BARRETT Family History

Barrett (Barret, Barratt) is the Gaelic version of Baroid which translates to "intellectual son" or "war-like". The Barretts first appeared following the Norman invasion , hired as mercenaries from Wales. As an English surname it is thought to have been derived from the old english word meaning "quarrelsome" or "deceitful" or from a corruption of the Norman personal name Barnard, Bernhard or Berold. The surname is also common around Norfolk, England.

Anthony Barrett

(Part 1 of 3) The Barrett name can be found throughout British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says their origin is from the Emerald Island. The Barrett story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup B2] can trace their origins to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Barrett surname origin is from Clan Domnaill [DNA Tribe R1b-L513, Subgroup B1] and relations who remain in Ireland take the modern surname (O’)Donnelly, McDonald and Donohue in Ireland.

(Part 2 of 3) The Domnaill name is also found in Brittany, France according to research from the Centre de Recherche Bretonne et Celtique. It is a very old name which appears in the 5th century Roman inscriptions as Dumnovellaunos in Brittany meaning “Deep Valour” equivalent to Irish Domhnaill. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Barrett story begins in pre-history Ireland then moves to Wales where the family can be traced back to their Welsh tribe Cydifor Fawr.

My GG Grandfather was living in Lambeth London in 1861.His name was William Barrett and he was a carpenter. He married a young English girl called Emma in July 1861, he was 29 and a widower she was 21 and a spinster.I have been unable to find anything about William,he was missing from the UK census in 1861 and also earlier UK census returns.I am told Barrett is an Irish name and I think it is possible William came to London from Ireland just before he married.I have no idea if I have Irish ancestry but feel it couod well be possible.
