Origins of surname

This name has three possible origins: It may be a topographical name or occupational name of Anglo-Saxon origin, for someone who lived or worked at a barn. The placename Barnes, on the Surrey bank of the Thames in West London, has the same origin, and some bearers may be members of families hailing from there.

It may be of Anglo-Saxon and Old Norse origin, and be the name borne by the son or servant of a berne, a term used in the early Middle Ages for a member of the upper classes.

It may be of Irish origin, an Anglicised form of the Gaelic O'Bearain, descendant of Bearan, a byname meaning spear.

Early records

The earliest baptism records in Jersey are those for Elizabeth and Joseph, children of Joseph and Catherine Le Feuvre, in St Helier in 1776 and 1778.
