Originally, the gate was formed of posts and a chain. Today Bargate is a building in the city center of Southampton, England. Built c.1180 as part of the fortified walled city, the Bargate was the main point of entry and exit to and from the north. Bargate Ward is an Electoral Ward in the Unitary Authority of Southampton, England.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Bargatt family emigrate to North America: Symon Barcott, who settled in Bermuda in 1635; Johannas Barget, who came to Halifax, N.S. in 1752; Thomas Barget, who settled in Virginia in 1773; and Avon Barcott, who came to Ontario in 1871..
