This is a branch of the family of “Barcroft” of Noyna, county Lancaster; its present representative in Ireland is (in 1887) Henry Barcroft, of the Glen, county Armagh; only son of the late Joseph Barcroft, of Lisburn, county Antrim. The pedigree of this family before the time of Cromwell is to be found in Whittaker’s History of Whalley. The old house of Barcroft in Lancashire, near Townley, is fully described as a typical instance in the Old Halls of Lancashire and Cheshire, published by Cornish of Manchester some three or four years ago.
