Name: UNKNOWN BARRS
Birth: Perhaps in England, maybe Leicestershire or Warwickshire
Note: There was a large Barrs family in Market Bosworth Leicestershire whose earliest name was Michael Barrs born about 1540 in Leicestershire. It is possible that the Market Bosworth Village and Bulkington Village Warwickshire Barrs families were related since the distance between the two villages is only about 16 miles. We have not yet been able to validate that these two Barrs families were connected and related.

Birth: MARCH 5, 1727 in Toft Hamlet, Warwickshire England
Death: Between 1800 and 1810 in Lenoir County North Carolina
Married: FEBRUARY 19, 1749 Aston Juxta, Birmingham, Warwickshire England
Note: JOHN BARRS, (SR.) was the first of our Barrs family line to immigrate to America in 1750 with his new wife SARA SPEARS. They settled in Johnson-Dobbs County North Carolina in the region that is today LENOIR COUNTY NC, bought farmland, began farming/plantation operations and began raising a large family of NC BARRS. JOHN had inherited his father's, JOHN BARRS OF TOFT'S, property because his father had perhaps disinherited the older sons over a disagreement evolving the church, I believe. It appears that JOHN decided to leave England for more suitable farming conditions and land in America shortly after his father's death in 1746. it also appears he traveled from TOFT HAMLET in the early spring of 1749 to BIRMINGHAM where he married SARAH SPEARS on FEBRUARY 19, 1749. I believe they then traveled directly to LIVERPOOL or BRISTOL ENGLAND where they boarded a ship bound for perhaps WILLIAMSBURG NORTH CAROLINA. They then settled in what is today LENOIR COUNTY NC (JOHNSON-DOBBS-LENOIR). He served in the DOBBS COUNTY MILITIA during 1766 AND 1777. His son, John Barrs, Jr. served in the Dobbs County Militia in 1777.
Several daughters, perhaps 7 were born from 1750 to 1790, but no Christian names or birthdates are available,
