(6th century),

hermit. Reputedly a disciple of Cadoc, he settled on the Glamorgan island now called Barry Island, after him. Barry, according to one tradition, died there. His chapel became a famous pilgrimage centre, mentioned by Leland. Another tradition claims that he was buried at Fowey (Cornwall): this is recorded by William Worcestre. The fact that in both places his feast is on the same day points to there being one St Barry, not two. Feast: 27 September.
