Families covered: Barlow of Barlow (Lancashire)

(1) Barlow in Lancashire appears to have produced more than one family of that name, both being established for many generations. We show one below and another on Barlow01 but note that it is possible that we will find a connection between them in due course. Both of those families appear to have suffered in Tudor times, apparently at least in part due to the religious disputes of those times.
(2) The family name was normally spelled "Barlow" but "Barley" was also quite common, with "Berley" an occasional variation.
(3) Data obtained from 'various web sites' is shown in italics.
