    Notes 
    • Note that John and his wife Emily lived in the same place as Barnabas Bye and his wife, Emily Howes. The following note appears in an Ancestry.com tree which st least partly answers this question:
      After marrying Emily Howes, Barnabas Bye was officially known as John Howes. Family tradition says this was a financial arrangement with his father in law, John Howes.

      John Howes wished to have the Howes surname, and John Howes in particular, so offerred Barnabas money to do the name change. Barnabas made sure the children were registered as Bye so they knew their pedigree.

      sn of John Bye, Shopkeeper (grocer), and Elizabeth Lock Edwards
      Name misspelt as Barnaby/Barnaber in 1871
