The legend included in this 1771 plat map of Old Barrington Village--drawn just as Barrington, MA reincorporated as Barrington, RI--lists several of the "who's who" mentioned in this tour. These include: Henry Bowen (#9) proprietor of the Bowen Tavern; Joshua Bicknell (#14) land owner who gifted land to the Town for the relocated meetinghouse; Reverend Solomon Townsend (#1) meetinghouse minister and frequent tavern patron; as well as two other frequent tavern patrons: the Blacksmith Josiah Vial (#11) and the noted Statesman Samuel Allen (#10).
