  • Joseph Barnett b 3 Oct 1731 in Goochland, Goochland, Virginia, d 5 Feb 1762 in Goochland, Goochland, Virginia
    Parents John Barnett Sr 1680-1755, Katherine Farrar 1700-1763
    wife Lucy Wade 1729-1812; married 3 Oct 1754 St James Parish, Goochland, Virginia

    Another genealogy gives us a list of the children of Joseph and Lucy (Wade) Barnett:
    Joseph Royal "JoRoyal" Barnett
    Micajah Barnett
    Martha Barnett
    John Barnett
    James Barnett
    Elijah Barnett
    Richard Barnett

    The name of Joseph's son here reveals the origin of the name that later appears in so many Barnett descendants, variations of the name Joroyall.  This appears in various lists in many variations, sometimes with different forms for the same person:  Joroyall, Joe Royall, Joe Royal, Joroyal, Jorial, Jorile.  In several sources these forms are given as the nicknames or varying pronunciations for Joe Royall.  In some cases the full name is Joseph Royall (Jorial/Joroyall).  In others the form Jorial appears to have been the main name.

    The Family Data Collection reports some details about Joseph and Lucy.  This current record corrects some transcription errors in dates in the earlier entry.

    Another compliation reports similar information.

    Family Data Collection - Births
    Joseph Barnett
    Father: John Barnett, Mother: Katherine Farrar
    Birth 1731, Goochland County, VA, USA

    This marriage date differs, reporting 30 Oct 1754, rather than 3 Oct as the family genealogies.  The birth date varies, also, reporting 1727 instead of 1731 as all the genealogies do.

    Several male members of this family are recorded in the 1790 Federal census for Spartanburg (Spartenburgh) County, South Carolina.  Only the names of head of household are reported, males ages are reported in broad age ranges; and ages of females are not reported.  So details are not certain .  This entries appears to report on Joseph Barnet [sic -- only 1 T], born 1731.  Nearby are a John Barnet, Micajah Barnet and Edward Barnet, all within a few houses of each other, and a James Barnet farther away, all recorded on the same page.  Edward appears to be Joseph's brother.

    In 1800 the household of Joseph has grown and now includes 7 slaves, for a total of 19 persons.  No slaves were reported in 1790.  On one side of Joseph is the household of Edward Barnett, and on the other is Micajah Barnett
