I am looking for anyone that maybe have a Dorset - Newfoundland connection, with the surname Barnes.
I have an ancestor, John Barnes that married Louisa Tucker in 1821, Carbonear, Newfoundland. Louisa Tucker was from Harbour Grace, Newfoundland. John Barnes was from Wimborne, Dorset. That is all I have. No parents names, no date of birth (or place of birth). Being a common name it's making research difficult.
I'm interested in anyone that is researching the Barnes family from that area of Dorset, or any tips on where I should look for records of ships that went to Newfoundland around the 1820 time line.
