Caleb Barry

Caleb Barry (1888 – 1915) bank manager
The NSW village of Barry was probably named after Caleb Barry, a former bank manager in Blayney and stalwart of the Church of England. The pulpit in Christ Church, Blayney is a memorial to Caleb Barry. It reads “To the Glory of God in recognition 27yrs (1888 – 1915) faithful service rendered to this parish as Christward and Sunday School superintendent by Caleb Robertson Barry.

The township of Barry (located 15km south of Blayney) was probably named after Caleb Barry, a former bank manager in Blayney and stalwart of the Church of England. The pulpit in Christ Church, Blayney is a memorial to Caleb Barry. It reads “To the Glory of God in recognition 27yrs (1888 – 1915) faithful service rendered to this parish as Christward and Sunday School superintendent by Caleb Robertson Barry. ”

The streets of Barry are named after clergy or bishops (Barber, Marsden, Hale, Moorhouse, Pearson, Sawyer, Selwyn, Staunton, Turner).

Today all Barry public buildings, except St. James Anglican Church and the community Centre have closed. The Post Office and both stores are now private homes, as is the school residence and former St Therese Catholic Church. The village roads are still unsealed except for the main crossroads Selwyn and Sawyer Streets. But there is now a piped water supply available to residents from a hilltop tank supplied by a bore. There are now approximately 40 houses in the village with some 80 residents.
