Early Origins of the Barrebaan family
Westmorland, (now known as Cumbria) where they held a family seat at Barbon Manor from ancient times.

It seems that people from both locals claim their origin of the name as distinct. Barebone (1596-1679), the London leather merchant and preacher descended from the Worcestershire parish.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed.
