      From the above:


      think that at this point I should say something about the only 19th century Barnett emigrant that is known at this time. He was Joseph Barnett, the uncle of Walter. He was born on the 26th of May 1843 and married Jane Harper in 1862, they had two children, Thomas William, born1864, and Sarah Ann, born 1865. Both these children died in 1865. Their marriage was short lived because on the 4th of December 1870 Jane also died.

      After the death of Jane, Joseph moved into Vine Cottages and stayed with his father, old Joseph. It was at this time that young Joseph started courting Mary Ann Duncombe culminating in their marriage on the 27th June 1871 in Parish Church of Dowsby, Lincolnshire.

      On the 5th November 1872 Mary Ann Barnett gave birth to her first born, Annie, and on the 8th July 1874 she gave birth to her second child, Herbert. It was shortly after this that they applied for assisted passage to emigrate to Canada. This was eventually arranged, so in the Spring of 1875 Joseph and Mary Ann Barnett sailed for their new life in North America. This was to be the start of a dynasty of Barnetts who are still living in and around Oxford County, Ontario, Canada, and some of Joseph's descendants have settled in the USA.

      Below is an example of the type of procedure that would have occurred for emigration from 18th century Great Barford:

      Notice of Meeting to consent to raising or borrowing Money for Emigration purposes. Hawnes Parish. Amphill Union. Bedford County.

      "Notice is hereby given that a Meeting of the Owners of Property in this parish legally entitled to vote, in person, or by proxy, and of the Ratepayers therein will be held at the School Room Church End in this parish on Thursday the thirteenth day of January next at Ten in the forenoon for tbe purpose of considering whether any and what Sum or Sums of money, not exceeding half the Average yearly Poor Rate for the three years now last past, shall be raised or borrowed as a fund. for defraying the expenses of the Emigration of poor persons having settlements in this Parish, and being willing to emigrate and of giving directions for raising or borrowing such Sum or Sums to be paid out of or charged upon the Rates raised or to be raised for the Relief of the Poor in the Parish, and to be applied under and according to such rules, orders, and regulations, as the Commissioners for administering the Laws for Relief of the Poor in England, shall in that behalf direct. Dated this Eighth day of January 1848."

      The results of a meeting similar to the above would have accumulated the following funds and the eventual outlay for three families emigrating to Ontario in 1874:
