Biographical history

A lumber merchant who lived in St. George along Barry’s Lane in the early 1800s. He bought and sold lumber and vessels, and his saw mill was a water-powered operation with a filed capital of $3000 and a floating capital of $8000 which employed about 20 men and 4 boys. Thomas Barry’s business was operated out of a building near the wharf, part of which was a store. Through this store he sold imports from London which included carthen-ware, cotton, woolens, and other types of clothing. His business also exported pine for ship masts and spars, and other kinds of wood as well.
