About Robert Barker

In 1675, Lieut. Robert Barker “broke away from the army, when they were on their march, in a mutinous way, and by his example allured others to come away.” Barker was deprived of his commission — he was of Duxbury. That this mutiny was the result of Quaker principles, we judge from the circumstance, that of the fifteen others whom he allured away, five were Scituate men, and Quakers, viz. Zechariah Colman, Joseph Colman, Thomas Colman, John Rance, and John Northey: who were fined from 1£ to 8£, according to their respective offences.

There is evidence that Robert Barker obtained the ferry franchise that second wife Phebe ran along with her former husband Jonathan Marsh.
