Barnes Family


Cemeteries and views at St Buryan, Cornwall

West Penwith Map  c1845

Some of the Barnes family can be seen in the registers of Madron, Paul, Gulval and Ludgvan.

Newlyn is famous for its painters - one being Stanhope Forbes who immortilised my great-grandmother's son, Walter Barnes, in a portrait (oils on canvass) as they were very good friends and shared a love of music.

In 1931, at Penzance Walter Barnes - Pen Ylow (Chief of Music) - was made a Bard of the Cornish Gorseth for services to music in Cornwall.

If you are related to the Barn(e)s family, I would like to hear from you. I know, from my own research, that family links can be found in Australia, New Zealand and USA.
