Educated at Clifton College and Oriel College, Oxford, Barne picked up a single first-class appearance for Somerset against Oxford University in 1904. Somerset lost the match by an innings margin, with Barne picking up one run in the first innings and nine in the second. A tailend batsman, Barne's brothers-in-laws, Alexander Streatfeild-Moore and Edward Streatfeild played first-class cricket in the late 19th century: the former playing county cricket for Kent, the latter for Surrey.
After a short period as a schoolmaster, he was ordained in 1904 and after a curacy at St John the Baptist Summertown, Oxford he became a Missionary in India, eventually rising to be Principal of the Lawrence Royal Military School, Sanawar before appointment to the episcopate. He was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in the 1919 New Year Honours.
