        Thomas Barnes, Hartford, 1639, a "proprietor by the town's courtesy," Feb., 1639-40, having six acres allotted to him. He lived on the corner of the highways now Albany Avenue and High St. He served in the Pequot War, 1637 ; granted fifty acres for his services, 1671. He removed to Farmington; sergeant of the trainband there, 1651; joined Farmington church about Jan. 30, 1652-3. His wife, Mary, was the dau. of Thomas Andrus, or Andrews, of Farmington. He d. about 1689 ; will dated June 9, 1688.

        From Barnes - The Westward Migration of One Line of the Descendants of the Thomas Barnes of Hartford and Farmington, Connecticut
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        On Sept. 2, 1635 at the Port of London, England, 101 passengers, including Thomas Barnes age 20, boarded a ship. (In 1634 the Archbishop Laud of London began a reign of terror, and Capt. Johnson took 21,200 persons the year following). If this was Thomas Barnes of Hartford and Farmington, he was b. c. 1615 probably in Essex Co., England.

        In 1965 I visited the site of the Thomas Barnes property in the town of Farmington. I was surprised to find the home built in 1680 still standing, and in good repair. It stands just southwest of the cemetery, back from the street, hidden from view by a "new" house built in 1785. Several fine homes stand on the rest of the property.

        [In 2003, Ann Marr visited the site. Main Street, Farmington is very well kept - the inhabitants obviously take great pride in their historic homes. Facing the cemetery entrance, the house refered to above is to the right, next door to the cemetery.]

        From the Farmington Library
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        The land for the cemetery was given by Thomas Barnes to the town for a burying ground in 1661: in 1687 additional land was donated for the same purpose. It is called Momento Mori Cemetery.

        "The earliest land record we find for Thomas Barnes is in 1650, when he had 10 acres on which his dwelling house with out-houses, barns, yards and gardens stood, on Town Path 'through which a highway lyeth, with the river on the west, Richard Brownson's land on the east, John Tayllcots land south and Moses Ventrus land north.'

        When Joseph Barnes sold the family homestead to Samuel Hooker, Jr., in 1710 it was bounded on the north by the burying ground, showing that Thomas Barnes lived on the east side of the street, about where Mrs. Stephen Lawrence now lives.

        ... Although library records indicate that Thomas Barnes built the house on this property around 1680, records quoted on the previous page show that a house was already standing on this land in 1650. What happened to the earlier house is not known.

        Although Thomas Barnes died in 1681, records indicate that title was not offically passed to his son Joseph until in 1687."

        The Barnes-Mix House, as the property is known, is a five-bay Georgian style building. "The main block of this house was built around 1785 by Squire John Mix, while a portion of the rear ell may date from 1685. The first house to stand on this lot was built by Joseph Barnes around 1685 shortly after his marriage to Abigail Gibbs. He received 'the parcel on which his dwelling house now standeth' from his brother, Benjamin Barnes in 1687."

        The 1685 ell is small by today's standards, being perhaps the size of a one-car garage, and the roof sags in the middle like a swayback horse. From the look of it, the current owners are busy this summer scraping paint preparatory to repainting the building.]

        From Colony Records

        October 12, 1669 Thomas Barns is on a list of Freemen of Farmington.

        From Barnes Genealogies
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        From Colonial Records
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        At a session of the General court held in Hartford, Oct. 6, 1651, Thomas Barnes is confirmed Sergeant.

        The following is a copy of the declaration in the "Oath of Fidelity" which Thomas Barnes, with about 360 other citizens, took and subscribed to when Theophilus Eaton was inagurated governor of Connecticut:

        "I ----- doe acknowledge myself to be subject to the government thereoff, and doe sweare be the great and dreadful name of the ever living God. to be true and faithful unto the same, and doe submit both my person and whole estate thereunto."

        While neither the Conn. Constitution or Oath of Fidelity made any mention of the king of England or of the English company which held the royal grant of the lands of Conn.; it indicated a purpose to adhere to the colonial constitution and government, regardless of consequences. This was the first move made for American independence of British rule.

        From Records of Farmington in Connecticut, Copied by the late Hon. Nathaniel Goodwin of Hartford; Communicated by Daniel Goodwin, Esquire.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        About the 30th day of January, 1652, Nathaniel Kellogg and his wife, John Steele, John Stanley, Thomas Newell and Thomas Barnes was also joined to the Congregation.

        Elizabeth Barnes, daughter of Thomas Barnes, baptized July 21, 1695

        From Thomas Barnes of Hartford, Connecticut
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        We do not have the exact date Thomas Barnes of Hartford and Farmington came to the New World. A careful examination indicates that, unlike most of the settlers of Hartford, he did not come from Newtown, now Cambridge, Massachusetts. The records are quite complete for checking this fact. It is believed he set sail from England to the West Indes on the second of September, 1635 on the ship William and John and transported to St. Christophers or St. Kitts. It is believed he may have arrieved in New England on one of those trading schooners which carried the products of colonial New England to the West Indies and returned with basic necessities for colonial existence - namely, rum and molasses...

        The first definite knowledge of Thomas Barnes of Hartford is the fact that he took part in the Pequot War which commenced in 1636. For this service he received an allotment of land in Soldier's Field, so called, in Hartford. Later in life he received from the General Court of 1671 fifty acres as an additional bonus for his services in the Pequot struggle...

        The residence site of Thomas Barnes in Hartford was a plot of six acres situated at what is now the corner of Albany Avenue and High Street. His title to this land first appears of record in 1640. He remained in Hartford only six years. Possibly he was not satisifed with his position in that community. He was not an original proprietor of Hartford but owned land by what was known as "courtesy right." "Inhabitance as were Granted lotts to have onely at the Townes Courtesie with liberty to fetch wood & keepe Swine or Cowes By proportion on the Common."

        It is probable that economic reasons weighed more heavily with Thomas Barnes when he decided to remove to the Tunxis Valley...

        With relatively few exceptions, the relations between the colonial settlers of Farminton and the Tunxis Indians were peaceful... in 1651 the General Court appointed Thomas Barnes a sergeant of the Farmington Training Band... his sons, Joseph and Benjamin, took part in this conflict [King Philip's War], later receiving grants for their services...

        Farmington, of which Thomas Barnes was one of the proprietors, comprised what are are now the towns of Farmington, Bristol, Southington, New Britain, Plainville, Burlington and Avon. In all, there were eighty-four proprietors in early Farmington, and most of them settled on what is now Main Street, which was the first thoroughfare through the colonial village... all the original holdings ran from the street to the river... The residence of Thomas Barnes was nearly opposite the old cemetery now seen on Main Street, Farmington. Although the village land grants on Main Street, Farmington, were limited in acreage, none of the eighty-four original proprietors lacked sufficient land. Everyone, including Thomas Barnes, received various grants in all the present towns which originally were included within the boundaries of Farmington.

        [The earliest mention of Bristol is in the town records of Farmington, when Thomas Barnes, among others, was granted land in Poland. Tradition is that the name Poland came from an Indian who lived on the bank of the stream there.]

        Part of the land of Thomas Barnes was situated in what was first known as Pole-land, later abbreviated to Poland. This was the first name for the section now known as Bristol. It was so named by coopers who were looking for hoop-poles... We may assume that section termed Pole-land; and contained an unusually abundant supply of oak and hickory, for these were the favorite woods of colonial coopers.

        In the settlement of Farmington, Thomas Barnes was a Freeman, or Proprietor. This must have made life much more satisfactory than the life he found in Hartford. Outside of his military office, we do not find the name of Thomas Barnes mentioned in the early town offices of Farmington. Probably this is due to the fact that, like many a first immigrant, he was apparently illiterate. At least, in two original documents, Thomas signed his name with an "X".

        The records of the Farmington Church show that Thomas Barnes was the twentieth member to join that congregation.

        ...The second original document of Thomas Barnes of Farmington that has come down to us is his will. So far as we know, this document is the only one in which the Barnes name is spelled "Barens." In the bequests to his son, Ebenezer, we find reference to land at Rattle-Snake Hill. This today bears the title of Rattlesnake Mountain and is that particular hill of the Talcott range which on its northern side is crossed by the so-called Farmington cut-off.

        .... Also there were children of the second marriage. Their birthdates are not preserved and the given names of only two, Thomas and Ebenezer, are even approximately known. But the will of their grandmother, Widow Mary Andres, shows that there were two or more daughters, whose given names are no longer known. Without going into more detail, suffice it to set up that the wills of Thomas Barnes and John Andrews give ground for further deductions, from which it is inferred that Thomas Junior was born about 1667 and Ebenezer about 1676. It was upon these sons, and Joseph, that Father Thomas, past 70, would then have to depend in emergencies and to see that the home place was kept up. Quite possibly their two youngest sons, together with Father Thomas and Mother Mary, and any unmarried daughters, made up the family table as long as the old man lived. Perhaps Joseph and his young wife, with their two or three little children, were there, too, but assubably Joseph's family had a separate house nearby, perhaps across the street.

        Father Thomas' last will, or more technically his Deed of Gift, tends to support these further inferences...
        The handwriting used in preparing the body of the original deed is the same as that of Witness John Standley, Sr. That of the other witness, John Hooker, is the same as that used in helping Thomas sign by mark.

        From Thomas Barns and John Andrews of Farmington, Conn.
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        An original document in my possession is a contract of ante-nuptial agreement made between Thomas Barns of Farmington and his prospective father-in-law, John Andrews of the same town. It reveals the identity of the second wife of Thomas Barns and gives details of interest. We offer below a verbatim copy, following the atrocious spelling and occsaional repetition of words which occur in the original document. It is believed the document will be found valuable, not only for the genealogical information contained in it, but as an example of the type of marriage contract often made in the Seventeenth Century.

        From Genealogy of the Puritans
        ---------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------
        Barnes, Thomas resided quite in the north-west part of the village in Hartford, in 1640, on land bounded north-east by the road to the cow pasture, easterly on the road to Hon. Matthew Allyn's land, westerly by Thomas Upson. He was one of the brave soldiers in the Pequot battle in 1637. He settled first in Hartford, and removed to Farmington in its early settlement, where he died in 1689 or '91. He was an original proprietor in Hartford, and had six acres of land allotted to him, in the land division of Hartford, in 1639-- land land distributed to him east of the river in 1663. His wife Mary __. He disposed of his estate by deeds in 1688: children Thomas, Ebenezer, and he had older children he had previously provided for; Thomas Jr., who settled and died at Middletown, had children, John, Daniel, Thomas, Mercy Jacobs, Martha, Elizabeth, son Maibe, and Abigail. He died June 10, 1691; wife Elizabeth, died 1694.

        It was written prior to the corruption of the BARNES Family lines from Thomas Barnes of Hartford and Farmington, Connecticut. This book was also written prior to any that are "popped out of a computer" using FTM. It is a scholarly work and is well researched in addition to being heavily documented.

        Preface (part)
        SOME explanatory introduction to so copious a work, as the following, will naturally be required; but it may be short. In 1829 was published, by John Farmer, a Genealogical Register of the first settlers of New England. Beside the five classes of persons prominent, as Governors, Deputy-Governors, Assistants, ministers in all the Colonies, and representatives in that of Massachusetts, down to 1692, it embraced graduates of Harvard College to 1662, members of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company, as also freemen admitted in Massachusetts, alone, to this latter date, with many early inhabitants of other parts of New England and Long Island from 1620 to 1675. Extensive as was the plan of that volume, the author had in contemplation, as explained in his preface, calling it "an introduction to a biographical and genealogical dictionary, "a more ambitious work, that should comprehend sketches of individuals known in the annals of New England, and "a continuation of eminent persons to the present time." Much too vast a project that appeared to me; and the fixing of an absolute limit, like 1692 (the era of arrival of the new charter), for admission of any family stocks, seemed more judicious.
