First man to find a barrier (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

adam

Here is my best explanation:

'first man' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'a barrier' is the subsidiary indication.

'barrier' becomes 'dam' (dam is a kind of barrier).

'a'+'dam'='adam'

'to find' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for adam that I've seen before include "Eve's partner", "Eves husband", "- - Bede by George Eliot", "Father of Cain and Abel", "Male", "who transformed the Palladian style?", "Biblical first human", "Man on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel", "Early man" and "__ Smith, author of The Wealth of Nations".)
