Here is a list of all the people wth the first name Barbato who came through Ellis Island. You might want to research where they came from. It looks like the name is common in a few towns. An interesting project!!!
Gio to www. house of names.com for Barbato. Since it is associated with Ventian nobility. No first names were used in that title class until much later when second names came into vogue.
This is evidenced in the listing of first names in the first name dictionary in www.gens.labo,.net/en/cognomi under "nomi" which lacks any reference to Barbato although based on the base name Barba is closely associated with Borbone.
My great grandfather (Bn 1857) and my uncle (Bn 1913) are named Barbato Mastandrea and are from Valle dell'Angelo. My uncle uses the name Robert in the US. There are several Barbato Mastandreas who ended up in South America.

If I am correct this first name is very rare in Italy.
If you have a Barbato in your family tree I am very interested in his surname.
My Great-Grandfather's name was Barbato Mastandrea. Settled in New York and sometime between 1900 and 1910 moved to Chicago.
However, I have found several sources he also used the name of Guiseppe Joseph and Robert. Deed records show name of Barbato, probate record used Guiseppe, but in small print Alias name.

I need a little more information. Do you know when he was born about?
According to 1900 census NY 1865, 1910 census Chicago 1862, and 1920 census Chicago 1861. His DC states yr. born Unknown gives age approximately 54, he died 1921 in Chicago, this would give yr. born 1867.
Remaining family does not know where in Italy born.
