John Barnard and Jane Bradley family 

John Barnard was born in England.  John had a brother named Edward Barnard. Jane Bradley was the daughter of William Bradley.   In 1744 John Barnard was granted 500 acres on Wilmington Island, Chatham county, Georgia. It was on this land that John and Jane's children were born and raised. In 1755 and 1756 John was granted additional acreage on Wilmington Island. John died "Sep. 7, 1757" in Chatham county, Georgia.  Jane died in October 1794 on Wilmington Island, Chatham county, Georgia.

John Barnard "came to Savannah, Georgia about 1743 in command of a Regiment called the 'Rangers' and held commission till his death."   In January 1747 John became bound to William Bradley of Westminster, London, England for 500 to be paid July 20, 1747 under the penal sum of 1000.  In 1748 John acted as attorney for William Bradley regarding lots in Savannah.  Evidently the 500 was never paid and in 1755 in the court of Pleas in the province of Georgia William Bradley won a judgment against John for 1000 and 63 shillings.      One of John's tracks of land comprising 600 acres was later seized and sold in 1760 for the non payment of the debt to William Bradley.
