Families covered: Barneby of Barneby (Barnby of Barnby Hall)
[This page was first launched on 26.10.07 as Draft. It was moved here following review & expansion using Hunter & Foster.]

(1) Hunter & Foster spell the family name 'Barnby', without the e. Somewhat arbitrarily, we name the page using 'Barneby' as that, along with Barnaby, appears to be more used in modern times.
(2) Commoners (vol IV, 'Barneby of Brockhampton'), a source used for Barneby01, reports that that family was "probably a younger branch of the ancient family of Barnby, of Barnby Hall, in the parish of Calthorne, in the East Riding of (Yorkshire), where they continued to flourish till the last century, when they expired in co-heirs."
(3) Hunter identifies the arms of this family as "Or, a lion rampant sable powdered with escallop shells argent". Foster identifies the arms, quartered with those of Nuthill, as "Or, a lion rampant sable charged with 2 escallops argent".
