Barrocus ST., a disciple of St. Cadoc, in the 6th century. When Cadoc sailed from the island Echni to Barrew with his disciples Barruc and Gualches, he found that they had forgotten his enchiridion, and sent them back for it, saying, "Go, not to return." The irritable and revengeful character of Celtic saints is noted by Giraldus. A sudden storm overset their boat, and Bariuc lies buried in the island of Barry, to which he gave his name. This account is late, and there is an evident use of Nennius in it. Giraldus Cambrensis, whose family took its name from Barry Island, describes the saint's shrine in his time thus: "Cuijus et reliquiae in capella ibidem sita, hederae nexibus amplexata,'ii feretrum translatae continentur." His feast-day is variously stated as Nov. 29 (Cressy, Church History, 20:18) or Sept. 27 (Ritson, Arthur, p. 157).
