  10. William BARNES possibly born c1817

    Baptised 28 October 1868, William BARNES, son of Joseph and Emma BARNES. Abode South Kyme. Occupation - Farmer. There is a note which looks to say that William is 49 years, so I'm not sure if the vicar means that farmer is William's occupation or Joseph's.
