Lucy Williams born about 1620 in Plymouth. She married Robert Barker about 1645
Lucy died February 18, 1689 in Duxbury.
Cautionary Note: There seems to be some question as to Lucy's Last Name at birth.
"Robert married Lucy. Lucy died aft 1681. Although Lucy (also spelled Luce) is sometimes said to be the daughter of John and Anne Williams, that seems to be an error. Torrey’s Marriages and others state that the wife of Robert Barker was Lucy Williams. No evidence has been found to support this statement and it seems doubtful." From: Pane-Joyce Genealogy
Robert Barker in 1643 was a member, with his brother John Barker, of the Marshfield military company under Lieutenant Nathaniel Thomas. He was surveyor of Marshfield in 1645, 1648, and of Duxbury in 1654, 1672, 1677, 1679; constable of Marshfield, 1646; grand juryman of Marshfield, 1669, and of Duxbury, 1684-5; and was admitted a freeman in 1654. Robert Barker was licensed 7 July, 1646, to keep an inn in Marshfield to retail wine, which was cancelled June 5, 1666. The court in Plymouth on March 5, 1667-8, granted him nine and one-half acres of meadow at Robinson's Creek, North River, Duxbury. He married Lucy Williams and died between February 18, 1689, when his will, which mentions his children, was made and March 15, 1691-2, when the inventory of his estate was taken. His estate was valued at 142£. His wife died between March 1681-2, when she was fined for selling cider to the Indians, and February 8, 1689.
They lived in the old Barker house at Duxbury (in that art which was set off as Pembroke in 1712) which was made B garrison house about 1679; the room and fireplace at the right of the front door as you entered, was said to have been built about 1630. In 1883, Peleg* Barker, born March 31, 1795 (brother of Hannah Barker, born April 14, 1792), died here and not long after the old house became uninhabitable and soon fell down. Two views of this house are given at page 12 of the Memorial of Reverend Thomas Smith of Pembroke, by Miss Susan A Smith.
