Re: Family of DAVID BARNETT b 1831 & ANNA SAMUEL b 1837 Russian Poland #poland

Barry Clarke

I have not yet done any deep research on the BARNETT branch of my family (my grandmother was a Barnett). The first Barnett I am aware of who emigrated from Russia/Poland is JOSEPH BARNETT around 1822. On the 1841 and subsequent censuses, he and other BARNETTS were in South Wales. Certainly, in the 1900s some BARNETTS lived in Birmingham too. Names you give are names in my family too, but the dates and relationships don't match. I have an ESTHER DAVIS whose daughter LOUISA  married my second-great-grandfather HENRY BARNETT (JOSEPH BARNETT'S son). They had a son DAVID BARNETT and a BARNET BARNETT (aka BENNETT BARNETT), who seems to have died at 6 or 7 years old. Whether or not JOSEPH had siblings who emigrated to the UK, and perhaps not to Wales, I don't know. If yes, then there may be a family match. I will keep this thread on file for when I get around to researching the BARNETTS, and of course let you know if I discover a potential link.

I have a question for you or ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH BARNETTS ... Do you have any ideas as to the RUSSIAN/POLISH/HEBREW names BARNETT may have come from?

Thank you,
