Flag of Shropshire (adopted 2013)
Robert Barker was born in Shropshire, England.

Robert was born before 1575. He was the second son[1][2] of George Barker of Colchurst and his first wife Ann Steventon.

His siblings[1] were Andrew, Elizabeth and Margaret.

Robert Barker married Catherine Acworth[2](Page 25). This reference does not give a date for the marriage but does show three sons: John Barker (of Calverhall and Coulchurst, Shropshire), Robert Barker and William Barker. The marriage[2] is cross referenced in both the Pedigree of Horne and the Pedigree of Barker and Bulkeley family trees. Robert Barker is said to be associated with Coulchurst (Colehurst) and Calverhall in Shropshire. Further confimation of the marriage is found in the Visitation to Shropshire[1] of 1623 (Page 29) that provides evidence of more children from the marriage, viz: John, Robert and William but also Thomas, George, Mathew, Marye, Bridgett and Johanne.

Barker-11 and Barker-3741 appear to represent the same person because: Other than different fathers listed, everything else matches. Needs further research on father.
