origins of John & Robert Barker of the Plymouth Colony

From http://troutwind.tripod.com/barker1.html

Barker, Robert abt 1580 in Co., Kent, Eng., d. in Kent, Eng. He m. Catherine Ackworth abt 1614 Co. Kent.

[A document on the web says Robert Barker, of Kent and Catherine Barker were married in 1600 at St.. Andrews in Plymouth, Devonshire, Eng.. This source continues by stating that Catherine was born about 1584 in Kent, and died in Kent, she being the daughter of George Ackworth. In addition it states there is a direct line of descent from "Randulph de Calverhall, 1200 of England". Again there were no sources indicated and I tend to shy away from extended English lines prior to emigration unless the line of descent is widely acknowledged and I've seen nothing else that would tend to support this. I would appreciate it if someone could supply proof of this line that is endorsed by modern sources.]

Children:

  • 1. JOHN BARKER SR.
  • 2. Robert Barker, b. 1616 in Kent, England, d. 15 Mar. 1691 in Pembroke, Plymouth Co., MA., age 74. Robert married Lucy Williams in 1639. [UNPROVEN]

As of July 2016, John & Robert Barker have been disconnected from Catherine Ackworth & "Sir" Robert Barker as parents. Please do not reconnect them without better evidence than we've seen so far, from a public discussion. Thank you.
