BARKER in Barnsley
« on: Wednesday 20 December 17 12:37 GMT (UK) »
I'm seeking information on the BARKER family who were living at 57 Brinkman Street, Barnsley in 1911. I have traced the family backwards through time but wonder what happened to the 7 surviving children?

The names and year of birth registrations are:

Thomas b 1872
William b 1883
John b 1885
Joe b 1890 (the GRO index has him as Joah)
Sarah Ann b 1876
Lucy b 1879
Elizabeth b 1885 (she married a Thomas Gill and there were children)


the other four children died in infancy :(

Any information as to descendants would be gratefully received.

With 7 children there could be a lot of descendants.

Are you prepared to buy birth or marriage certificates to confirm family links?

Have you looked to see if they are in a family tree on Ancestry or any other websites?
In fact, have you looked to see if anyone on here is researching this family, as a starter?
