(Daredevil I#204 (fb) - BTS) - Barrington Synn was the only living descendant of a rich British family line with ties all the way back to King Henry the IV. He learned that part of his family line had been found in remote Africa, where it had been cut off for centuries in isolation, and that his only living relative, Chief Micah of the Kingorge tribe, was being brought to New York. Furious and wanting to protect his riches, Barrington himself went to New York City.

(Daredevil I#204 (fb) - BTS) - Synn promised Crossbow fifty thousand pounds for the murder of Chief Micah, but paid him only part of the proceeds.

(Daredevil I#204) - Crossbow reported to Synn that his assassination attempt had failed, due to the intervention of Daredevil. Synn reminded Crossbow that he wouldn't pay him the rest of the money until Micah was dead, but Crossbow said he wanted to see Micah dead himself. Hearing the news that Micah would be attending the society party thrown by Debbie Harris and Franklin Nelson, Synn sent Crossbow there. When the super hero Daredevil burst through his window demanding answers, Synn was frightened and admitted he'd sent Crossbow. Daredevil rushed away, and Synn checked himself out of the hotel. Daredevil managed to stop Crossbow again.

(Daredevil I#210 (fb) - BTS) - Micah (who had just summoned Ebenezer), through his attorneys, laid claim to the family fortune. They needed a deposition from Barrington.
