BARRAS Family HistoryRecorded in several spellings including Barras, Barrass, Barrasse, Baress, Barus, Barrus and even Beeres, this is an English surname. It is either locational from the village of Barras in the former county of Westmorland, or it is topographical for somebody who lived by a "bearwes", or a grove of woods. Locational surnames are usually "from" names. That is to say surnames given to people after they left their original homes, as an easy form of identification for a stranger. Spelling being at best erratic, and local dialects very thick, often lead to the adoption of "sounds like" spellings.
