An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The origins of the Barrowy name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived on a road near a field or piece of land that was triangular in shape. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English words gara, meaning "triangular piece of land," and weg, meaning "path" or "road."

Barrowy Early Origins



The surname Barrowy was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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 Barrowy family emigrate to North America: Joan Carroway and her husband John, who settled in Virginia in 1635; Roger Carroway settled in Nevis in 1654; along with his brother William; Jeremiah Garroway settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1723.
