Origin of Surname

This is a surname of medieval French origin but opinions differ on whether it describes a maker of bonnets, someone who lives by a "little gate"; ie, the gatehouse of a castle or manor (barre and petit); or, as George Balleine suggests in his work on the Derivation of Jersey Surnames, someone with a big beard. Barthr, the big-bearded viking, is Baret in French records.

The family is known in Jersey since the 17th century and may be of Huguenot origin.
