  • 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 )

Incinerator

Planning meeting, Tuesday 30 October - http://email.beyondcolour.com/t/r-e-kixhik-dkhjuusj-r/


Information from HBC

As part of Welfare Reform the Government has announced that Council Tax Benefit is to be abolished and replaced from April 2013 by a new local financial support scheme, called Council Tax Reduction.  How this scheme is operated will be decided by local authorities.  The Government has also announced that the amount it pays local authorities for their new local schemes will be 10 per cent less than it currently pays them for Council Tax Benefit.

The council has drawn up a proposed scheme for 2013/2014 that will maintain the current levels of financial support offered to claimants, although Second Adult Rebate will end for new applicants after 31 March 2013.  It is also proposing changes to specific Council Tax exemptions and discounts currently granted in respect of second homes and empty properties, as permitted by the Local Government Finance Bill.
We are committed to ensuring that all interested parties have the opportunity to have their say.  The consultation will end on Sunday 4 November 2012. The council has to adopt its scheme by the deadline prescribed by the Government of 31 January 2013.
Please will you complete our online questionnaire in the interest of the people/service you represent. It takes around ten minutes and is also available on paper or in any format that best suits you.  Please contact Gary Layzell with any questions (01423) 556405.
