Narrative and Notes

George BARN(E)S married Peggy COUNCILL (or COUNSELL) in August 1771. They went on to christen 10 children between 1773 and 1789, assuming that these included Ann and Mary who were baptized in Ribchester, just across the River Ribble.

When George christened Agnes in 1778 he was living in Mellor.

There are several George BARN(E)S baptized in/around Blackburn during the 1730s and 1740s, none of which stand out in terms of location:

Brindle is about 5 miles south of Samlesbury, where George and Margaret were living when they married.
