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.

Thank you for all of the help that I received on Robert Luker. I was able to follow him all the way to me in Canada. I have still not found the last name of Sarah and Betty but appreciate all of your help.
I was able to find the descendants of Issac as well so will also share the information with them.

Thank you so much, Alan.
Anything you can share with me would be appreciated. There are so few Lukers in Canada.
My dad is in his late 80ís so I share everything I learn with him and his brother.
Many thanks.
Judy

All Shrivenham

30-11-1783 Thomas  "  (8 days)   "      "             "         (formerly Lock)
10-7-1785   William   "  (2   "         "      "             "                 "         "
13-4-1788   Robert    "  (9   "         "      "             "                 "         "
4-9-1791     Jacob     "  (13 "         "      "             "                 "         "  (bur. 15-7-1792 (10 mths)
    "               Isaac      " (13  "        "      "             "                  "         "

Although it doesn't say so but, going by the ages of the last 2 children would think they were twins.
