4. John Barns-Graham (b 1877, d 03.08.1954, to New Zealand) had issue
  John, founder of the New Zealand branch of BGs, was the first person actually born with the family name of Barns-Graham (his elder brothers and sister were born 'Graham' but had their family name changed when very young) despite the fact that the marriage which eventually led to the joining of the two names (between Patrick Graham, 3rd of Lymekilns, and Margaret Urie, niece of John Barns, 4th of Kirkhill) had taken place in 1759, some 118 years before his birth. This 'delay' was because, as shown on Barns1 and Graham06, the entailed estate of Kirkhill (which carried the Barns name with it) passed to various cousins before it came to this branch.
