John Barr was admitted to Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in 1826 and graduated as M.B. in 1831 and M.D. in 1836. In the College Lists up to 1843 his address is given as Sloane Street and Torrington Square in London. He must have taken Holy Orders soon after 1843, since he was given the curacy of Wendens Ambo, Essex, in 1846, and later held the livings of Wenden Lofts and Elmdon (1862-72). His name last appears in the College List of 1887.
