  • BARKER Family History

    Descendants of John and Grace BarkerbyShaun L Wilson – February 2017 Barker families have resided in Hampsthwaite since the early seventeenth century and were extensive in the area during the nineteenth century. From the 1881 England Census for Hampsthwaite taken on 3rd April that year, Barker was the most popular name totalling 57 out of 457 people enumerated – 12.5% of those recorded living in Hampsthwaite at the time of that census. From the registers of Hampsthwaite parish, Barkers were in existence as early as 1610. The earliest Barker mentioned is John Barker, son of Peter who was baptised on 17th March that year.Where Hampsthwaite is mentioned in this article it refers to both village and parish. We will never know exactly where the early Barker’s dwelling houses were as they are not recorded in either the parish registers or on the early census returns, but it is assumed that they lived in the village or within the parish. It was not until the England Census of 1911 that full address details were given together with the total number of children born alive to the present marriage of the head of the family.
  • Tom Wright reflects upon the Barker family in Hampsthwaite

    As far as I can ascertain there were no Barkers in Hampsthwaite prior to the 18th century. The earliest reference I could find was to the marriage of John Barker, a tailor, to Ann Messenger (daughter of William Messenger) in the parish church sometime near the beginning of the 1700s. I don’t know from whence he originated.They had several children, as did all the Barkers, but I have only recorded my own direct ancestors. They were his son James Barker (1744) & Hannah Dousland; William Barker (1781) & Catherine Swale; John Barker (1810) & Mary Nutter; George Barker (1845) & Sarah ???  who themselves produced Rowland Barker and siblings. He married Eliza Jackson (from an even older family in Birstwith) and they were my maternal Grandparents.(See also and )

Plunkett Foundation Call to Action - Rural Co-operatives' Programme


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) are supporting the Plunkett Foundation Call to Action promoting the positive role parishes have to play in the Rural Co-operatives’ Programme.

Further to this NALC and Plunkett have asked us to send our member councils and parish meetings the attached flyer which summarises the benefits of setting up a community co-operative, the potential for them to address the challenges local communities are facing and the fully-funded support available from Plunkett.  Local councils have a hugely vital role as local enablers in largely rural areas to help establish such community co-operatives – at a time when arguably the creation of such vital building blocks as key units of local rural economic development are needed now more than ever.

Plunkett is a national charity that helps communities across the UK to set up and run community co-operatives; enterprises that are owned and run democratically by large numbers of people in their community – so, working in partnership with NALC, it is well placed to help parishes in the creation of such enterprise models.  Plunkett’s 2015-17 strategy aims to build on its achievements to date, and inspire an even larger movement of people who solve their challenges by running community co-operatives.

To find out how to start up a community co-operative and to get involved in the regeneration of local economies in their areas local councils can contact the Plunkett Helpline on 01993 810 730 or email info@plunkett.co.uk to receive free, initial advice and find out how Plunkett can support them.
