The population at the 2011 census was 11,066, it is situated on the south bank of the Humber Estuary at the southern end of the Humber Bridge. It is 46 miles east of Leeds, 6 miles south-west of Kingston upon Hull and 31 miles north north-east of the county town of Lincoln. Other nearby towns include Scunthorpe to Grimsby to the south-east. Barton is at the southern end of the Humber Bridge; the Viking Way starts near the bridge. The Barton – Cleethorpes Branch Line via Grimsby terminates at Barton-on-Humber railway station; the A15 passes to the west of the town cutting through Beacon Hill, has a junction with the A1077 Ferriby Road to South Ferriby.

Cropmarks and the discovery of polished handaxes in the area surrounding Barton-upon-Humber suggest that the area was inhabited at least as far back as the Neolithic. No Roman settlement has been found in Barton-upon-Humber, though individual discoveries dating to the Roman period have been made: in 1828 a Roman cremation and an inhumation were discovered, in 1967 part of a Roman road was excavated near Bereton school, other finds of coins, potteries and other Roman objects have been made. St Peter's Church has a Saxon tower. An Anglo-Saxon inhumation cemetery at Castledyke South, in use from the late 5th or early 6th century until the late 7th century, was investigated and excavated 1975–90: the skeletal remains of 227 individuals were identified, including one who had undergone trepanning; the church was reopened in May 2007 as a resource for medical research into the development of diseases, ossuary, containing the bones and skeletons of some 2,750 people whose remains were removed between 1978 and 1984 from the 1,000-year-old burial site, after the Church of England made the church redundant in 1972.

The significance of the human remains lies in their representing the pathology of an isolated community over the period ca. 950-ca. 1850. An excavation report on this, one of England's most extensively investigated parish churches was published in 2007. Barton is mentioned as a Medieval borough in documents dating from 1086, 1216–1272 and 1298.

The Medieval manor in Barton was Tyrwhitt Hall. There are two Medieval churches extant in Barton-upon-Humber, St Peter's and St Mary's, located only about 170 yards apart. St Peter's is a large Anglo-Saxon church and predates St Mary's — which may have originated as a chapel on the original market place and increasing in importance as the town's trade thrived in the 12th and 13th centuries.

Founded in 1984 by William O'Neil as a print news publication, it is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. Holding a conservative political stance, IBD provides news and analysis on stocks, mutual funds, ETFs, other financial instruments aimed at individual investors and financial professionals. In March, 2016, the company announced that IBD would become a weekly publication and would focus more on digital operations; the publication will continue to use the Investor's Business Daily name as it will continue to publish daily on its website. In May 2016, the company switched to a weekly print publishing schedule and published its first issue of IBD Weekly while continuing to update its website daily. Entrepreneur and stockbroker William O'Neil founded the newspaper in 1984 due to frustration with the lack of data about stocks in newspapers. In 1991, the publication's name was changed from Investor's Daily to Investor's Business Daily.

In 1994, ten years after its founding, IBD was ranked among the fastest-growing newspapers in the country. In 2005, the political cartoonist Michael Ramirez joined IBD. In 2008, Ramirez won his second Pulitzer for editorial cartooning while at the company. In 2015, the IBD website was accessed by over 4 million monthly visitors.

IBD was one of two polls that predicted a Donald Trump victory. Leading up to the election, IBD's poll had been dismissed as being an "outlying survey," but it was rated as one of the closest to the final result. IBD takes a conservative political stance in its analysis. IBD provides investor education through its Investor's Corner, the Big Picture, online resources.

The information provided expands on William O'Neil's previous books that detail the CAN SLIM investment strategy. IBD includes news of interest, it covers internet and technology stocks in particular, has a substantial editorial and opinion section. Every Monday in its weekly edition, IBD publishes a list of 50 stocks that are most attractive based on earnings, stock price performance, other criteria used in the CAN SLIM strategy; the IBD 50 Index is the flagship US stock market benchmark published by the Investor’s Business Daily, similar to how FTSE 100 was to the Financial Times. The index is based on the CAN SLIM methodology invented by the newspaper’s founder William O’Neil, the list of its constituents is published every Monday, it becomes the basis for an exchange-traded fund called the Innovator IBD 50 ETF, rebalanced weekly. In July 2009, an editorial in Investor's Business Daily claimed that physicist Stephen Hawking "wouldn't have a chance in the U. K. where the National Health Service would say the life of this brilliant man, because of his physical handicaps, is worthless."

Hawking was British, lived in the United Kingdom nearly all of his life, received his medical care from the NHS. IBD removed the editorial's reference to Hawking in its online version and appended an "Editor's Note" which said, "This version corrects the original editorial which implied that physicist Stephen Hawking, a professor at the University of Cambridge, did not live in the UK." Hawking himself responded, "I wouldn't be here today if it were not for the NHS. I have received a large amount of high-quality treatment without which I would not have survived."

Aplexa

Aplexa is a genus of small, left-handed or sinistral, air-breathing freshwater snails, aquatic pulmonate gastropod mollusks in the family Physidae. These small snails are quite distinctive, because they have shells that are sinistral, which means that if you hold the shell such that the spire is pointing up the aperture is on the left-hand side; the shells of Aplexa species have a long and large aperture, a high and pointed spire, no operculum. The shells are rather transparent. Species in the genus Aplexa include: Aplexa hypnorum Linnaeus, 1758 - type species Aplexa elongata - the lance aplexa Aplexa rivalis "Genus summary for Aplexa".
