Barnard was born in Reading, Berkshire in 1685 (exact date unknown), and died in Clapham, Surrey on 20 August 1764. His family were Quakers, but Barnard converted to the Anglican church in 1703. At age fifteen he followed his father into the family wine business, starting as an apprentice and learning the skills of book-keeping and accounting before going on to become a partner in the firm some time before 1710.
