The Red Roses won 40-14 in their historic first ever meeting with Barbarians Women at Twickenham.
In front of 17,902 fans in the south west London sunshine, it was from a driving maul from which England took the lead after a couple of minutes with hooker Lark Davies dotting down from the back of it and Zoe Harrison converting.
England dominated possession in the opening exchanges and were rewarded with a second when Hannah Botterman wrestled her way over from close range, before Zoe Aldcroft's break set up Poppy Cleall for an easy run in.
Davies got her second from a pick and go close to the Baa Baas try line, with Harrison's conversion keeping up her 100% record for the half as it sat 28-0 at half-time.
After Kelly Smith had a try disallowed for a forward pass in the build-up, the Barbarians got on the score sheet when Sene Naoupu broke the defensive line to feed Millie Wood to cross.
The Baa Baas improvement continued in the second half and they got a second when Fiao’o Fa’amausili hit a short line of ex-England full back Danielle Waterman to race over untouched.
England's response came from another forwards effort from a rolling maul off the back of a line out, and it was Davies again whose controlled presence at the back of it saw her cross for her hat-trick.
A slick backs move got a seventh for the hosts when Lagi Tuima's looping spin pass found wing Kelly Smith who stretched her legs out wide to dive over.
The Barbarians Women team was established in 2017 and played their first fixture against Munster that year and this was the first time the world famous club had met England Women.
After wins over the Army and USA in their previous two games, the Barbarians faced their toughest test so far coming up against the Red Roses and Simon Middleton's side were clinical in their performance.
This game was part of the preparations for the Women's Rugby Super Series which takes place later this month, with England taking on the best five sides in the world - New Zealand, France, Canada and USA - in San Diego.
