Spouse: William BARNES. William BARNES and Rachel (BARNES) were married about 1637. Children were: Mary BARNES, Deborah BARNES, Rachel BARNES, Sarah BARNES.


From Savage:

WILLIAM, Salisbury 1610, freem. 2 June 1641, by w. Rachel had Mary, wh. m. 23 June 1659, sec. John Hoyt; William, wh. d. 11 June 1648; Hannah, b. 25 Jan. 1644; Deborah, 1 Apr. 1646; Jonathan, 1 Apr. 1648; Rachel, 30 Apr. 1649, wh. m. 2 Mar. 1668 or 9 (both dates being giv.), Thomas Sargent; Sarah, wh. m. 8 Sept. 1670, Thomas Rowell, and next, 26 Oct. 1676, John, or more prob. Thomas Harvey, as the Amesbury rec. gives the name; and Rebecca, wh. m. Moses Morrill. Deborah m. 19 Dec. 1663, Samuel Davis. He was one of the first sett. of Amesbury a. 1654. It has been thot. that he is the man in the list of passengers by the Globe from London for Virginia, 1635, and the names of William Brown, and Richard Wells in the same list are seen, both, also, found at Salisbury. But those surnames are so frequent on both sides of the ocean, that the argument must not be pressed too far. Some persons might, at that time, think it easy to go from one part of America to another; but most of those for Virginia were not puritans, and all wh. would come to New Eng. especially from London, easily gained direct, instead of circuitous passage. Of this name, includ. those spelt without e, Farmer, in 1834, count. seven gr. at Yale, five at Harv. and five at other N. E. coll.
