Tree: St. John Origin and Ancestry DNA Database
Notes: Barry Castle is a small Grade II* listed ruined two-storey gatehouse with the adjacent walls of a hall located in the Romilly district of Barry, Vale of Glamorgan in south Wales. The Norman castle was really little more than a small fortified manor house, the seat of the de Barry family, which was built in the 13th and 14th centuries to replace an earlier earthwork.[1]

By the late 13th century the castle had two stone buildings on the east and west sides of a courtyard, but nothing now remains of these above ground. Early in the 14th century the castle was strengthened by the addition of a large hall and gatehouse on its south side, and the ruins of these can be seen today.
