Multiple Origins for the Surname Barry



The name is originally of Norman origin, deriving from the old French word "barri," meaning "rampart;" though, it is also thought that a small number of bearers of this name come from the Gaelic names "ó Beargha," or "ó Báire."

Barry Early Origins



The surname Barry was first found in Cork (Irish: Corcaigh) the ancient Kingdom of Deis Muin (Desmond), located on the southwest coast of Ireland in the province of Munster. "The Barrys were amongst the earliest Anglo-Norman settlers in Ireland, and have held large possessions in the county of Cork ever since the reign of Henry II. They had immense possessions, and their chief seat, Castle Lyons, vied in splendor with the most celebrated mansions in the South of Ireland. Their early residences at Barryscourt and Buttevant were also extensive and strong. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
