Barnby Dun (or, originally, Barnby upon Don) was a village to the northeast of Doncaster included in Doncaster Rural District from the introduction of rural districts in 1894 until it was merged with the neighbouring parish of Kirk Sandall in 1921 to become Barnby Dun with Kirk Sandall. The new parish also included the parish of Edenthorpe. The combined civil parish is now located within the Metropolitan Borough of Doncaster in South Yorkshire, England.
A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Deighton from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:
- "BARNBY-UPON-DON, or Barnby-Dun, a township and a parish in Doncaster district, [West Riding of] Yorkshire. The township lies on the river Don, and on the Doncaster and Thorne railway, 5 miles NE by N of Doncaster; and it has a station, of the name of Barnby-Dun, on the railway. Acres: 2,230. Real property: £4,259. Population: 537. Houses: 118."
Historically, Barnby Dun was an ecclesiastical parish in the wapentake of Strafforth and Tickhill.

- GENUKI has a page on all three ridings of Yorkshire and pages for each of the ecclesiastical parishes in the county. Under each parish there is a list of the settlements within it and brief description of each. The list is based on a gazetteer dated 1835 and there may have been a number of alterations to the parish setup since then. However, it is worthwhile information for the pre civil registration era. GENUKI provides references to other organizations who hold genealogical information for the local area. There is no guarantee that the website has been kept up to date and the submitter is very firm about his copyright. This should not stop anyone from reading the material.
- The FamilyTree Wiki has a series of pages similar to those provided by GENUKI which may have been prepared at a later date from more recent data. The wiki has a link to English Jurisdictions 1851 which gives the registration district and wapentake for each parish, together with statistics from the 1851 census for the area.
- A Vision of Britain through Time, Yorkshire West Riding, section "Units and Statistics" leads to analyses of population and organization of the county from about 1800 through 1974. There are pages available for all civil parishes, municipal boroughs and other administrative divisions. Descriptions provided are usually based on a gazetteer of 1870-72.

- The above three maps indicate the boundaries between parishes, etc., but for a more detailed view of a specific area try a map from this selection. The oldest series are very clear at the third magnification offered. Comparing the map details with the GENUKI details for the same area is well worthwhile.
