  • 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.

Northern Gas Networks Launches £50k Community Promises Fund

I’m delighted to announce that today Northern Gas Networks (NGN), the gas distributer for the north of England, has launched our Community Promises Fund, in collaboration with the Leeds Community Foundation (LCF).

All applications are welcome, whether or not you’ve worked with NGN before.

The Community Promises Fund is a £50,000 reserve offering grants of £1k to £10k to support projects, events and initiatives within NGN’s network (the north of England, northern Cumbria and most of Yorkshire) aimed at alleviating hardship and other challenges associated with fuel poverty, educating around environmental energy efficiency ideas and raising awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Funding will also be available for projects encouraging young people to get involved with STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) and their related career opportunities.

Leeds Community Foundation, a charity dedicated to creating positive change in local communities, will manage the new fund and distribute grants to successful applicants.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Thursday 22 September, and funds will be distributed by end of November.

To learn more and to apply, visit www.leedscf.org.uk/northern-gas-networks-community-fund
