About the Name
Barbecana is a medieval Latin word for a fortified gatehouse, and it is the inspiration for the Barbican Centre in the City in London. Tony Welsh, the company’s founder, chose it because of his fondness for the West Smithfield and Clerkenwell areas around the Barbican, where he lives in the summer, splitting his time between London and Houston.
The Barbican is just a few hundred yards from West Smithfield and St Paul’s Cathedral. The area is steeped in history, and three institutions dominate it to this day — the Smithfield meat market, the Priory Church of St Bartholomew the Great and St Bartholomew’s Hospital. All were established in Smithfield by the late 12th century and all are vital features of this community today.
