My Web site has information about all the Barwis/e families that I know of. It's about 3 or 4 thousand persons on www.mantey.co.uk I am always interested in hearing more about families after they leave the UK. Essentially it has become more and more apparent that every Barwis/e can be traced back to one family root. I modify the Barwis mailing list on RootsWeb and intend at some point to develop a nucleus for a One Name Society for the family. I am currently running a project to collect all the Barwise wills in Cumberland with the intention of posting them with a family group sheet for each one on the Web.
