Re: Bareford name in UK, 1800's and before
Earliest ancestor my branch of family is
Joseph Barefoot(died 1795) from Horningsea
married to Susannah Furbank 1734.Their eldest son also Joseph married Ann Bradwell in Swaffham Bulbeck (1760).The family remained in Swaffham Bulbeck until the death
of my grandmother. The name seems to have been mis-spelt Barefoot/Barfoot in Parish Registers until the Cambridgeshire census in 1851 when three brothers registered at birth as Barefoot are recorded as Bareford.I have all the details of the Swaffham Bulbeck family if your interested in that branch.
