I just found out on ancestry.ca that the same Mary Sykes (who married John Barker in 1811) was the daughter of Abel Sykes and Susannah Beaver (according to several trees).

As of now, I'll list Abel and Susannah as "uncertain" parents of Mary Sykes, since I couldn't find any census records mentioning all three of them (yet). Although I am planning to continue researching about the Sykes, feel free to give me assistance.
With the first published Census in England 1841, it is most unlikely that any record of all three mentioned together is available.

Having looked at the Christenings for John Barker & Mary for the period of 1811-1830, Huddersfield, note a sson was given the name, Abel in 1820.It was quite common for a child to be given the name of a grandparents. I think it probable that you have the correct parents for Mary.
