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 I have found so far is 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 just four places named Barnsdale (there are also a small number of localities named after one or other of these). See Places named Barnsdale.
