He wrote a poem on the Battle of Otterburn, the greater part of which is quoted in the eighteenth century editions of Fordun's ‘Scotichronicon.’ According to Dempster he flourished in 1560, and in all likelihood he is identical with the Thomas de Barry, presbyter, whose name appears as notary in a document preserved in the ‘Registrum Episcopatus Glasguensis’ in 1503.

The Battle of Otterburn took place according to Scottish sources on 5 August 1388, or 19 August according to English sources, as part of the continuing border skirmishes between the Scots and English.

<i>Scotichronicon</i> 15th-century chronicle of the founding of Scotland

The Scotichronicon is a 15th-century chronicle or legendary account, by the Scottish historian Walter Bower. It is a continuation of historian-priest John of Fordun's earlier work Chronica Gentis Scotorum beginning with the founding of Ireland and thereby Scotland by Scota with Goídel Glas. Queen Scota's name means "blossom" in Irish & Scottish Gaelic. Scotti was once a synonym for Irish, indicating that they are "people of the blossom," or descendants of Queen Scota.
