About the Barrus surname

My first ancestor who came here was John Bar(r)ow(e). Born in 1609 in England. The name was changed to Barrow, then Barrows. Then most of a family died and 2 kids were adopted/taken in by aunt and uncle. They were told you're spelling it wrong. It is Barrus. So I am Barrus instead any of the others.
