A small Settlement about midway between Eagle and Morton, just east of the London North East (formerly Nottingham & Lincoln) line's tracks, in Lincolnshire's North Kesteven district, is named Eagle Barnsdale. It has lent the second part of its name to at least two localities in the vicinity: the Barnsdale Crossing (of the railway line) and the Barnsdale Farm. The earliest reference known to IRHB so far is a census return from 1841,[1] the earliest map a 6" O.S. map of the area published in 1886 (see maps listed below). The place has no further interest in our connection than that it is one of a few places named Barnsdale (there are also a small number of localities named after one or other of these). See Places named Barnsdale.
