The ruins of the chapel dedicated to him can be seen on Friars Road.Cadoxton, too, takes its name from an early saint, Sant Cadoc, and it is around the medieval church of Saint Cadoc that the old village grew up.The Black Death in the 14th century almost finished Barry.It was not until the 17th century that the population recovered sufficiently to be once again termed a village.Things, however, were to change dramatically, and Barry and Cadoxton were to develop in leaps and bounds.The ever-growing coal trade was far outstripping the facilities at Cardiff Docks and so a group of colliery owners formed the Barry Railway Company and chose to build the dock at Barry.The railways, which had played a major part in the development of the dock, did a great deal to make Barry Island the popular resort it is today.
It is thought that the name Barry possibly derives from Saint Baruc who was drowned in the Bristol Channel and buried on Barry Island.From the railway pier, paddleboats plied along the coast and across the Channel.Barry had grown into an important town, and in 1939 it was made a borough, an independence that, although changed at the major reorganisation of 19 is still reflected in the existence of the Town Council today.Work commenced in 1884 and the first dock basin was opened in 1889 to be followed by two other docks and extensive port installations.
The Barry Railway brought coal down from the valleys to the new docks whose trade grew from one million tons in the first year to over nine million tons by 1903.
Distinctive Welsh politics developed in the 19th century.
