Barns

Barnes is an English surname with locational or occupational origins. It may be derived from the Old English "bern" meaning "barn", for someone who lived or worked there. Or it may be derived from Old English "beorn", meaning "warrior", a name bestowed also on the warrior's son or servant; "bairn" in Middle English means "small child".

In Barnes family history, the family seat (feudal manor) in Cambridgeshire dates from 1066, when they were granted lands by the Duke of Normandy.

Barnes was one of the earliest emigrants in America, in Virginia by 1608.

Variations of the name in Barnes genealogy include Barnis, Berner, Bernes, and Bernys.
