His maternal family moved to Baltimore in the 1940s from a very old family called Blackistons who left England in 1668 to escape persecution by King Charles II, whose father was executed. His father King Charles I's death warrant was signed by Judge John Blackiston and thus his family were persecuted when his son returned to the throne and ouster of Cromwell. The Blackiston family have lived in Kent Co, MD since that time over 300 years. His paternal family were of a mix of English, German, and Polish ancestry. His grandfather Joseph Sidney F. Barnhouser met and knew Babe Ruth during his time at the St. Mary's Industrial Orphanage. His earliest immigrant Barnhouser ancestor was Capt. Richard Barnehouse who arrived in America in 1640 from Bristol England where his ancestors had been long-time mariners of the open seas. Richard settled in America to escape the despotic reign of Oliver Cromwell. In his youth, Richard Barnehouse had been a captive in Algiers and recounted his story in the English High Court of Admiralty after his release, thus the Barnhouser family has been in America for over 300 years as well.
