|Birth: ||1598, England|
|Death: ||May, 1664|
Born about 1598 (aged 36 in 1634). Came to Massachusetts Bay in 1634 on the "Francis." First settled in Cambridge MA; moved to Hartford in 1636 & Hadley in 1659. Buried at Hadley 23 May 1664.
Married by 1634, Mary Stace. She died by 28 Mar 1665. (The parish register of Burnham, Essex, includes the burial of "Daniel Stace" on 3 Mar 1648/9 & of William Stace on 3 Dec 1660. The Will of Daniel Stace dated 4 Feb 1648/9, makes bequests to his children, & does not name any other relatives.
The largest bequests in the will of John Barnard were to his sister Mary Bedient & her children, & to his kinsman Henry Hayward & his children. Henry Hayward was a generation younger Than John Barnard (aged 7 in 1635), so if this pattern of bequests was intended to indicate and equal degree of kinsip, then we would expect that Henry Hayward was a nephew of John Barnard or John's wife.
