It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

Change the two party system
so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

: Berney Barney of Gunton, Berney Barney of Reedham, Barney of Wichingham
1 Visitation 1563+1589+1613 spells the family name "Barney" but Visitation 1664, BP1934 & BLG1886 show it as "Berney".
2 BP1934 reports that the family is thought to be of Saxon or Norse origin. It starts with Sir Thomas who married Margaret, heiress of Reedham "whither he removed from Witchingham in the time of Edward III". From this we presume that the later Barneys/Berneys of Wichingham were of the same family as those of Reedham.
Space for your banner!

Be27=21. Margaret Barney possibly of this generation b about 1380
m. John Mawtby
BP1934 starts with the above Sir Thomas who married Margaret, heiress of Reedham "whither he removed from Witchingham in the time of Edward III". From this we presume that the later Barneys/Berneys of Wichingham were of the same family. Noting that Visitation Norfolk, 1563, Sowthwell shows the Alice who married John Barney of Redeham as sister of the Amy who married Rafe Barney of Wychingham, which gives us a rough fix on the generations, we presume to show the following Sir Thomas, the first mentioned in the entry on the Barneys of Wichingham, as younger son of the above Sir Thomas. It should be noted that Visitation does not show any connection between the following and the above whilst BP1934 makes no mention at all of the following family.
Be28-2. Sir Thomas Barney

Be28-2-1 Sir Robert Barney of Wichingham

m. Margaret Walcott dau of Sir Walter Walcott of Walcott & Gunton
i. John Barney of Wichingham and Gunton
m. _ Allington dau of Sir Robert Allington
a. Robert or Rafe Barney of Wichingham
Visitation Barney identifies Robert's wife as Amy, dau of Sir Robert Southwell. As mentioned above, Visitation Norfolk, 1563, Sowthwell shows an Amy as married to Rafe Barney of Wychingham, whom we presume to be this Robert, as follows. We have seen on a web site reference to Ralph, brother/heir of Robert Berney of Gunton, so we presume that there was/is some confusion between the brothers.

1 Robert Barney of Wichingham
