Families covered: Barry of Barrymore, Barry of Buttevant, Barry of Manorbier Castle, Barry of Olethan

BIFR1976 starts its worthy article on this family with: "This family is held to be of Norman origin and takes its name from the island of Barry off the coast of Glamorgan."
Odo de Barri of Manorbier Castle, Pembrokeshire (d c1130)
1. William de Barri or Barry of Manorbier Castle
  m. Angareth (dau of Gerald FitzWalter de Windsor by Nesta, Princess of South Wales)
  As reported on Windsor01, there is some doubt as to whether Angareth was her mother's daughter by her 1st or her 2nd marriage. We follow those sources (the majority) which show her as by the 1st marriage.
  A. Sir Robert de Barri, "Barry More" (d Lismore c1185)
  BE1883 identifies his brother Philip as Robert's successor. It is therefore presumed that he had no legitimate children. However, at least one branch of Barrys claim descent from him, as shown on Barry04.
  B. Philip de Barry of Manorbier Castle & Olethan (d 1199/1200)
  m. ?? (dau of Richard FitzTancred, castellan of Haverfordwest)
  i. Sir William de Barry of Manorbier Castle, baron of Olethan (a 1206, 2nd son)

  (1) David ('Oge') de Barry of Manorbier Castle & Olethan, 1st Lord Barry or Barrymore 'of Buttevant' (d 1278, Lord Justiciar of Ireland)
TCP reports that the early Irish Peers were not always formally appointed as such. The numberings are therefore somewhat arbitrary. We follow what is recommended by TCP and supported by BIFR1976.
