Barton Village, Newport

The area known as 'Barton' or 'Barton Village', on the east side of Newport, was named after a speculating builder called Barton who developed the area in the early part of the 19th century but lost a lot of money by doing so.

The burial of Harriot Carley at Whippingham church in 1819 is the first record of 'Barton Village' as an address in the church Burial Register. At the time, Barton Village was in the Parish of Whippingham.
