Luker-Robert Luker b)1817, Berkshire, Eng
« on: Thursday 16 February 17 15:57 GMT (UK) »
I have hit a brick wall. Robert Luker b)Mar 30,1817 Berkshire Eng, baptized May 11, 1817 Shrivenham, Berkshire, Eng d) Huron Co, Ontario, Canada, married Margaret Thompson and farmed in  Exeter/Lucan area outside London, Ontario, Methodist Preacher
I believe? that his parents were Richard Luker, b) 1822 Coleshill, Berkshire and Sarah b) 1830 Puton Stoke, Eng
Anyone have information that may help me with my gg grandfather.

b) for born is that because you have his parents born after he was?! 

Where did he marry as the marriage certificate should give more information.

Familysearch has Robert's baptism, as you say parents Richard and Sarah.

The same site also has a Richard Luker born 1798, baptised 13 Jan 1799 in Shrivenham, parents William and Betty.

Hi Juddy,
I can confirm much of the info you already have;
Shrivenham;
Bapt. 11-5-1817 Robert Luker s/o Richard & Sarah, lab, Watchfield.b.30-3-1817

Bapt. 13-1-1799 Richard Luker, aged 1 mnth, s/o William & Betty
Taken from the Shrivenham transcripts issued by the OxfordFHS.

I looked but didn't see a marriage for Richard Luker to Sarah or Wm & Betty in Shrivenham. (Watchfield entries prior to about 1850 are in the Shrivenham registers) So would think they came from another parish - in fact there were only a few entries for Luker/Leuker etc.

It looks like Robert Luker married again in later life to Margaret Martin , 25 years his junior :

The above confirms his parents as Richard and Sarah.
