History of Essex Co.: Amesbury 1658 January 1st Thomas Barnard and John Weed were chosen for ordering the prudential affairs of the Company and the extent of their power is according to the prudential men chosen last year the men being chosen for ye yeare ensuing. At this meeting it was decided to lay the great swamp out in lots and Thomas Barnard, John Hoyt, and John Weed were ordered to measure it and receive two shillings and six pence a day for their work from those who had the lot. A way was to be reserved next Powow River forty rods wide for the use of the plantation. This order was not carried into effect until 1664. All had plenty of wood and there was no hurry about dividing this section. January 25th Thomas Barnard and John Weed were chosen standing lot layers and served in that capacity a great many years. Small lota were given to the freemen at almost every meeting and at this meeting John Weed received ten acres at the Buttonwood now owned by Charles Rowell and occupied by his new residence.

Early Settlers of Nantucket: Their Associates and Descendants: We find on record that in July of 1659 a deed given by Thomas Mayhew confirming the sale of island of Nantucket to nine purchasers viz Tristram Coffin, Richard Swain or Swayne, Peter Coffin, Stephen Greenleaf, William Pike, Thomas Macy, Thomas Barnard, Christopher Husse,t John Swain or Swayne. // Thomas Barnard who settled in America about 1650 was one of the purchasers of Nantucket in 1659 and transferred one half of his interest to his brother Robert Barnard. In Hoyt's The Old Families of Salisbury and Ames bury page 13 among signatures to Articles of Agreement Between the Inhabitants of the Old Town and those of the New Town May 1 1654 we find Thomas Barnard, Phillip Challis, Thomas Macy, John Severance and others. Page 14 under Divisions of Land 1654 Thomas Barnard, Phillip Challis, Thomas Macy and others, and among Amesbury Commoners in 1667 8 Thomas Barnard Sr and Jr and Lt Phillip Challis Pages 20 and 21 Jn Barnard and Tho Barnard are named among citizens taking Oath of Allegiance Eamsbery December 20 1677 Thomas Barnard is named as one of the Brethren of Ye Church Page 49 Thomas Barnard or Barnett of Salisbury and Amesbury planter or husbandman born about 1612 probably a brother of Robert received land in the first division 1640 and 1643 was one of the first settlers of Amesbury received land there at various times and a township for one of his sons in 1660. His name appears in nearly all the early lists down to 1672. He married Helen or Eleanor. The only explanation for the statement in an old record that Thomas Barnard died abroad lies in the fact that among old fashioned people of Nantucket going out to an afternoon tea was going abroad. Usually anywhere away from the island was off or off island. This particular recorder certainly meant off island when he wrote Thomas died abroad as the records of Salisbury say he was killed by Indians about 1677. His widow Eleanor Barnard administered on his estate. When it was settled in 1679 there were nine children. It is believed that some of these were children in law. In a list of inhabitants applying for Amesbury Meeting House seats July 1667 is found the name of Goodwife Barnard. Eleanor Barnard widow of Thomas married July 19th 1681 George Little of Newbury. She died November 27th 1694.
