The earliest recorded member of the Baring family is Peter Baring, a prominent citizen of Groningen, at the beginning of the sixteenth century. The English branch is descended from Johann Baring (1697-1748), the son of a Theology Professor in Bremen, who emigrated to Exeter to take up an apprenticeship in the wool trade. His sons Francis and John moved from Exeter to London and founded what became Barings Bank in 1762- this became one of the major Merchant Banks of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries before its sensational collapse in 1995.
