Born by about 1616, based on terms of apprenticeship. Came to Plymouth Colony in 1632. Died in Duxbury between 18 February 1689 (date of will) and 14 March 1691/2 (date of division of lands to the sons of his son Isaac).
Married by 1663 (and by about 1642 if she was the mother of all his children) Luce (or Lucy) _____; no other record gives her name, but she was still living on 7 March 1681/2 when "Leiftenant Robert Barker, in behalf of his mother, the wife of Robert Barker, Senior, is fined £2 10s. for that his said mother sold cider to the Indians, contrary to the law of this government". (The deed of 1663 in which "Robert Barker and Luce Barker" his wife sell land originally granted to Henry Merrick of Scituate may eventually lead to her identification. Note that both daughters of Robert Barker named daughters "Luceanna," which would indicate that Lucy was the mother of his children.)
He had 5 children, presumably by Luce/Lucy: Isaac, Francis, Rebecca (who married Josiah Snow), Robert, and Abigail (who married Joseph Rogers.
