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'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1890, nine-year-old Daisy Ashford wrote a novel and never showed it to the world. It was only after her mother’s death some twenty-eight years later, when she was sorting through old papers with her sisters, that she found the manuscript in a drawer. After the manuscript found its way to publishers, the book – The Young Visiters – came out in 1919, (yes, that is how the title was spelled) to great acclaim. After the book went into several editions, Daisy bought a farm with her earnings, commenting, “I like fresh air and royalty cheques”.
