Ms asked:

Should you read the Chronicles of Barsetshire in order?

Dorothy Willis I think it works out better to read them in order.
Sean O The Warden and Barchester Towers probably should be read in order, because many of the same characters appear in both books.

You don't have to, the novels stand alone.

The third novel are all new characters with some cameos from the other books.
Sandra It has been quite awhile since I read the first two volumes, and I didn't find any problems whatsoever reading Dr. Thorne independent of the other books. I know this doesn't fully answer your question, but it's the only one I can speak to with any authority, since I read the last two so many years ago.
