Sir William Garrard, lord mayor of London 1555-1556, and father of Anne, wife of Sir George Barne, the younger, was knighted in 1555
Bhaw's Knights of England; 1906; 11; 69). He was a member of the Haberdashers Company and "dwelt In Pissing Conduit in Christopher's Parish and was buried at St. Magnus, in which parish he was born"
Stout's Survey of London and Westminster; 6th ed. 1755; 11; 279). In 1571 there was probated the will of "Sir William Garrarde, knight, alderman of London, of St. Magnus the Martir where I was borne; (with possessions] in Slttlngborne, Newlngton and Milton, Kent" (Prerogative Court of Canterbury Wills; S Draper).

IV. Sir William Barnes (George1, George2, George3), of Woolwich, Kent. Born about 1568, as he was aged 24 and more 28 September 1593, when the inquisition post mortem upon his father's estate was taken. He was knigted at Whitehall 23 July, 1603 (Shaw's Knights of England; 1906; ii; 117). He is named in his father's will as the eldest son. He was the administrator of his mother's estate, 1611-12, and is referred to in the will of his brother Francis Barne, dated 1629, as then deceased. He received the grant of a market at Woolwich 1 June, 1618. He subscribed and paid his subscription of £37-10-0 to the Second Virginia Company (Brown's Genesis, p. 825). He died at Woolwich, 7 May, 1619, where an inquisition post mortem was taken, 22 October, 1619. Neither his will nor administration has been found. He married, about 1586, Anne Sandys, the daughter of Edwin Sandys, D. D., Archbishop of York in the reign of Elizabeth, by his second wife Cecily, daughter of Sir Thomas Wilford [Wilsford] of Cranbrook, Kent, knight. Sketches of the Sandys and Wilsford families will follow in a later paper. The family bible of the Archbishop shows that Anne Sandys was born 21 Junes., 1570 (Brown's Genesis, 992). The agreement of marriage was dated 11 May, 1586 (see inquisition post mortem of Sir George Barne3 ante). The monument in the Woodham Ferrers church to her mother Cecily Sandys, which enumerates the latter's nine children, refers to her as "Ann her 2nd daughter married to Sir William Barn of Woolwich". After the death of the first husband in 1619, she married sometime prior to 25 August, 1625, Edward Poulter, esq., of Bradfield, Herts, whom she also outlived. The will of Edward Poulter, esq. of Bradfield, Herts, dated 25 August, 1625, and proved 2 May, 1626, in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (Hele; 60) is lengthy document from which only a few quotations need be made here. He directs that he be buried in Collered chancel with an "inscription to be graven in quere brass". He refers to his first wife Mary Litton of Knebworth by whom he had seven sons and four daughters. He provides that "Arthur Pulter, my grandson and heir shall suffer Anne, Lady Barne, wife of me the said Edward, peaceably to enjoy for the term of the said lady's life, one copyhold close of pasture called Stockins in Wymondley Magna, according to the time, intent, and meaning of the book of indenture of covenants, made touching the marriage of Litton Pulter, gent., son and heir of me the said Edward, and father of the said Arthur, and for provision of jointure for a second wife of the said Edward". The widow was living 23 May, 1629, when she is named in the will of Francis Barne4 as "Ould Lady Barne, my sister in law" (see ante). She apparently returned to Woolwich to end her days, for her estate was administered upon 10 February, 1629 [-30] when a "commission was issued to Robert Barne [upon the estate of] Dame Anne Barne, late of the parish of Woolwich, co. Kent, widow, deceased to administer the goods, etc. of the said deceased." (Prerogative Court of Canterbury Administrations, 1630). It is interesting to note that in both of the above documents, the custom of the day is followed in referring to the woman, if she had been married more than once, by the name of the husband having the highest rank, and not by the name of her last husband, if he were of inferior rank.
The inquisition post mortem upon the estate of Sir William Barnes, recently secured by the writer from the Chancery records, in the absence of a will, is of special interest:
Inquisition taken at East Greenwich, co. Kent, 22 October, 17 James  upon the estate of Sir William Barne Kt. The jury says that the said Sir William was seised of the manor of Aeon in Plumstead, a capital messuage called "le Towerplace" in Woolwich, of various messuages and lands in Plumstead and Bexley in the occupation of divers (specified) tenants, and of the manor of Calthorpe, co. Lincoln. All these premises he settled (under a fine levied in accordance with the terms of an indenture dated 10 Oct. 16 James I) on the marriage to be solemnized between Sir William Barne, Kt., his son and heir apparent, and Dorothy Manwood, second daughter of Sir Peter Manwood, Knight of the Bath; contingent remainders were thereby reserved in tail male for his other sons Robert, Thomas, Miles, John and George Barne. This marriage was afterwards celebrated. Anne, widow of Sir William in the writ named, is still living at Woolwich. Sir William died there 7 May, 17 James . Sir William Barne, his son and heir is aged 26 and more. (Chancery Inquisition Post-mortem, Series ii, Vol. 421, No. 121).

She is named in the will of her uncle Francis Barne, dated 1629, as "my neece my Lady Lovelesse" to whom he leaves forty shillings for a ring (see ante). She married first, apparently about 1610, Sir William Lovelace, the younger, knight, of Bethersden and Woolwich, Kent, the son of Sir William Lovelace, the elder, knight, of Bethersden, and his wife Elizabeth Aucher, by whom she had issue five sons and three daughters, Richard Lovelace the poet, Thomas Lovelace, Francis Lovelace, governor of New York, William Lovelace, Dudley Lovelace, Anne Lovelace married the Rev.
