Barnikel

The fine old English name of Barnikel, by legend, derives from a kindly Viking who told his men not to kill children. (Bairn-ni-kell) - although the name can also be found in Germany. Accounts of this legendary Viking and one of his descendants appear in SARUM. But the main story of a fictional family of this name occurs in LONDON, beginning with Hrothgar the Dane in 'The Conqueror'.
