ALEXANDER BARREAU (II)
The origins of Alexander Barreau at this stage are unknown.
As a child I was told that Cyril used to tease his wife, Clara, with the following, that her grandfather (Alexander) was: “Pierre Barreau, the bold pirate from Bordeaux”. Another family story told was that he had ‘jumped ship’ in order to settle in Adelaide. And yet another said he had jumped ship in Victoria chasing gold and went overland to South Australia.
More information has been found on Alexander, which is outlined in the biographical section, however we still do not know where he came from, whether he did jump ship, or whether he was ever nicknamed “Pierre”.

_____________________Name: Barreau A Medieval French surname, while popular in modern France, it is also recorded in England. A suggested meaning of the name is “little barrel” and perhaps was origninally a nickname.
(from:http://www.surnamedb.com/surname.aspx?name=Barreau, sited 7 April 2010). ‘Barreau’ itself is a word in French meaning ‘rung’, or ‘bar’. It is also used in legal terms in reference to a barrister working “for the Bar” as is said in English.
