    The 1st of Barnard Castle.
    BE1883 reports that Guy was succeeded by the Barnard who was 1st of Barnard Castle "or, by some accounts, the son of Barnard de Baliol". The 'jarnou' web site identified below shows the Barnard who was 1st of Barnard Castle as son of Bernard (who, by Mathilde, was also father of those shown in B+ below) son of Sir Hugues of Bailleul who was son of the above Guy de Bailleul. 'Lives of the Baillies' (like BE1883) shows Guy de Baliol as father of Barnard de Baliol, 1st of Barnard Castle (a 1138) who m. Agnes de Pincheni (or Picquigny).
    As part of the lordship of Gainford, Barnard Castle is said to have been granted by William Rufus to Guy Baliol Bernard, son of Guy Baliol, who built the castle, and called it after himself, Castle Bernard. To the men of the town which grew up outside the castle walls he gave, about the middle of the 12th century, a charter making them burgesses and granting them the same privileges as the town of Richmond in Yorkshire. This charter was confirmed by Bernard Baliol, son of the above Bernard. Other confirmation charters were granted to the town by Hugh, John, and Alexander Baliol. The castle and lordship remained in the hands of the Baliols until John Baliol, king of Scotland, forfeited them with his other English estates in 1296. Barnard Castle was then seized by Anthony, bishop of Durham, as being within his palatinate of Durham
