    Sorry but he is what he is.

    Just because he was born in Wales does mean he has Welsh heritage. English bllod runs through the whole of Wales and Barnard in an Old Anglo-Norman surname

      No one can be 100% of any given background, even if they think so, that’s why I agree with you. However, if he has got any ‘non-welsh’ ancestors, they might be ‘bred out’, so to speak. Who knows? His family and himself probably!

      Surnames arrived so late (Middle Ages), they are not indictors of ethnicity.

    • crunty says:

      Welsh is his first language. The real ethnic English live more in the eastern and middle half of England and especially in the shires, less so the cities. I doubt if there is much ethnic English in Barnard.

      • follers says:

        Great point. If only someone had put up a full genealogy of Barnard, listing his litany of very recent English ancestors, that would have been even more helpful.

        Personally, I never read past the pictures, either.
