                   Mary Ann Barnes was born 5th January 1798 born on the 5th February 1798, at High Fell End, Witherslack, Westmorland,
                   baptised 4th March 1798 at Witherslack, the daughter of Thomas Barnes & Jennet nee Harrison.

                   Her parents were married;
                         Thomas Barnes to Jennet Harrison on the 13th January 1791 at Heversham, Westmorland [LDS], 3.7 miles WNW of Witherslack .  
 
                   The second born to her father Thomas Barnes of Witherslack, Mary Ann had four siblings;
                         James Barnes born 17th March, 1796, baptised 18th March 1796, the son of Thomas & Jennet, at Witherslack, Westmorland [LDS]
                         Mary Ann fits in here 1798.
                   A name change for Jennet or Thomas Barnes remarried; 
                         Anthony Barnes born 10th April 1799, baptised 5th May 1799, the son of Thomas & Jane, at Witherslack, Westmorland [LDS]
                         Sarah Barnes born 19th May 1801, baptised 14th June 1801, the son of Thomas & Jane, at Witherslack, Westmorland [LDS]
                         Jinny Barnes born 18th Jan. 1803, baptised 22nd Jan. 1803, the daughter of Thomas & Jane, at Witherslack, Westmorland [LDS]
                         Agnes Barnes born 26th Aug. 1805, baptised 29th Sept. 1805, the daughter of Thomas & Jane, at Witherslack, Westmorland [LDS]

                  In view that Mary Ann married in London in 1817, the family may have moved there after 1805.  In any case the journey from 
                  Witherslack to London some 222 miles SSE [as the crow flies] by coach would have been an arduous one.

                          I have Mary Ann's mother as Jane Harrison the daughter of Anthony & Elizabeth christened at Witherslack on 6 Oct 1765 
                          (I had thought that Mary Ann had named her second son after her grandfather - who I believe was also a Tailor, which might
                          explain how she met William Scard also a Tailor)
