. (There is no record found as yet who Josiah 
married nor is there a record of the children if any were 
born to him. It would seem possible, however, that 
William Barney, Baltimore, about 1695, ancestor of 
Commodore Joshua Barney, might have been a de- 
scendant of Josiah as the dates conform.) Married 
second by Captain Marshall, April 26, 1660, Ann Witt, 
daughter of Jonathan and Sarah Witt of Lynn (or 
Salem), who died in Rehoboth March 17, 1701. His 
will was made July 13, 1692, and probated February 20, 
1693, wife Ann executrix. He died February 12, 1693. 

Children of Jacob^: 

1. Josiah, born 1658. 

2. Hannah, born March 2, 1661, Salem, probably 

married Joshua Boynton, Newbury, Massa- 
chusetts, April 9, 1678, and died before 1681. 

3. Sarah, born September 12, 1661, Salem; mar- 

ried Henry Hampton.

Emmanuel Williams of Taunton, Mass., and some 
of his descendants 

Emmanuel' Williams was one of the early settlers 
of Taunton, Mass. All that is known of him is that he 
married Abigail Makepeace of Freetown, Mass., about 
1703. She was daughter of William and Abigail (Tis- 
dale) Makepeace of Freetown and Taunton, Mass. 
She was born November 25, 1686, and died about 1724. 
Emmanuel Williams died about 1719. An inventory 
of his estate was presented July 4, 1720, by Abigail 
Williams, administratrix. 

As a fire in 1838 consumed most of the Taunton town 
records and the early church records have disappeared, 
it is quite difficult to trace the early families. 

He was probably born at least as early as 1680 and 
perhaps earlier. 

Children, born in Taunton: 

1. John^, b. 1704; m. Elizabeth Caswell. 

2. Gershom, b. 1706; m. Aug. 2, 1729, Abigail 


3. Anna, b. 1708; m. William, son of John Barney.

of Freetown. 

5. Phebe, b. 1712. Not traced.

On the 28th of May, 1665, the Baptist Church in 
Charlestown, Massachusetts, was gathered and on the 
same day Thomas Gould, Thomas Osborne, Edward 
Drinker and John George were baptized. They joined 
with Richard Goodall, William Turner, Robert Lam- 
bert, Mary Goodall and Mary Newall, who has been 
of the same order in Old England. Before the year 
1669, Isaac Hull, John Farnum, Jacob Barney, John 
Russell, Junior, John Johnson, George Farlow, Ben- 
jamin Sweetser, Mrs. Sweetser and Ellis Callender were 
all connected with the same church. The General 
Court had previously passed a law forbidding any 
persons to form a church or to meet for religious service 
without the consent of the magistrates. The above 
first named persons had violated the law. They were 
accordingly brought before the Court of Assistants, 
and in September of the same year (1665) Gould, 
Turner, Osborne, Drinker and George were sentenced 
to be disfranchised (such of them as were free men), 
and upon conviction of their further proceeding therein, 
to be committed to prison. On the 17th of April, fol- 
lowing, they were again indicted before the County 
Court at Cambridge, for absenting themselves from 
public worship. Gould, Osborne and George were fined 
four pounds each, and for refusing to bind themselves 
for their appearance at the next Court of Assistants, 
were committed to prison. Finally, Gould, Turner 
and Farnum were banished from the jurisdiction, but 
it does not appear that either of them complied with 
the sentence.

A stone has recently been placed in the old 
graveyard on Main Street (Concord), in memory of 
one of the founders of this town, after sleeping for 
over two hundred years in an unmarked grave. 

The following is the inscription: 

"In memory of Nathaniel Billings, one of the earliest 
settlers in and supposed to be one of the founders 
of the town of Concord, died August 24, 1673, a 
patriot and a freeman. He was one of the signers 
to the Memorial of 1664 to the General Court, who 
pledged their lives and estates to maintain their 
charter rights. Erected August 24, 1890, by some 
of his descendants." 


Barney Genealogy 

Mrs. General C. H. Barney, 

Hackensack, N. J. 

This record was compiled from one belonging to 
Benniah Barney, brother of the first Daniel, by Mrs. 
Angeline Mason, eldest daughter of Mason Barney, 
in 1893 — when she was ninety years of age. She was a 
veritable encyclopedia of the family genealogy. Also 
supplemented from a Genealogical Dictionary pub- 
lished in Boston in 1883. 

I Jacob Barney, born in Wales, came from England 

and settled in Salem, Massachusetts, 1634. He 
seems to have been a prominent man in the 
Colonies, as it is a matter of record that he was 
Representative in 1635-38-47-53. He died in 
1673 at the age of seventy -two years. 

II Jacob, son of Jacob first, by a marriage with 

Hannah Thompson, had a son Josiah, and by a 
second marriage with Ann Witt had a son Joseph 
and many others. From these two half brothers, 
Josiah and Joseph, who settled in the towns of 
Rehoboth and Swansea, Massachusetts, in the 
year 1690, descended the families of Mason 
Barney, the noted ship-builder, Caleb (my 
grandfather) and Hiram Barney. The following 
is a list of the direct descendants from Joseph 
to Mason: 


III Joseph, born, 1673, married Constance Davis. 

IV Daniel, born 1697, married Alice or Freelove 


V Daniel, born 1736, married Rachel Bowen. 

VI Jonathan, born , married Elizabeth Mason. 

VTI Mason, born 1782, married Martha Smith; second 
wife, Polly Grant. 

Mason Barney was the noted ship-builder of 
Barneysville, Swansea, Massachusetts, who died in 1868. 

There are four generations now living following 

From Jacob to Caleb Barney and the Latter's 

I Jacob. 

II Jacob. 

III Josiah, born 1658 or 1659. I have put two records 

together to get this one, and here there seems to 
be a hiatus. One, or possibly two generations 
following Josiahi do not appear on the old 
record, and still are too far in the past to come 
on the later one. As Caleb descended from the 
elder of the half brothers, it is possible that one 
generation is lost, and highly probable that this 
Josiah might have had a son named for himself 
who was the father of Christopher. This is 
merely supposition, and in the Genealogical 
Dictionary, published in Boston in 1883, Caleb 
appears as the fifth generation from Jacob the 

first, and it is only reasonable to suppose that 
there must have been a generation or two not 
recorded. Caleb was in the same generation 
with Mason, being but eight years the elder. 

Josiah had three sons and one daughter, viz: 
Josiah, Israel, Christopher and Abigail Merry. 

IV Christopher was born in 1739 and married Experi- 

ence Smith. Experience died September, 1793, 
and Christopher, September 25, 1823. They had 
four sons, viz: William who had one child but 
left none, and died in 1849, aged seventy-seven 
years. Caleb married Elizabeth Wood and had 
seventeen children. Elizabeth died May 25, 
1839, and on October 23, 1840, Caleb married 
Roby Wood, a cousin of the first wife. Caleb 
died June 11, 1857, aged eighty-two years and 
six months, leaving thirteen children and his 
second wife, Roby, died February 24, 1885, aged 
ninety -five years and five months. 

Ambrose left four children. He died 1838, 
aged sixty years. Wheaton died when a child. 

V Caleb, son of Christopher and Experience Barney, 

born December 10, 1774, Elizabeth Barney {nee 
Wood) his wife, born May 3, 1776. Their

King Philip's War 

The capture of Mrs. Rowlandson was one of the 
saddest events of King Philip's War and called out 
unusual sympathy. The Indians held their prisoner 
for a ransom and she remained in captivity from Feb- 
ruary 10 to May 2. During this time she was compelled 
to travel from place to place with her Indian captors. 
Mrs. Rowlandson and her wounded babe were taken 
by their captors up the hill about a mile the first night. 
She was a close observer, and after her release wrote 
and published a detailed account of her captivity. 
The title of the book was "Mrs. Rowlandson's Re- 
moves." Soon after her capture, great efforts were 
made to ascertain the amount necessary for her re- 
lease. At last, Mr. John Hoar of Concord, with two 
friendly Indians, met the sachems near Wachusett 
Hill and on May 2 received and conducted Mrs. 
Rowlandson to Lancaster, and the next day to Boston. 
The account of the information that "the daughter 
was come in at Providence" and the reuniting of the 
family later, is extremely pathetic. James Hosmer, 
the second, married Sarah White, sister of Mrs. Row- 
landson, captured by the Indians at Lancaster in 
King Philip's War. 

The place where Mr. Hoar met the sachems is well 
identified, being marked by a large rock called "Re- 
demption Rock," a landmark near the ancient Indian 
trail between Lancaster and Wachusett, and in the 
present town of Princeton on the easterly side. The 
locality is known as "Everettville." In 1880 Honor- 
able George F. Hoar of Worcester, a lineal descendant 


of the chief actor in this transaction for the English, 
purchased the land containing this site and set it 
apart for memorial purposes, and caused the following 
inscription to be placed upon the face of the rock : 

Upon this rock May 2d, 1676, 

was made the agreement for the ransom 

of Mrs. Rowlandson of Lancaster, 

between the Indians and John Hoar of Concord. 

King Philip was with the Indians but 

refused his consent.

Early House Lot of the First 
James Hosmer 

An early house lot of the first James Hosmer, tradi- 
tion informs us, was at the Central village on the 
present Main street, near the Public Library. His 
next house lot was situated between the Assabet and 
the south branch of the Musketaquid rivers. 

It is stated that faint traces of the cellar are still 

Southwest of the paternal estate was the home of 
James Hosmer, Junior, who was killed by the In- 
dians at Sudbury in 1675. 

His house was near the present bridge of the Fitch- 
burg Railroad a little to the eastward of the depot at 
Concord Junction. Formerly a little stream near by 
afforded sufficient water power for a small flax mill 
which the Hosmers owned and operated. 

James Hosmer, Senior, added to his original land 
grant till his domain extended nearly to the "Nine 
Acres," and included various detached and outlying 
parcels of land. His grave is among many of his 
contemporaries in the Hill Burying Ground. 


The site of the ancient homestead is now grass 
grown; only an earth dent remaining to identify it. 
But the associations to those who are conversant 
with the surroimdings are eloquently suggestive, and 
remind one of distant years when the elder James 
Hosmer drove his cattle to pasture and perhaps 
plodded on from his early morning task to raise the 
gate of his little flax mill, thereby to furnish the pre- 
pared material for the fine linen of the townsfolk. 


The Old North Bridge at Concord 

The old North Bridge spans the little stream where 
the minute-men of Concord faced the British grena- 
diers on the 19th of April, 1775. The plain granite 
monument which stands near it was erected in 1836, 
as an inscription upon it declares, "In gratitude to 
God and in the love of freedom." A poem by Ralph 
Waldo Emerson recited on the day the monument 
was dedicated, has become immortal: 

By the rude bridge that arched the flood, 
Their flag to April's breeze unfurled. 
Here once the embattled farmers stood, 
And fired the shot heard round the world. 

The foe long since in silence slept; 

Alike the conqueror silent sleeps; 
And Time the ruined bridge has swept 

Down the dark stream which seaward creeps. 

On this green bank, by this soft stream. 

We set to-day a votive stone; 
That memory may their deed redeem, 

When, like oiu- sires, our sons are gone. 


Spirit, that made those heroes dare 
To die, and leave their children free, 

Bid Time and Nature gently spare 
The shaft we raise to them and thee. 

The granite monimient stands on the site of the 
bridge from which the English soldiers fired on the 

The slain Americans were Captain Isaac Davis 
and Abner Hosmer of the Acton minute-men. 
(Abner Hosmer was great great-uncle of Everett 
Hosmer Barney.) 

On the American side there has been erected a 
statue representing "The Minute-Man." 

Some of the red-coats who fell in the historic skir- 
mish are buried near the bridge. In 1875, these un- 
known and nameless warriors received recognition 
when, on a stone forming a part of the wall near by, 
were cut the words: "Grave of British Soldiers."
