BARNARD

Thomas Barnard, the first apparently of that surname in America, came to this country about 1650. He settled in Salisbury but appears to have been one of those who founded the new town of Amesbury. He never removed to Nantucket. He was brother to Robert who is named among the first ten purchasers and selected by Robert as his partner. His son Nathaniel came to Nantucket and assumed his father's interests. Robert married Joanna Harvey and came to Nantucket in 1663. They had but one son, John, who married, (February 26, 1668) Bethiah Folger, daughter of Peter. He and his wife were drowned, with Isaac Coleman and an Indian, June 6. 1669, when returning with Eleazer Folger in a canoe from Marthas Vineyard, where they had been to purchase some furniture. Robert and Joanna had one daughter, Mary, who married her cousin Nathaniel, son of Thomas.

Mr. Worth says of Nathaniel Barnard--"He was very prominent in Town and public affairs, having been chosen many times to serve in all the important offices. He was a trader, and the court records show that he was fined in 1709 for selling liquor to the Indians."
Regarding his home Mr. Worth says- "East of the Elihu Coleman house is the Mill-Brook, and a short distance further east, on the south side of the road near a cluster of willow trees, was once a house which was the homestead of Thomas Barnard. Directly across the road lived Nathaniel Barnard. The present road was merely a path for many years later. The house lot of Thomas Barnard on which the house of Nathaniel was located, was about 1000 feet square, and southwest of it was the lot of Robert Barnard. These lots extended northeast and southwest, and comprised twenty acres each. The house of Robert cannot be exactly located, neither can the bounds of the lots be identified. But the high land between the Mill-Brook swamp and the Indian boundary line was substantially comprised within the two Barnard lots."
