Hi Sheldon,
I have just finished researching a branch of my family name. Any of these names & places fit in with your research? John Edward Barrass b. 1847 in Leeds, Eng. His father was Paul Henri Francois Nicolas Barras (from France) John Edward married Sarah Howden. Their children were: Walter, Kate, William Edward, Jack, Leonard, Nellie.
William Edward b. 1881 married Ethel Brown. Their children were: John Barrass, Sadie Grace, Dorothy, Edmund, Marjorie, Edna & Ethel Joyce.
For some reason, an extra 's' was added along the way. After the move from France, a move was made first to Ireland then to England. Hope there is a piece that fits here. Talk to you soon. Jay
