Noble man; Place name: From the land that was burned.
Was an English amateur cricketer who played first-class cricket from 1820 to 1837. Mainly associated with Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), he made 29 known appearances in first-class matches. He represented the Gentlemen in the Gentlemen v Players series. In 1825, Barnett became the first (i.e., the first known) president of MCC. This is an annual appointment and he was succeeded by Lord Frederick Beauclerk for 1826. There may have been earlier presidents but there is no record of them and it was on 28 July 1825 that the Lord's pavilion was burned down with the loss of all club records. He was Whig Member of Parliament (MP) for Maidstone from 1831 to 1835.
