My Barnard Ancestors
My Barnard ancestors were mainly Anglican clergymen. Between the 17th and 20th centuries there were 5 consecutive generations of ordained ministers, my father being the first to break from the tradition (though actually his father, Rev. Percy Mordaunt Barnard (1868-1941) resigned from the church in 1906 after losing his faith, and became an antiquarian bookseller in Tunbridge Wells). Most were also classical scholars, and were educated at Cambridge University.
This tree shows the Barnard family schematically; it is derived from several sources, and further details will be added when time permits.
