Mark - Good luck. In addition the Barnhills having been branded as "outlaws" and their refusal to submit to the Crown's order to practice Catholocism (therefore you will find no records in the Catholic Church), You have the following enigma to contend with, according to GOOGLE:
"Common misspellings and typos for the surname Barnhill
BBarnhill, Barnhlil, Branhill, Barhnill, Barhill, Barrnhill, Barnhiill, Barnhil, Barnhilll, Baarnhill, arnhill, Barnnhill, Barnhhill, Brnhill, Banrhill, Barnill, aBrnhill, Barnhll, Banhill, Barnihll."
That is, modern misspellings. Who knows how many ancient misspellings you might find? I would suggest you start with the Presbyterian Church at Barnhill, UK. This is close to Perth, which is north of Glasgow. My source states our Barnhills are known to have fought with William of Orange in the Battle of the Boyne (1690) in "central Ireland". Robert Barnhill (b. 1703) claimed "County Antrim" as his ancestral home. Again, good luck. - Stan
